Les bonnes du sud — 2013

Following with the TANGER MED project, Paul decides to travel to southern Tunisia, two years after the revolution. It’s around the intercity zones of Gafsa that the uprisings got sparked. A shocking contrast divides Tunisia. On the one hand it’s breathtaking costal scenery and its touristic resorts. On the other hand, the underdeveloped southern regions, incredibly rich in sulfates, generate immense wealth which is in no way fairly redistributed.

Interested by the idea of struggle representation, Paul depicts, through a variety of portraits, a landscape of protests in a post revolutionary atmosphere. Liberty of speech being at the heart of the movement, we feel carried by it, but we also face its limitations, Where is the limit of what can be photographed? To reach what ideal? Paul is familiar with the collective imagination of revolution, through history books on the french revolution. The film expresses the desire to witness as well as take part in a drastic transition which is taking place in these regions today.
