"Words are flying away: the exiled memory" (12 minutes)
Soon after Andrée moved to live in a residency for elderly people, the doctors realized she had Alzheimer's disease.
I accompanied her in her daily life during five years, to make the portrait of an elderly person suffering from Alzheimer, a sad disease that becomes a metaphor for the aging: Andrée's memories were wiped away prematurely, and by the same the history of her family. My Family.
A chapter in a family vanishes while the historical memories of the last Pieds-Noirs from Algeria disappear.
