Storyline

Every day, thousands of miles from here, dozens of men driven by hope, set out with the intention of arriving in Europe. During the first days of their crossing between Agadez and Djanet, these emigrants confront the violent acceleration in time and the organic stillness of the desert. December 1998. The African desert. Car headlights light up an indistinct jumble of men piled onto the back of a pick-up bobbing into view and disappearing. This image remained in my memory and to make this film I returned to the place where I had seen it. I had to find those I had lost in those that I would find. It takes five days to swing from the status of a citizen to that of an illegal immigrant, a place which, far from being a piece of scenery reveals itself to be the enemy.
