Director: Alice Diop (France, 2020, 117’, subtitled in English)

Synopsis: An urban train link, the RER B, crosses Paris and its outskirts from north to south. Through a journey within indistinct spaces known as inner cities and suburbs we confront some of the faces and stories of which they are composed. We is a moving testament to the importance of filming as a process of bearing witness and remembering. It is subtle and shrewd in a world that favours shortcuts and easy answers.
