La vie à sac

“La vie à sac”, depicts four broken existences who speak of their solitude, illness or everyday social exclusion, notwithstanding little glimmers of hope and occasional joys. Four portraits drawn from what is left to those who no longer have very much: the contents of their bag.

ID papers, clothes or a blanket, a packet of biscuits, or a bottle of water, photos and souvenirs of “life as it was before” for some and “life elsewhere” for others… Each element in their bag becomes a thread by which to trace the lives of these four people who agreed to testify openly before the camera…

Object in mirror took care of the graphic design and the technical development of the webdoc.
