Volontary Return Serie

Around : TUNISIA - MALI - SENEGAL - CAMEROUN - ARMENIA - MOROCCO

This year I directed 12 films Portraits of foreigners having been helped by the OFII : French Office for Immigration and Integration (attached to the Ministry of the Interior) for the socio-professional return in their country of origin. 
Today each of these people received a support by the OFII to bring to a successful conclusion their new life projects.

Produced by Burgundi Prod, we went to meet them in their country.
We followed each person for 2 days and transcribed in each of the films their new life and hope for the future.

Created in 1945, OFII, French Office for Immigration and Integration is now the only French State’s operator in charge of immigration procedures (family, student and professional), the reception of asylum seekers, the integration of new arrivals and the voluntary return and reintegration of foreign nationals.
