Synopsis

In January 2011, Tunisia is convulsed by revolution: even though she lives in Paris, Diane Sara Bouzgarrouz, of Tunisian origin, is deeply distressed. This feeling soon becomes even stronger and more upsetting: the emotional impact of these events is so strong that she falls into a manic-depressive state which is so overwhelming that she loses her memory and has to spend a month in a psychiatric hotel. Five years later, she discovers an entire archive of film clips, recordings, notes and photographs of that period which she thought was lost forever. They are the only elements she has for understanding what happened, inside and around her. It is the point of departure for the reconstruction of a very precise and fundamental moment of her past, and more.

Director statement

“This is the story of a broken memory. A memory locked on a harddrive. I wanted to look at the pieces of the puzzle – footage, sounds. To face the black holes. Remember. Show the violence of this inner storm.”
