WEIGHT OF SILENCE 

This documentary is a long term project that I started seven months ago, that

documents the weight of religion in people’s daily life in Paris, focusing on various

communities issued from Islam, Judaism and Christianity.

 

Most of the rites take place behind closed doors, following the principle of laicity in

France, but yet, by documenting these communities through celebrations and cults

during an entire year, I tried to explore how something invisible can affect the visible,

and the impact it has on the rhythm of thousands of persons’s life.

This project was the subject of my work during the Noor/Nikon workshop I attended, tutored by Benedicte Kurzen, Pep Bonet and Robin Hammond.
