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.
