Premières solitudes, Claire Simon, France, 2018, 100’

 

At 16-18, if you're lucky, you're in secondary school. Here we are in Ivry and we talk between lessons, sometimes even during lessons. Sitting in the corridors, outside on a bench or on a parapet overlooking the town, the young people talk in pairs or trios. They discover each other's stories, the stories they inherit, tell their family, their passions and also their loneliness. At that age, everyone sees the moment when they will have to leave their family, when it exists... or run away from it even more when it is broken. Being alone is good and bad.
