Make the Clarissa Rebouças bridge

This cultural mediation project, carried out by Spira and the Joujouthèque de la Basse-ville, aims to create short films with young people from the central neighborhoods of Quebec City. Clarissa Rebouças and the children reflected on the possibilities of uniting people from different backgrounds.


Wandering Without Return by Mélanie Carrier and Olivier Higgins
The documentary Errance sans retour offers a poetic, immersive and powerful look at the world’s most populous refugee camp, Kutupalong. In 2017, in a matter of months, 700,000 people from the Rohingya Muslim minority fled Myanmar (formerly Burma) to escape genocide and seek asylum in Bangladesh. Between poetry and nightmares, food distribution and football matches, the Rohingyas of the Kutupalong camp bear witness to their daily lives and the ghosts of the past.
