A Season in France

Une saison en France

Director: Mahamat-Saleh Haroun

Cast:

Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s soul-searching film focuses on the plight of undocumented asylum seekers desperately trying to find sanctuary in Europe.

Abbas (Ebouaney), a college professor and father of two, seeks political asylum in France after fleeing the civil war that has raged in the Central African Republic since 2013. Widowed when his wife died in attempting to escape the country with him, he has since met Carole (Bonnaire), who consoles him in his anguish at the French immigration system. Everything he holds dear, including his hopes for both his future and those of his children, lie in the decision of the French immigration authorities.

Ebouaney and Bonnaire both give compelling performances, while Haroun masterfully contrasts the intimacy of human relationships with the cold bureaucracy of a vast, impersonal system.

In French, with English subtitles.
