A Narrow Escape
a film by Daniel Coche, 27'Henri Keller, a former miner born in 1933, has spent over 30 years of his life traveling from one mine to another; from Mulhouse to deepest Africa, passing through Morocco and Britain.
At forty, he began to write to leave his mark. His first novel "Amelia" was prefaced by Simone de Beauvoir, and he later published a second novel "Boo-Boo"and a collection of short stories "Azougar".
The film paints a portrait of this rebellious man whose strength is both in the lucidity and his capacity of irony.
