The Shining Stars


a film by Simone Fluhr and Daniel Coche, 94' In a yellow house, situated at the heart of Strasbourg, people come from all over the world with a glimmer of hope to find refuge from the persecutions, which have forced them into exile.  

Unbeknown to them, another kind of violation will be added to the violent scars of their past: one that we make them endure, here, with us.

This film questions the state of a society, our own, at the height of a reversal in meaning: violating those who have already been subject to so much violence, criminalizing those who seek our security and protection.

It also shows the daily struggles of citizens who are, more or less, helplessly witness to their despair.
