The Roller, The Life, The Fight

Hazem arrives in Belgium after a painful journey from Gaza. At the same time, Elettra arrives in Brussels to study documentary film. Their first moments together are revealing and trigger the desire to know each other through the medium of film. The camera becomes the tool they share for understanding. Through the images of their lives, we are plunged into the details of the meeting of two worlds. The displacements they endure strengthen their wish to resist a divided society; the act of recording is a commitment to justice. Being confronted to the rigidity of Hazem’s asylum procedure, they embark on an exile, an inner migration to reach a place where gazes are softer and more just.
