synopsis“Are you proud of yourself?” This was a question asked in 2020 by a father of one of female voluntary workers who had just come back from a rescue mission searching for drowning refugees in the Mediterranean Sea. Instead of a reply, an open letter came to life, followed by a film illustration of the feelings of ugliness and hopelessness, composed of sea waves mingling with various film footage.
“In July 2020, a young volunteer returning on the humanitarian aid ship Sea Watch 3 writes to her father. The text of this letter is put into perspective through different registers of travel images (animation, Super 8, archives…).”
