‘TO THE FOUR WINDS’ is entitled ‘LIBRE’ in French, meaning ‘free’. This remarkable documentary is unafraid to boldly declare its humanitarianism regarding the refugee crisis around France (which is why we at Lost in Frenchlation have presented it alongside Serve the City Paris, a local relief collective). TO THE FOUR WINDS is gripping, on both a political and a personal level. Cédric Herrou, the film’s subject, has been aiding refugees since 2015 and is now being accused of a ‘solidarity offense’…The film is necessary and relevant to understanding the legal complexities of the immigration crisis.
In the Roya valley located between France and Italy, thousands of migrants try to cross the border each month in search for a better life. Cédric Herrou, a local farmer, has been welcoming migrants at his home since the beginning of the crisis. With the help of friends and volunteers, he challenges French immigration policies. Filmed over two years by Michel Toesca, Cédric will do anything to help these people, even risk his own freedom. – Synopsis

•☆OPTIONAL MOVIE-THEMED CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES WALKING TOUR☆
Lost in Frenchlation and Ciné-Balade have teamed up to bring you this cinema-themed experience where you’ll be taken on a walk through cinema history down the iconic Champs-Élysées. Almost sixty years ago, Jean Seberg and Jean-Paul Belmondo became famous by walking down the same avenue in “Breathless” by Jean-Luc Godard – a film that changed the way of making movies. With this movie tour, we will go back in time, seeking the locations of the film, and talking about French and American movies which immortalized the avenue in cinema. The walk starts at 5pm and lasts for approximately 1 and a 1/2 hours. ☞ TICKETS: https://www.weezevent.com/lost-in-frenchlation-x-cine-balade-movie-themed-champs-elysees-walking-tour-2
