Synopsis

Épopée is a collective project led by Rodrigue Jean, the idea for which was born during the shooting of the film Hommes à louer (2008), when participants expressed the desire to create fictional work in addition to the documentary film. Made up of stories— Fictions and Trajets —written and filmed in collaboration with marginalised people, Épopée claims for cinema—writing, shooting, editing, screening—the status of a gesture and instrument of freedom and community. These films do not paint fictional or real portraits of their protagonists; together, they create a highly political portrait of our society, its structure and the segregation on which it is based.[1]
