Some men sitting around a bonfire hold a burning screw and pass it on from one to another. They want to get rid of their fingerprints. Some others prefer to use a razor blade. Sylvain George lived with the migrant persons in Calais (north of France) over a period of three years. The film shows the daily fight these people have to go through, sometimes so cruel that it requires to lose their own identity. Inspired by a Henri Michaux’s poem, it portraits in black and white the inhuman conditions the contemporary plebe - undocumented immigrants, but also unemployed workers, young people of the poor suburbs- live in. The repressive policies deprive them of their most elementary rights and reduce them to the state of “pure bodies” or “naked lives”.
