Carmen de Castillo

Nowadays, what is political involvement made of? Is it still possible to have an influence on the fatal course of the world? With these questions and through a dialogue, both intimate and political, with her recently deceased friend, philosopher and activist Daniel Bensaïd, Carmen Castillo starts a journey towards those who decided not to accept the world they are given anymore. From homeless persons in Paris to Brazil’s landless workers, from Mexican Zapatistas to Marseille’s north-districts, from Bolivian water warriors to trade-unions in Saint-Nazaire, the faces met along this path draw the portrait of today’s activism, made of shared hopes, intimate dreams but also of discouragement and defeats. As Daniel, they all say : “History is not written in advance, we are the ones who make it”.
