When the oldest of us understood that our destination would be the Fort of Oualata, he started crying. He could not believe that some men could send others so far. (Excerpt from the film) Le cercle des noyés (the drowned men) is the name given in Mauritania to black political prisoners imprisonned from 1987 in the old colonial fortress of Oualata. This film touches on the fragile process of unveiling memories by one of these former prisoners who remembers his story and that of his companions. In a visual echo, the places of their confinement come one after another denuded from any traces of that past.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
