The Day

Morgane Dziurla-Petit | Sweden/France | 2017 | 25 minutes

Paris, 7th of May 2017, day of the results of the french presidential elections. During this historic evening, the paths of four people intertwine each other while Europe is divided. Marie, a young student, Louis, a thirty-year-old Parisian, Rheda, a young man from the suburbs and Sylvie, a woman from the countryside being in Paris for the weekend with her husband. They share different political opinions, some voting for Marine Le Pen, others sharing a different hope for France. In the midst of this, lies their misunderstanding for each other. Their paths will intersect until they find themselves in the early morning still facing the unknown but being now in front of a new rising sun.


Premiered at Gothenburg Film Festival 2018, distributed by Eroïn.
