A poetical-political experience takes place in Roubaix, a town with an industrial past which is
considered today as the most depressed area of France. For six months, Anna Marziano makes sound

different crossing spaces, creating a sort of cartography of micro-transformations of human
A work on the dynamic character of individual identity. A relational praxis in an urban community. A way of understanding cinema as a public space.
