Endless Letterpress. The mechanical printing press refuses to die

Each week at the Public Information Library, a small group of people meet to practice French in seemingly banal conversations, revealing diverse and sometimes antagonistic life paths.

Refugees, expatriates or students meet in front of the camera that captures, through sentences and glances, the secrets and the unspoken. 

Beyond oppositions, all share the same goal of integration through language.
