An initimate and immersive perspective on the 'Jungle of Calais', evoked by a polyphony of men, stories and feels. A sensory journey through the daily life of migrants, characterised by survival strategies.
A film of wind and despair, of fire and solidarity, of hope and hell.
In close cooperation with some former residents of the 'Jungle of Calais', Laurent Van Lancker offers a poetic and political view on the daily life of migrants, which he experienced during his frequent visits of the 'Jungle'. Some of the images were filmed by the migrants themselves, evoking a great intimacy. Kalès offers a view on the lives of migrants in the European transit zones and the human capacity to adapt to all situations.
