“Three men are working on a construction site. The work has been interrupted by five months of imprisonment. The rain suddenly falls like the silence that precedes an eviction.” These words serve as a description of the most recent film made by Elie Maissin and Mieriën Coppens in close collaboration with members of the Brussels collective La Voix des Sans Papiers. But the suggestion of a narrative strand glosses over the actual force of this haunting chamber piece which unfolds like a mystery play: the poetical power distilled from the sophisticated play of light and shadow forms the background against which the characters appear as singular actors of their own existence, autonomous in their ways of doing and their dreams of resistance.
