A French-speaking belgian documentary at FIDMarseille

The 2023 edition of FIDMarseille begins on Tuesday, July 4th. Among the films showcased for this new edition, there is a Wallonie Bruxelles production in competition.

FIDMarseille is a major event for filmmakers from around the world, offering a unique opportunity to share their works with an enthusiastic audience and industry professionals. Among the selected films for the 2023 edition is The Diagonal Force by Annick Leroy, produced by Cobra Films.

In ‘The Diagonal Force’ several men and women reflect on how to live with a turning point in their life and possibly be transformed by it. The film weaves subtle connections between these personal narratives to highlight the impact of external conflicts on individuals. It then turns to a key focus in the work of political philosopher Hannah Arendt: the human capacity to begin, to introduce something new into the world we share. ‘La force diagonale’ seeks to render tangible this human dimension, always threatened and yet ever irrepressible

The film will be presented in its world premiere in the International Competition.

The 2023 edition of FIDMarseille takes place from July 4th to 9th.
