Ciné-Doc : “Une histoire à soi” VOSTFR

Ciné-Doc : The documentary meeting in your regional cinemas


Organized in regional cinemas in Switzerland, Ciné-Doc screenings are events where the public, filmmakers and local associations meet.

Initiated in the Vallée de Joux in 2016, the project now has 10 partner cinemas in 5 cantons, in the Vallée de Joux, Orbe, Chexbres, Payerne, Bulle, Morat, Martigny, Monthey, Tavannes and Delémont.

Once a month, from October to April, a documentary film is shown in each of these cinemas during a unique screening, in the presence of guests, led by a team of mediators.

“A story of your own
Anne-Charlotte, Joohee, Céline, Niyongira, Mathieu are between 25 and 52 years old. Originally from Brazil, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, South Korea or Australia, the protagonists of the film share a common identity: that of adopted persons. Separated from their families and countries of origin since childhood, they have grown up in French families. Their life stories take us into an intimate and at the same time political history of international adoption.

As unique in its form – the film is composed solely of the voice-overs and family albums of the protagonists – as it is warm in its sympathetic listening, Une Histoire à Soi is a sensitive and committed documentary.
