The Flag

The Flag reflects on the aftermath of the 2015 Paris attacks, exploring the decline of civil liberties as local media and politics continue othering Arab and African communities.

The Flag focuses on deconstructing the identity-based political and journalistic discourse that has become dominant in France and on the decline in civil liberties.
The Flag is a graphic film, a montage film; written both from the viewpoint of its author, in the wake of Chris Marker’s essay films, and the one of Yasser Louati, human rights and civil liberties advocate.
