  • Here I’m not gonna die

    a film by Cécile Dumas et Edie Laconi

    Selectionned at REEL Recovery Film Festival, november 2020

    A medically supervised drug consumption site has opened in Paris. Many are only passing through. Some stay a while. Among them are Marco, Cilo, Julie, Hervé… who go there daily. It’s a shelter from the violence of life on the streets. They come here to inject themselves out of sight of others but also to rest, take care of their bodies, exist in the eyes of others. And talk a little.
    “Here I’m not gonna die”, smiles Marco. “On the street, I’m practically invisible”, says Jeff, describing his life on the streets. “I’ve become sociable again”, confides Baguette.
    Outside, signs stuck on the windows saying “no to the fix room”, remind us that not everyone welcomes this place.
    Inside, life gets organised. Sometimes the trivial aspects of daily life get the upper hand.These men and women’s words give us an insight into the humanity that is often denied them.
