Synopsis

English Synopsis:
“La Carrière Fontblanche” is one of the last slums of France bordering Cassis. A village with no name, no children or women, which houses Tunisians who arrived in the 1970s, contract in hand to build the villas of the seaside town. In October 2005, after 35 years, the village was destroyed, to be replaced by council housing. The documentary tells the individual stories of some of these men, weakened by years of exile, sacrifice and selflessness to support their families back home. The prospect of a new habitat for them is a second uprooting.

French Synopsis:
« La carrière Fontblanche », l’un des derniers bidonvilles de France en bordure de Cassis. Un village sans nom, sans enfant ni femme, qui abrite des tunisiens venus dans les années 1970, contrat en main, pour construire les villas de la cité balnéaire. En octobre 2005, le village improvisé et insalubre où ils habitent depuis 35 ans est détruit, pour être remplacé par une résidence sociale.
