Directed by Arnaud des Pallieres
Comprising three narratives, Arnaud des Pallieres'
profound film meditates on the lingering impact of the Holocaust on France.
The first tale concerns the last survivor, who laments not leaving behind an
account of the horrors he witnessed. In the second, a young historian
researching the deportation camp in Drancy, France, discovers the site is
now occupied by a deplorable housing project called La Muette ("The
Silent"). In the final chapter, a ship's captain recounts a journey up an
uncharted river towards a little-known civilization. "After Resnais' Nuit
et Brouillard and Lanzmann's Shoah, Drancy Avenir can be
defined as the film of the third generation..." (Le Monde). In French
