Drancy Avenir dvd - 1996 film by Arnaud des Pallières. His debut feature, it blurs the boundaries between fiction and documentary to present a triptych of compelling stories about the extermination of the Jews in Europe. The films opens with a tale about the last survivor of the extermination of the Jews, who laments not writing an enduring account of the horrors he witnessed. In the second tale, a young historian is doing research on the concentration camp that operated in Drancy, outside of Paris. On discovering that the place is still used as a low-rent housing complex, the young woman conjugates the story of the extermination of the Jews of Europe in the present and thus discovers that the world she lives in is the world of the Final Solution. In the third tale, a ship's captain recounts a journey up an uncharted river towards a little-known civilization. Stars Aude Amiot, Thierry Bosc and Anne-Lisa Nathan. Remastered edition, in French with optional subtitles in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian, Hungarian or Hebrew. All zone dvd. 84 minutes.
