Le repli

Yasser est militant des droits de l’homme. Joseph est cinéaste. Ils interrogent, des années 80 à aujourd’hui, le phénomène du repli identitaire en France, la montée du racisme et les restrictions des libertés. Ils délivrent la parole qu’on ne veut pas entendre, en décortiquant le discours médiatique et politique, confrontant l’actualité aux archives. Pourquoi nos libertés ne cessent-elles de reculer ?

A furious, iconoclastic attack on power and the media in a modern France where Islamophobia has become mainstream and inequality is growing from the suburbs to the boulevards.

Cph dox

Director Joseph Paris filmed dozens of hours of interviews and collected a large amount of material from the French media. From the fragments of these he has compiled a visual essay on the decline of civil liberties in France.

One World

Following the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris, France declared the state of emergency. This set in motion an exit from the rule of law, with Muslims as the first, but not the only victims. Urgent, philosophical and visually interesting plea in defence of civil liberties and equality.

Movies that matter

A provocative depiction to the barely-hidden Islamophobia that exists in France, experimental filmmaker Joseph Paris exposes the malevolent media dynamics and the draconian state powers the government has operationalised following the attacks in Paris & Nice in 2015-6.

Radical Art Review

Joseph Paris fell into a state of mourning following the Paris terror attacks of 13 November, 2015, in which 130 people were killed and more than 350 injured in coordinated assaults across the French capital. It was the deadliest attack on French soil in modern history and left the country in a state of shock. However, the filmmaker was also alarmed by the government response.


Collages, split-screens and a Guy Debordian vandalisation of the (media) image itself testify to Joseph Paris’ active background in the ‘copyleft’ movement and video art. An alarming and radically critical report from a time when social divisions are widening and clashes between state power and civilians are on the rise.
