From Brazil to Iran, via Wallonia and Africa, Thierry Michel has always made films on a human scale, creating an intelligent body of work that helps us to distinguish the false from the true. He has an ability to explore foreign lands right down to their roots, always with the aim of finding what is universal and of trying to understand the state of the world through the Other. His committed cinema has traversed the last 40 years of our recent history. When, today, José?Luis Peñafuerte takes a look at Thierry Michel's career, his film reveals 40 years of memories and of human struggles. What he offers us is not just a lesson in cinema, but a fascinating reflection on the real, on memory, on commitment, on the complexity of the world, and on human destiny.
