Forever

Forever.jpg

(Mersolis Schöne)

Synopsis: As an archive in constant change, walls surround us. As on skin, traces of urban life are shown on them. Out of the corners of our eyes, scratches, nicks, shapes, letters and words are absorbed by us in passing moments. This is an attempt to escape the temporal dimension of our being - "Friends Forever" - and anchor in the exuberance of feelings - "Love". They reveal our longing for continuity, visibility and the expression of becoming. The past is reflected in these skins of the city. Today’s manifestations of eternity will be nothing more than tomorrow’s background for future messages: constant change and eternity at the same time - being preserved in change.

(Arnaud Blin)

Synopsis: Rémy Cassigneul was 19, Marguerite Cassigneul 17 when, on June 6, 1944, the Allied forces landed in Normandy. They expected to see Americans, their ears theirs soon made it clear that they were Canadians. Of young men barely older than them who, after 4 years of occupation, freed them from occupation German in the Juno Beach area. A bunch of sand of ten kilometers stretching from Courseulles in Saint-Aubin-sur-mer. 75 later, Marguerite and Rémy are part of this family increasingly reduced witnesses to the D-Day landings, those whose eyes say "I was there".
For them, this famous D-Day is not a simple page from a history book, a chapter from a documentary. This is an essential part of their life that they have agreed to share with us, in this documentary, on the occasion commemorations of the 75th anniversary of Landing.
With them we go to the very place where landed the Canadians on June 6, 1944, in the Bény-sur-mer Canadian military cemetery / Reviers where more than 2,000 soldiers rest, at the very place where the Canadians freed them. We also meet young people from the north coast of New Brunswick, Canada, many of whom have relatives who fought in Normandy, collectors of military vehicles….
But, above all, we give the words to those who can still speak in first person, to those for whom this land liberated by the Canadians is forever a land emotions.
With an additional dimension: December 4, 2019, Rémy Cassigneul passed away at the age of 95. In his eyes, there was the gaze of these soldiers until the end Canadians who marked his life forever.
