Migrations. le rapport Alpha

by Henri Michel Boccara

In this original variation on the theme of migration, the destinies of six people who have migrated are recounted in the voice of one of them. They may encounter violence and injustice, some fit into current realities, others spring from the distant past; but there is a commonality in the recounting: the reasons for migration and their experiences. The interwoven stories of waves of men and women, desperate or driven by strong beliefs, are told by the reporter, at the end of his career. This man, who is the centre of the risky encounters, seeks the reasons and truth about his own exile.
