Film screening on migration experiences at the Hispano-Portuguese border

Re-Place member Amandine Desille was invited to screen her film “Je suis partout et nulle part à la fois” (2021) at the Festival de Setembro, organised by Ourém municipality on 8,9 and 10 September 2023. 

This annual event takes place in the beautiful medieval city of Ourém, with a new theme for each edition. This year, “Nós, Migrantes” brought to the fore the experiences, practices and identities of migrant residents of the area, and invited the public to reflect on the wealth of migration for community development through conferences, exhibitions, performances and films. 

Following the projection of the film, the audience exchanged around the potential of circular and return migrations in left-behind places – a topic also central to the Re-Place project.
