Event Description

They had a dream tells a story based on reality. It is both a social and a fictional saga, exploring the interconnected lives of two Guadeloupean families to reveal hidden or obscure aspects of French society.

In the Sixties, the idea of a ‘dream France’ appealed to many French West Indians and Reunion Islanders. The BUMIDOM (Bureau for the Development of Migration in Overseas Districts) encouraged them to leave their native lands to escape the poverty caused by the closure of sugar mills, among other factors.

Although they were overseas citizens of France, these people (some of whom were the victims of a compulsory emigration policy, while others had spontaneously decided to move to Metropolitan France) found that life there was very different than the one they had imagined…

Guadeloupean Actress and Activist Firmine Richard is known for her roles in 8 Women (2002), Hunting and Gathering (2007), La kiné (1998) and Romuald et Juliette (1988).
