Territoires cinématographiques is a space for dialogue between the performing arts and cinema, created in collaboration with Avignon's Utopia cinemas. It's a daily gathering of film screenings, at the end of which the public meets and exchanges with theater artists, choreographers, filmmakers, activists, critics and journalists invited to the Festival d'Avignon. It's a space designed to explore the intimate relationships these guests maintain between disciplines and with the world. It's a place where we can take a closer look, both large and small, at the themes brought to the stage, the territories of the guest language, and under the plane trees of the Café des idées.

Eleven-year-old Chala grows up in the working-class neighborhoods of Havana, oscillating between the child who should be going to school and the young man who is taking care of a failing mother... Throughout the film, there are superb love stories, those of the characters and those around them...

For all ages 10 and up.
