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.

This film deals with state surveillance in China by focusing on three human rights lawyers persecuted by the authorities, and thus delivers a very comprehensive picture of the consequences this has on this society in particular and societies in general.

Screening followed by a meeting with Katia Roux, Freedom Advocacy Officer at Amnesty International France.
Moderated by Marjorie Bertin, journalist with RFI and Courrier de l'Atlas.
