Philippe Lioret - 2009 | Immigrant drama: how to cross the English Channel?

In correspondence with Feest aan Zee, we open our new season of films with movies on, in or around the sea.

Welcome (Philippe Lioret, 2009)
The story of French swimming coach Simon Calmat and his encounter with Bilal, a 17 years old Kurdish immigrant, who wants to have swimming lessons in order to cross the English Channel only to reach his girlfriend Mina in England. Touched by Bilal’s strong wish, Simon decides to help him. But there is more than the cold water with strong currents that the two must face. Released in 2009, director Phillippe Lioret’s Welcome opens a door to a more politicised, transnational and culturally-sensitive France.

*In French, Kurdish and English, with English subtitles.
