Séverine Enjolras, Magali Bragard
During a summer in Paris and its suburbs, two young directors attempt a remake of "Chroniques d'un été", fifty years after the cult film of Rouch and Morin. An offbeat portrait of nowday's youth, as a mirror image of the 1960s, while questions of the "cinéma vérité" are revisited with fancy.
Séverine Enjolras and Magali Bragard are both holders of a DEA in visual anthropology obtained in 2003 in Paris 10 - Nanterre, under the direction of Jean Rouch. In 2009 they co-directed a short documentary film, "Dombes", on the study and management of a health risk. They are both teachers in documentary cinema, they created and organized in 2007 and 2008 a festival of films in the West Bank. Séverine Enjolras has also directed several documentaries, institutional films and films around citizen consultation workshops. Magali Bragard, in addition to his work of realization, is also a stage and press photographer.

Archipelago is a journey through ancient myths, exorcism rituals, sounds and spirits. In the south of Iran, on a group of islands of the Persian Gulf, humans and spirits coexist since centuries. The culture and traditions of these Islands are the result of the encounters between the African Diaspora, the Arab Countries and Iran, generating a unique system of syncretic beliefs. Spirits of different heritages and origins, called Bād, the Persian word for wind, moving through the air, take possession of the islanders bodies and can only be quieted through a music ceremony called the Zār Ritual. Thanks to an unprecedented access given to foreign film makers, the Film showcases stories and landscape s of the islanders daily life within the frame of the Rituals, giving, through pounding drum rhythms and wailing vocal chorus, a rare and unexpected glimpse of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Camilla Insom, anthropologist lives and works Sulaimaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan.
