Statu Quo

10’17, Canada, 2021

Directors: Lamia Chraibi, Marion Chuniaud-Lacau


In a world in suspense, a common history is written. Without seeing each other, without touching, bodies move to the rhythm of boredom.


Marion and Lamia are two self-taught directors who met in Montreal. Their respective first films, made in Latin America with people fighting to preserve their communities, led them to start their career in documentary cinema. Today, their complicity and the singularity of their journey leads them to carry even further their sensitivity and their political views on the world. Trained since then at the Institut National de l’Image et du Son (INIS) in Montreal, the two directors are exploring common interests, notably around dance. Statu quo is the result of their first artistic collaboration.


The film will be part of the screening on 27.10.2022, 18:30-20:00, Festival and Congress Centre – Varna.
