Part road-trip, part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Revenir follows Kumut Imesh, a refugee from the Ivory Coast now living in France, as he returns to the African continent and attempts to retrace the same journey that he himself took when forced to flee civil war in his country – this time with a camera in his hand.

Traveling alone, Kumut documents his journey both as the main protagonist in front of the camera, as well as the person behind it, revealing the human struggle for freedom and dignity on one of the most dangerous migratory routes in the world. Revenir depicts a courageous journey and a unique collaboration between filmmaker and refugee; which is not without consequences.

Presented in partnership with GRAMNet.
