“We play what we experienced in the demonstrations, by bringing sadness, laughter.

It's authentic, ”explains Maddy Piazza, soon in her sixties.

“Some scenes bother me a bit,” Maddy Piazza concedes about the scenes caricaturing the police, “but there you go, everyone has their say.


"You have people who were totally introverted, and who open up today," says Sabine Fremeau, chef in a restaurant in the Lille metropolis.

The most extraordinary thing for me is everything that is happening around the room ”.
