Texte

Fifteen adolescents from Bosnia, Kurdistan, Portugal and Brazil are being taught French at a “reception class”. Either escaping from a war-torn country, or simply joining parents who have long been in Switzerland as “seasonal workers” the young people have one thing in common: their idealisation of the host country as a “promised Land”. In their privileged relationship with the teacher they forget that for them the future remains unpromising – repatriation in the case of the Bosnian refugees, dead-end jobs for the others.
