The human space

Le Kiosque Alexandra Pianelli

Le Kiosque

Parisian filmmaker and visual artist Alexandra Pianelli lends her mother a hand by working in the newspaper kiosk her family has owned for generations. From her post behind the counter, Alexandra invites us behind the scenes of a business destined for obsolescence, her cellphone camera providing a glimpse of a tiny space that seems to encapsulate the life of an entire neighbourhood. In this private world, we meet the customers that give the shop its unique character, while the kiosk itself appears as an essential component of the social fabric of the 16th arrondissement. Alexandra pieces together a documentary that, while unsentimental, records the end of an era with humour and sensitivity. (Programming Collective)

Presented in collaboration with the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN)
