Cette Maison (This House)

Bridgeport, 2008: a teenage girl is found hanged in her room. While everything points to suicide, the autopsy report reveals something else. Ten years later, director Miryam Chalres – cousin of the teenager – examines the past causes and future consequences of this unsolved crime. Like an imagined biography, the film explores the relationship between the security of the living space and the violence that can jeopardise it.
