At the edge of a forest, an older man stares into binoculars hoping to catch sight of a stag. In a dingy Paris parking lot, a man repairs a car while talking to his mother back home in Mali. Driving through tidy neighborhoods, a nurse visits elderly patients in their homes. The film’s soundtrack is pierced by a rumbling train. What do these people have in common? What connects them? Why are they in this film? In Alice Diop’s strikingly original, thoughtfully inquisitive and refreshingly optimistic WE, the filmmaker turns her camera on the “ordinary” people living in the shadow of the RER B train that crosses Paris from north to south. These are the forgotten people whose stories are habitually lost without a trace. The connections are there to be discovered, hidden in plain sight.
