“When it was over I was lying on the sofa with a cushion on my face, whimpering in fear and paranoia. Ingenious and harrowing... left me reeling”
(Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)

“A sucker-punch of a film that grabs the viewer's attention from the first frame and never lets go. Being topical and provocative are marks of a great short film but this is a movie you can't take your eyes off”
(Edinburgh International Film Festival, 2007)

“A frighteningly realistic take on violence that deftly blends emotional complexity with a keen understanding of the darker side of youth culture”
(Palm Springs International Short Film Festival, USA 2007)

“A powerful, dramatic short about a subject that all of us know in one form or another”
(Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival, Toronto 2007)

“A powerful piece of film summing up the UK zeitgeist of hoodies, happy-slapping and gang culture, while giving us a truthful character-driven drama of a son's disappointment with his Father”
(Hamburg International Short Film Festival, Germany 2007)

As I Am

a narrative film in English

Chris Dean’s heart stopped when he was two. He died but he came back. When Chris was five, his father was murdered, riddled by more than 20 bullets in a gang shootout. At age 18, Chris gained national attention when he introduced President Barack Obama at his high school graduation. Chris is an observer and philosopher who has always had a few things to say about life from his vantage point in South Memphis. He and Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Alan Spearman walked the neighborhood for eight weeks observing and recording what became the script of As I Am. This film floats through this remarkable young man's landscape, revealing the lives that have shaped his world. Poetic and powerful imagery, captured by Spearman and cinematographer Mark Adams, combines with the young philosopher’s trenchant observations about life.

André Kaspi : "La circulation des armes aggrave la situation aux Etats-Unis"

a talk in French

Une manifestation en hommage à Michael Brown a dégénéré ce dimanche 9 août à Ferguson aux Etats-Unis. La mort de ce jeune homme noir, abattu par un policier blanc, avait déclenché il y a un an une vague d'émeutes, dénonçant les violences policières contre les Afro-américains. Quel bilan, un an après? L'historien spécialiste des Etats-Unis est l'invité de Pierre Weill.
