2009 Collection

Ansam / Ensemble

A collection of short movies from Mauritius.
Since 2007, the Centre Culturel Charles Baudelaire and the association Porteurs d’Images organise Île Courts, the International Short Film Festival of Mauritius. With the 2008 edition, a script writing workshop intended for Mauritian authors and directors, has taken place, and was ran by the script writers Olivier Gorce and Sabrina Compeyron. These working sessions have led to the realisation of five short movies around as same theme: Together.
We present here the result of this work, hoping that this will be the first edition of a long series of Mauritian films.
