1950, nominated for the Prix Goncourt, Marguerite Duras' "Barrage contre le pacifique" will not be awarded. Too Marxist, subversive, unpatriotic... for the time, obviously. A great novel, which was one of the first to denounce the horrors of colonization, the film proposes a re-reading of it, with a particular focus on the appropriation of indigenous bodies.
