n its 5 chapters that carry poetic titles borrowed from Rimbaud or from other powerful voices, L'IMPOSSIBLE moves from Calais to Paris, from black & white to colour, from mute to sound, from Super 8 to video, from muffled words to free jazz, from the snow of winter to the recent uprisings of May 1st, from the bodies of migrants to leaflets denouncing the chameleons of a class that is in power. If these current events burn with urgency to the point of reddening the frames of the film, it is an actuality that does not pertain only to the present. It stretches between a past and a future that the editing brings together.

I make the films I want to see, films that I feel are an emergency; they are necessary.
After Sylvain George (1968, Vaulx-en-Velin, France) graduated in Philosophy and worked as a social worker, he eventually made the decision to follow his dreams and became a filmmaker. Inspired by the work of the philosopher Walter Benjamin, he makes short and feature-length documentaries in which immigration plays an important role.
