Le camp fantôme


A documentary by Tessa Racine

This is the story of my search to revive from the traces of a disappeared internment camp at Nexon (France), from its creation in 1940 to destruction in 1945. Starting from the housing estate built on the very location of the camp, I go through an imaginary wire of questions, the answers of which will arise according evidences given by René, Henri, Roger - who were confined in the Nexon camp - and by Laurette de la Cimade. Wandering back and forth between my search and their memories, "The ghost camp" appears again from the dark.
