The Metamorphosis

THE METAMORPHOSIS

a film by Nabil Bellahsene

I have been living in France for 20 years and I am Algerian. My residence permit expires in less than a year but I don’t want to just fill in a naturalization application form. I want to document my journey, my emotions, my hopes and my questions about my dual identity. I want to become French, out of love, out of desire, out of envy. But does this choice imply renunciation?
