MICE Magazine is pleased to present a special free screening of the personal documentary Brûle la mer (Burn the Sea) on Friday 16 June 2017 in collaboration with the 2nd annual Toronto Art Book Fair. This screening is presented as a companion to the essay in MICE Magazine 02 "Brule la mer: A Welcome Returned" by Chris Kennedy and Samuel La France: http://micemagazine.ca/issue-two/brûle-la-mer-welcome-returned

Brûle la mer employs co-director Maki Berchache’s own experience of leaving Tunisia after the 2011 Jasmine Revolution as the entry point for a collective narrative about the harragas, or 'border burners', North Africans seeking refuge in Europe. “The film is a poetic quest which combines materiality (in the strictest sense of that which is material life) and abstraction: the experience of rupture, of reversal. The images should render perceptible the connection between a country left behind and the country of dreams, and then, the reversal which slowly takes hold, of how the country of dreams becomes the country left behind.” -Nathalie Nambot
