EXILE OF THE TAMILS
Director(s): Claire CHOGNOT – Writer(s): Claire CHOGNOT Contact Print page
This conflict forced many Tamils to flee, especially to France. Among them were many deaf and thirty of them live today in the Paris region. The stories of several families who have been living for a long time in France or that of deaf people who have only recently arrived, as well as a hearing Tamil who knows sign language, reveal their multi-faceted identities made up of a rich mix of different cultures and traditions.
This is a community which came to find refuge in France and who managed to make a home for themselves in the country.
