And Then, Violence

Poster for And Then, Violence Rebecca, 22, is a secular Jewish Parisian Law student. After the recent terror attacks of January, which hit the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, a French Police officer and clients of a Kosher supermarket in the French Capital, she tries to reconnect with Jonathan, 23, her Jewish ex-boyfriend, who's a bit more religious than her, and who's just moved back to Paris after studying in the US. Their daily lives are constantly interrupted by the violence and the ambient anti-Semitism, which have infiltrated French society over the past few years. Stuck in between their fear, living as Jews in France, their will to leave for a safer place, and their strong ties to a country they have so dearly loved for generations, Rebecca, Jonathan and their families wonder what happened to the French Republic, once a symbol of freedom, equality and fraternity; now a broken system where communities curl up on themselves, allowing violence and hate to resurface.
