We were 4 students when we made this short documentary. We wanted to talk about homeless women, and we met Elina Dumont, and after learning her story, we focused on her reintegration through her show.
The team coordinated by Augustin Rogel shows us a committed documentary that tells us about the life of Elina Dumont, the harsh living conditions of homeless people and how this is a serious problem even in the most industrialized countries. The gaps must be reduced and “Elina Dumont : The rebirth of a woman” calls us to work for SDG 10 and 5, also to destigmatize those who suffer from these socio-economic gaps.
Elina Dumont is a woman who shows us the power of will and the conquest of dignity in a sick society that values its members for what they have and not for what they are. A story of overcoming that is shown with careful documentary photography from the perspective of the lens of a diverse team of young filmmakers.
