Unspoken words

"The price of exile", ACSR, RTBF, La Première
Belgium, land of hope: Rabia, born in Morocco, is determined to reach out for a brighter future and leaves her children and her country behind. Yet paradise is not free of charge.

"The price of exile" ("Le prix de l'exile", Atelier de Création Sonore Radiophonique ACSR, RTBF, La Première) is a carefully crafted programme about great expectations shattering on a social ground we tend to ignore. "On ne parle pas beaucoup", one of the protagonists says: "The price of exile" is a quiet and slow-paced piece about unspoken words, about loneliness, love, anger and grief, and about two worlds seemingly light years apart. Even if a number of underlying stories remain untold: "The price of exile" is a remarkable portrait of a family that has been torn apart.
