Mixing fragmented stories of people with views of a landscape in perpetual transformation, we travel intimately in the footsteps of a contemporary Alice in what was once a leafy forest populated by birds and water sources and is today a modern day "concrete jungle" in the center of the infamous northern district of Marseille. Separating image from text, “Là où la terre” paints a portrait of a contemporary neighborhood battered by perpetual violent transformation that echoes in the vulnerable voices of its habitants and the tension between presence and absence, broken down into patterns; plants, animals, humans. 



Jeff Silva is an American filmmaker, photographer and ethnographer, originally from Boston, whose work has been exhibited at festivals internationally.
