Letters from the phantom train (85 mn)

June 1944 : In the midst of the Liberation, 800 deportees were transported from French camps to Germany. Due to the Allies’ bombing and Resistants’ attacks, the railway was in such bad shape that the journey across France took 57 days. The deportees even had to walk at some occasions and were seen by several eye witnesses. The journey ended in Dachau and more than half of the deportees never came back.
This story is unique, because of the incredibly long voyage that made many people witness the deportations towards German camps, usually made « invisible ». The film, based on the eye witnesses’ evidence and on the deportees’ own letters, ask us, « What would we have done in a similar situation today ? ».

In the foosteps of Saint-Thomas

In South India, and particularly in Kerala, the origins of the christian communities date back to the evangelisation by the apostle Thomas, who, according to tradition, landed on the Malabar coast in 52 A.D.
Later, those communities were linked to the Church of the East ( also called the Nestorian church, and later the Chaldean church). Having converted to the roman catholicism , they rebelled; from this time on, they split off into a number of groups: they divided into a roman catholic group and another group linked with the Syrian orthodox Church having Antiocha as the patriarchal headquarters.
