Continuing their successful Radio Live collaboration, Aurélie Charon and Amélie Bonnin join forces with cinematographer Mila Turajlić in order to initiate a new cycle in this unprecedented collective and international project, a long-term dialogue between engaged young people from all over the world.  In this iteration of Radio Live – La relève, Aurélie Charon and Amélie Bonnin present a portrait of Yannick Kamanzi from Kigali, Rwanda.

Since 2013, Radio Live has expanded the encounters and friendships woven by Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gilet over the course of their various radio documentary series for France Culture and France Inter. The resulting show takes the form of a dialogue, drawing upon sounds and images between youngsters from France and elsewhere, all of whom are full of questions about identity and political engagement. Radio Live – La relève picks up on this dialogue that was started between Ines, Yannick and Amir, none of whom are content with the state of the world as it is today. The team set off to film in their home cities—Sarajevo, Kigali and New Delhi— and return to the stage with a host of faces and landscapes which tell their own story and address many questions. This new generation takes center stage: each “historical” participant becomes the patron of a fifteen-year-old youth from their country. Using a mix of filmed images and spontaneous speech accompanied by the musician Emma Prat, Radio Live – La relève is written live and takes two different stage formats: individual portraits or three-way, interwoven vocal accounts.

Show performed in English. Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes.
