La ruse et la liberté


A journey through Ultras arab speaking groups in the cities of Asia, mediterranean and atlantic Africa. A distant proximity with young people sharing the Ultras way of life: from the stadium to the life in the «polis». Collecting photos, videos, objects. An interdisciplinary documentary work: art and research, history and sociology with writer Sébastien Louis. Football fans have been a focus of studies for more than thirty years. However, there is very little research dedicated to Ultras culture and in general the public violent behaviour of the spectators always occupy a central place. Our aim is to tell about the political rule, especially in Arab world, of those collectives of organised young people.
