Interview with Alexandra, Producer
How did you come to work with Cœur de Gazelles?
“I met Marina at the closing ceremonies of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles 2018, to which I had been invited by Virginie Atlan. We talked about the association and I immediately understood the colossal scale of the work accomplished by the team. I wanted to do something right away, to help in my way, with my skills. I had some idea of what I would find on location, but I wasn’t anticipating the scale of the need that exists. I was marked by the waiting lines, and I am really impressed by the work of the volunteers.
You get a real sense of fraternity, knowledge and sharing.
I am fascinated by their solidarity and desire to surpass themselves. The film will allow me to tell their stories, to transcribe the tremendous actions of the association.
I was extremely touched by the expressions, especially those of the children, which are deeply moving.”
