Half of one piece in a triptych on the housing projects (or cités) in and around Toulouse, France. These groupings of large housing blocks were constructed in the decades following WWII on the communist model: egalitarian, communal constructions that allowed the government to quickly raze the slums that sprang up after the war. These short documentaries focus on the perspective of the inhabitants in neighborhoods that are plagued by unemployment, wealth disparities compared with other parts of the city, and - according to the right-wing government - increasing crime and insecurity due to the large population of foreigners. Empalot is made up of 86% public housing, has 36% unemployment, and a population of 13% foreign and 42% low income. Subject: Islam at Empalot.
