Latifa, le coeur au combat / Latifa: A Fighting Heart

by Olivier Peyon, Cyril Brody Border Lines

In 2012, Latifa Ibn Ziaten lost her son during the terrorist attack in Toulouse. Since then, the Muslim woman with Moroccan roots has travelled across France as a peace activist seeking conversation with the neglected youth of the banlieues. Driven by the desire to prevent further attacks, she embraces all forms of hatred with love and tolerance, and encourages adolescents to believe in themselves and their opportunities, despite all the difficulties they face. LATIFA, LE COEUR AU COMBAT is the touching portrait of an incredibly strong woman who has turned her grief into activism. Over the course of a year we follow her on her mission, and are confronted with the French youth and the ever-accompanying issues of identity, integration, racism and Islam.
