This presentation will explain how films contribute to a reconstruction of a community, contingent on their enonciative site and their recipients. The “profile” of the documentary filmmakers
is a key element of the system, as well as the remediation of the speech; the visit of the places
of sad memories; the new space of living-together; and finally the relationship between each images made with those missing, those of the massacre.
