These are men and women born in between the two world wars. They bear the scars of their fight for sexual freedom in a country (France) that considered homosexuality as a mental illness until 1981.
They tell their own stories with a disarming, touching and even poignant openness, humour and truthfulness.
“Sébastien Lifshitz creates a superb portrayal. (…) Pictures, family movies and a few archival documents illustrate the memories (…)… the use of music enables to gather momentum in the empathy it sets up as well as to transform the witnesses into real heroes” (Nicolas Gilson)
The documentary goes beyond the homosexuality topic to speak of love, sexuality, freedom and search of one’s identity in the universal sense.
“…Les Invisibles is not only a deeply moving testimony about a community stifled and crushed by a standardized society, but it is also a real film, accomplished in its aesthetics being an integral part of cinema. Thus worth seeing” (Virgile Dumez)
