  • Parcours de dissidents

    2006. France. Written and directed by Euzhan Palcy. Narrated by Gérard Depardieu. Through interviews with the men and women of the resistance movement in Martinique and Guadeloupe during World War II, Palcy recounts the story of a forgotten generation of West Indian patriots. Escaping the collaborationist government of the islands, they traveled in makeshift boats to the British Isles, trained in the United States, and fought as a battalion in North Africa. Thanks in part to the documentary’s uncovering of this previously untold story, in 2009 French President Nicolas Sarkozy bestowed the Legion of Honor upon the "dissidents." 88 min.
