​PRODUCTION COMPANY PROFILE

With "Bagarres", I want to pay tribute to mothers like Gloria, to their tenacity in this world where taking care of autistic children remains an everyday struggle, given the inadequacy of &nbsp;institutions.
“Bagarre” is about those who are invisible, the ones society rejects. I wanted a film that moves towards enlightenment, encourages breaking down barriers and - through the meeting of Gloria and Ajar - towards sorority, as an invitation from society to the possibility of not being perfectly "normal".

DIRECTOR'S NOTE

SYNOPSIS

Gloria is raising her autistic son Antoine (15 years old) alone. She strives to make her son's life as 'normal' as possible.&nbsp;During the weekly school swimming class, Antoine almost drowns Lucie (13 years old). This incident affects not only Gloria's life but also that of Ajar, Lucie's mother. Despite their hostile feelings, Gloria and Ajar must find a way to get along. As an unexpected friendship develops between them, each mother will experience a new dimension of what it means to be a parent.
