Sheremetiev - Thylacine
Video clip

This French electro musician revisits an unknown piece by Alexander Sheremetiev, composer of Orthodox music. In the video clip, the beauty of the music overlaps with the aesthetic beauty of the image. We observe an orchestra plunged underwater, slowly rising to the surface, towards the light.

Coup de coeur of the interns' team
Instragram account - Story

Walled-In is a narrative experience broadcasted on Instagram. Between an historical documentary and  a fiction, it mixes archives (photographic, video and sound) and illustrations. A story that plunges us into the heart of 1960s Berlin, among the men and women who tried to escape the Wall of Shame.
Find the Alliance Française on Instagram as well, we have a lot of resources for French learners!

Expression of the week 

"Ne pas être sorti de l'auberge" 
To not be out of woods

Literally, this expression means "not to be out of the hostel". People use it to say that they are not done with difficulties or troubles. It comes from prisoners language, in which "auberge" means prison. Once a prisoner is inside an auberge, he will have a hard time getting out of it!
