“Why hate us, we the poor?”

Why is the world without love ?


After breaks the taboo on Jews, on Blacks and the Arabs during the first season, the second season of Why we hate ?, hard-hitting documentary series in three parts, is now to ingrained prejudices against women, homosexuals and the poor. Haunted by the memory of a sexual assault and derogatory remark to a colleague, actress Juliette Arnaud is interested in the history of misogyny in order to understand why it still persists. Out of the closet for twenty years, the man of cinema Gurwann Tran Van Gie is facing his best friend and his mother, who had reacted very badly at the time. Ex-socialist deputy Michel Pouzol remembers with great emotion the time he lived with his wife and their three children in a cottage. Three documentaries, which mix with the cage as they remind us that there are still many battles to wage against the ignorance and narrow-mindedness.

Why we hate-they, the women ?
Why hate us, we the poor ?
Why we hate-they, we homosexuals ?

Written and directed by Joannie Lafrenière, the warm and luminous documentary Snowbirds is interested in people of old age who has chosen to spend six months per year in Miami. And this, even if many of them barely speak English ! Putting it nicely the emphasis on the kitsch of the place, the documentary develops a complicity footprint of respect and empathy with each of the stakeholders, including the irresistible Agatha, dainty widow octogenarian who still dream to meet a man own on him.
