Forgery and archives use

New media

History with a capital H has often bring to light flamboyant characters who embody it.
But, quietly, another story is going around, the one of little people, of supporting roles lost in space-time of history without the prefix “Hi”.
This is the one that will restore the short-com Faux et usage d’archives : when the fiction is interfering to historical account. In our serie, twelve anonymous becomes protagonists who make us live, in a sensitive and roundabout way, small mythologies that, put end-to-end, makes a France history, on a background of archival footage. Fates that one day have collided with the great narrative frame which is history, …our history… because without the small stories, there would be no History.
