A Film by Caroline D'hondt

- Producer -

Synopsis
"Correspondances" is a quest, a journey that is based on the meetings between men and women, in the depths of the subways of two cities : Mexico D.F. and Brussels. The film concentrates on elderly people, on their place in society, their dreams, their worries. For although old age is looked upon as a serious illness that must be combated, that is hidden, or ignored, the fact remains that elderly people have many things to pass on to us : they are our roots, our memory. Gradually blurring the borders, we go from one subway to the other, from one person to another. Despite the distances that separate people, they are the same everywhere. The cycles of life are the same all over the world : we are born, we grow old, then we die. It is the codes that are different.
