    Paris in the year 2030, the city is deserted. A handful of nomads stranded here meets up via a Craigslist ad and tries to create a common space through language. They create a self-organised school (The Simili-School) in which they study the slang of the teenagers from the suburbs (Argot des Jeunes de la Cite) and by doing so also become closer as a group. “The text” however, takes on a life of its own – and starts to unsettle their newly established “home”.

    Simili- relates different (post-)migrant realities to each other and deals with questions of how one can appropriate cultural and linguistic identity. It is a semi-fictional film that was realized in an open collaboration with four non-professional actors and a group of teenagers who participated in the scriptwriting process.
