Inspired by material records of the early colonial ‘scientific expeditions’ and ‘taming campaigns’ led by the French colonizers in North Africa, Le Fort de Fous follows a community of young nomads and wanderers as they form an imagined utopian society in response to imperialist rule.

Re-enactments, improvisations, and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island, and the Prosfygika community in Athens reflect on how memories can be used to combat displacement and the inaccurate re-appropriation of history.
