Interview with Béatrice Pollet, the director of “And Yet We Were All Blind”, interviewer Maros Pulscak
"The best way to perceive the story was through factual chronological storytelling" - Beatrice Pollet
“And Yet We Were All Blind” tells the intimate story of Claire, a mother of two children, who leads a well-balanced life with her husband. When the police find a newborn near their house who is believed to be Claire’s, their lives are thrown into turmoil. Extensively documented and relying on the testimonies of various experts, Béatrice Pollet directs this judicial thriller with great finesse, without seeking to find a common explanation for this highly complex subject, but instead shedding light on another taboo with which the woman's body is confronted.
