BIGGER THAN US

A generation is rising to repair the world, live stronger. A film project (and more) by Flore Vasseur, writer and director

  • Come and meet our leading BIGGER THAN US character Melati Wijsen on Oct 16th in Paris

    To you, our most faithful supporters, who have followed us since the beginning of our BIGGER THAN US adventure: join us and MELATI WIJSEN in Paris for an exceptional filming debrief.

    It’s been six months already that we are touring the world. Melati is the first witness, the teller of our discoveries. At 18-years old, she has been fighting for the past six years to ban plastic bags in her island Bali. She thought she had seen it all: societies’ indifference, systems’ resistance, never ending legal battle, ambiguous political promises… But we’ve taken her to many new frontlines !

    On October 16th, she will share her version of our BIGGER THAN US story in the making. Seeing it through her eyes will be precious for everyone, and especially for us, who have embarked on this adventure with her. Melati is not only a bearing witness, she is an ambassador of her generation. Her maturity and energy will leave no one indifferent. She will share her experience, dreams, doubts and encounters. As well as the contradictions we are all struggling with.

    Join us at 7:30pm at the CRI in Paris, 8 bis Rue Charles V, 75004.

    As always, this event is free and open to all (thanks to you dear crowdfunders). Just secure your seat here: [email protected]

  • Invitation to our next filming debrief in Paris on September 5th

    Dear contributors,

    We are in the middle of summer and also of our journey. Half of the filming ready to be played with in the editing suite. Half of our characters are still to be met !


    We took some time out this summer, to catch our breath and realize how extraordinary this BIGGER THAN US filming was. How lucky we were. And the responsibility that comes with it.

    We are now heading for Greece and then Brazil, two countries in the verge of collapse, two paradises about to be lost. War on migrants, minorities, solidarity. War on freedom of speech and of course, on nature, the common thread… These are the realities that our next characters, Mary and Rene, have decided to confront. They will be our guides. They are everyday heroes. Magical individuals. Hope.

    Come to our next filming debrief in Paris on September 5th so we will tell it all. Our event will be at 22 bis rue des Taillandiers, Paris 11th arrondissement, at LE TANK. Make sure you drop us an email do reserve your seat at [email protected] This is free and open to all, thanks to your support.

    Have a wonderful summer and see you in september,

    Flore and the BIGGER THAN US team.

  • REMINDER : Colorado’s filming debriefing on Thursday at La Bascule in Pontivy (in the morning) and at the CRI in Paris (at night) !

    A few weeks ago, we had our second filming debriefing, on Malawi and the awesome work and drive of Memory Banda, 22. The idea ? Share with you, honest and raw, what we just saw, understood, or not ; the epiphany and our doubts.
    And get your reactions, suggestions. Learn. 


    @Tess Barthes 


    Let’s meet up again on Thursday for the debriefing of our filming in Colorado, what we saw it all sinking America and high tech hippies, progressive bubble and the war on minorities.


    Two sessions, free and open to all : 
    - In the morning in Pontivy, at La Bascule
    - At night, at 7pm, at the CRI in Paris, 8 bis Rue Charles V, 75004. And always, thanks to you, open and free. You just have to register here [email protected] .


    See you very soon !

  • Invitation to our next filming debrief in Paris on July 19

    Dear friends,

    We are just back from our filming trip in Colorado where we tried to capture the ideas, drive and spirit of multi-talented Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 19, hip hop artist, climate activist (he started at the age of… 6) and indigenous rights defender.  

    @taylor_whatsnext

    The decor was brutal (education, environment, justice, democracy... to us, Colorado was 360 decay, a war on nature, on the poor, on minorities. In plain sight.) But our characters, their spirit, are pure light and strong. This is the story we decide to hold on to, Earth Guardians (the young activists collective) workshops, Xiuhtezcatl concerts, a stunning indigenous ceremony. Rituals and moments of friendship, the joy and the price to pay to have one’s voice heard. Words, wisdom and beauty, that of our characters Xiutezcatl and Melati will save us.

    Come to our next filming debrief in Paris on July 18th at 7 PM at C.R.I, 8 bis Rue Charles V, 75004 Paris.
    As always and thanks to you, this is open and free to all. Make sure you book your seat here: [email protected]

    See you there,

    Flore and the BIGGER THAN US crew
