Between the 5th and 10th of September 1944, the city of Le Havre has been 85 % destroyed. 12000 tonnes of bombs had been dropped in 152 bombings, killing over 5000 people among civilians. « The Liberators » recalls this period and gives voice to the witnesses of this tragedy. Throughout this voice, the film leaves important place to the intimate dimension of the traumatic memories. The film isn’t only a question of bombing but also deals with living one’s life with memories of an event which sense is incomprehensible.
