La Lutte Du Foyer Albert Thomas


Le 22 décembre 2016, le tribunal de grande instance de Tours (Indre et Loire) a ordonné la liquidation judiciaire d'un foyer d'hébergement avec un ordre brutal de fermeture pour le 26 décembre.

Quid des 36 hommes hébergés ici ? Que vont devenir ces personnes relevant du droit commun (SDF), demandeurs d’asile, réfugiés sous protection internationale…? Pourquoi le problème n’a-t’-il pas été anticipé ? Pourquoi fermer brutalement un foyer, récemment rénové et mis aux normes, qui a une capacité d’hébergement de 36 personnes, alors que des gens dorment actuellement dehors, au plus dur de l’hiver ? Un comité de soutien se constitue aussitôt, composé des ex-salariés, des migrants hébergés et de citoyens qui vont engager un bras de fer avec la Mairie de Tours et la Préfecture d’Indre et Loire pour que les personnes victimes de cette décision soient traitées dignement dans cette période chaotique. Trois mois de tournage en immersion au foyer Albert Thomas à Tours. Un microcosme au coeur duquel nous pouvons observer bien des enjeux qui bousculent aujourd’hui notre société.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are unavailable for free. With just 29 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page. 

You're also welcome and encouraged to submit videos directly to our library. Just click +Add Video at the top of the site and paste the video URL to get started. We share our favorite submissions with our fans on social media and feature them more prominently on the site.
