Traces of Empires


This series presents ten overseas territories connected with the old colonial empires that shaped the world through history: Portuguese, Spanish, British and French. What has become of these territories? What remains of the presence of the occupiers or administrations of old? To what extent are they still marked by their colonial history? In what ways do they contribute to the influence of the western countries and serve their geopolitical ambitions, even today?

With portraits of native people, immigrants and metropolitans, each film illustrates the evolution of these fragments of the ''dust of empires'' through the years.
