In Réunion, in the Éperon district, the municipality undertook a vast resorption plan to reduce the amount of substandard housing. The house of my childhood is in danger of being destroyed. It had been granted to my grandparents by their employer, the director of Bourbon sugar mills, an industry vestige of the colonial past of our island. This place is a testimony to a family history and to my Indian, African and European ancestry, shared with many Réunionnais. I wish to make an intimate journey, encountering strata of living or buried memory in this place.
