Description 1 online resource (68 min.)
Summary Artist Paul Harfleet's family had always accepted his sexuality, but it was a different story outside the home. Like many young gay people, he regularly faced abuse. So he developed an artistic work, the Pansy Project, to challenge homophobia and promote respect and tolerance. For 10 years, Harfleet has been travelling the world, meeting people and planting pansies at the site of homophobia. A single pansy to provoke consciousness, to encourage reflection, to prompt discussion in the public place. A poetic plant for a symbolic commemorative gesture. We follow Harfleet as he brings his Pansy Project to France for the first time. From Paris to Marseille, via Lille, Strasbourg and Avignon, Harfleet finds his own way with his flowers, goes searching for testimonies and exposes the prejudices and discrimination gay people in Europe still face
