This week, Banlieue Project heads to the Paris suburb of Evry, where the Parc aux Lièvres housing project is set to be demolished. Using decades worth of archives plus virtual reality, a multi-generational coalition of its inhabitants pay tribute to the neighbourhood. Our team went to meet them.

Banlieue Project is a platform for residents of France's disadvantaged suburbs to tell their own stories. We provide the camera and they film their experiences to break down clichés about the French "banlieues".
