In March 2005, 4 run-down buildings were demolished at 52-58 rue Myrha as part of a vast programme to rehabilitate the Goutte d'Or district in north Paris. One year later, work started to rebuild 21 social housing flats on the same site.
"Permis de Construire" uses photos, off-screen commentaries, and sound effects to capture the renovation process and to explore the issues surrounding it.
