So Far, So Good goes to meet the Hachmi family, accompanying them in their bureaucratic journey to seek asylum in Belgium. The context in which this work takes place coincides with the first period of confinement decreed by Belgium.

Using the archive images of the family, recovered from broken smartphones, Prignot and Alvarez cross two discourses: that of the possible meeting on the one hand, delivered by a thread of everyday images, accumulated and accompanied by the comments of the woman telling her memories; and on the other hand, the discourse of non-meeting, that of the State, vertical, disembodied, made readable by the reproduction of extracts from interviews and the response of the General Commissioner for Refugees and Stateless Persons.
