Un film dramatique + Introduction

Un film dramatique, dir. Éric Baudelaire, France 2019, 114 min., French with English subtitles

A powerful exercise in collectivity, Un film dramatique is co-directed by French filmmaker Éric Baudelaire alongside a class of 20 middle schoolers. The film takes shape over a period of four years, during which time Baudelaire collaborated with students at the Dora Maar school in Paris’ Saint-Denis commune. Compiling individual and communally made film footage, Un film dramatique features the students’ insights on their young lives as they offer personal reflections and join in shared discussions about politics, identity, cooperation and belonging. The ensemble examines what cinema is, resisting any concepts such as master and student while learning becomes performative, in the making, activity.

The screening is preceded by an introduction by director Éric Baudelaire. It is part of 3+3: Éric Baudelaire, a project presenting three films by the French filmmaker, and three films of his choice.
