Deeply touched by the documentary film made by Edgar Morin and Jean Rouch in 1960, “Chronique d’un été”, the first French experiment in cinema vérité, Justine Lequette and the actors take up the film’s key questions, directed at passers-by, students, workers, employees and immigrants, whose interviews were sometimes continued in a more intimate setting. These questions, about happiness, life, work, utopias are now asked by them in a society which, fifty-eight years down the line, has stayed the same and, at the same time, has changed a great deal.
Putting these two periods into perspective, they also draw on documentary sequences by Pierre Carles, extracts from plays by Alexandra Badea and improvisations by the actors to focus on the meaning of our existence, in an aesthetic that, despite being inspired by real life situations, always develops a point of view and a playful dimension.
