Screening room

Status: Completed

Director(s): Raymond Depardon

Short synopsis : After JOURNAL DE FRANCE (Cannes FF) legendary filmmaker-photographer Raymond Depardon delivers a unique picture of France today. Tender, moving, powerful – a film that will reveal the country’s intimate side.

Long synopsis : “I am going to drive through France, from the north to the south. I plan to stop in front of homes, places of business, municipal buildings. I am going to meet the people of France, to listen to what they have to say. I won’t ask questions. I’ll let them take their time, gather their thoughts and talk as they will. I will invite people I have only just met into a mobile studio to talk, without constraints, with absolute freedom.” -Raymond Depardon
