128 weeks at Dora Maar Junior High School

 

Atelier de travail
Workshop
128 weeks at Dora Marr Junior High School
with Eric Baudelaire and school’s students

 

In autumn 2015, filmmaker and visual artist Éric Baudelaire was invited to conceive of a film about the Dora Maar junior high school, a new institution that had just been built in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis. He decided to sketch the portrait of a group of students over the duration of four years. Gradually, the subject of this ongoing film became the object of its own making and the schoolchildren became its authors. 128 Semaines au collège Dora Maar proposes an X-ray of France in-the-making, pluralistic and aware of the community-based rifts shaping the way people coexist. The film involves a “selfie” and “Youtube” generation exploring its representation in front of the camera, in a form of a daily audio-visual amateur practice.

Screening of three excerpts of the ongoing feature-length documentary, 128 Semaines au collège Dora Maar, by Eric Baudelaire.

> Followed by a discussion with the filmmaker and Rasha Salti, head of ARTE’s La Lucarne programming, and with the school students.
