Un Film Dramatique | Cape Cinema

Includes an exclusive Q&A with one of the students from the film, Fatimata Sarr.

Commissioned as a dedicated artwork for the newly constructed Dora Maar middle school on the outskirts of Paris, Un Film Dramatique is a lively portrait of the first class to attend the school, filmed over the course of four years. The group of 22 middle schoolers discuss the drama of their daily lives and experiment with cameras and equipment. They are the film's subjects, and also its makers.

With a refreshingly uninhibited approach, Baudelaire (Letters to Max, The Anabasis of May...) offers a new perspective on the realities of our current socio-political moment that is both playful and purposeful. As the students debate the approaching elections and the immigration crisis, they also seek to answer a key political question--what are we doing here together?
