BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON
In development. A film by Michaël Prazan
Directed by Michaël Prazan, whose outstanding historical and social documentaries have been broadcast on major French television channels (France 2, France 3, France 5, Arte), this project aims to film the day-to-day running of a high school in the Paris suburbs throughout the school year. For the director, who himself is a former teacher, the idea is to show how the educational institution is coping with and adapting to the profound changes that are currently transforming our society. To fully achieve this challenge, and thus avoid making a film that would simply reveal the surface of things, there is no other way than to spend a long period of time immersed in a school that is both special and representative, filming “life as it is”, on both the teachers’ and the students’ sides, without neglecting the connections with the establishment itself.
