Making a film | Thinking collective action 

What do young people think of the model of society they inherit? What changes do they think are necessary? “Que faire ?” encourages young students to ask themselves about what can be the collective today. At a time when profound upheavals are taking place in our societies thus questioning their foundations: how can we become actors in a collective history? How can we manage to move the lines together? Based on a reflection on images and with the support of an artist, young students identify a subject that concerns them, and that will be the starting point for the film they will make together. During the workshops, everyone has the opportunity to express themselves, to discover new abilities and to use their skills to develop collective action. Each film made is put into perspective with the words of researchers, local actors, town planners, journalists and sociologists during a preview screening.

In 2020, nearly 400 young students from 18 establishments and facilities have participated in the program:
