Nuit des idées 2024 – Joute Oratoire : Documentary preceded by a student debate in French

The Alliance Française de Glasgow is pleased to announce its participation in La Nuit des idées by screening the documentary "En Nous" in our premises, in collaboration with the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde.

This screening will be preceded by a debate between two teams of students from the University of Glasgow and the University of Strathclyde . A jury will select the winning team on the basis of language level and arguments.

About "En Nous" by Régis Sauder (99 minutes) :

The paths of Abou, Morgane, Laura, Cadiatou, Jacques, and Armelle have crossed one of Emmanuelle’s ten years ago. She was their French teacher at a high school in Marseille’s working-class neighbourhood. Together they took part in a film in which, while analyzing the classic text, they expressed their hopes, dreams, and fears. In En nous, the director re-connects with the protagonists and reports back, ten years later, on the paths they have taken in today’s society. Memories blend with stories of their lives and the daily obstacles they are obliged to overcome whilst trying not to lose hope, and the sentence of The Princess of Cleves rings poignantly true: «I know nothing can be more difficult than what I undertake.»
