Revivir la primavera (Revivre le printemps)

Irina Warner

A group of students who were involved in the squatting at the university campus in Marseille (France), as part of the fight against the privatization of public education in the spring of 2018, meet a group of actors in a theater. Together they build a memory of the mobilization against the law that risks restricting access to university for future generations of students.

How to film and what to say about a student movement, some time after its failure? The director proposes various exercises of recreation and staging, inspired by the practice of the Theater of the Oppressed, which give prominence to the dialogue between the participants in this experiment, but also between the different registers of the staging. Without denying the romanticism with which the students embark on the struggle, nor the doubts that assail them, the documentary reflects on what gives us the energy to fight, but also on the traces that mobilization leaves in each of us.
