Le Concours

Claire Simon

France | 2017 | 1h59

Documentaire

C'est le jour du concours. Les aspirants cinéastes franchissent le lourd portail de la grande école pour la première, et peut-être, la dernière fois. Tous les espoirs sont permis, toutes les angoisses aussi. Les jeunes gens rêvent et doutent. Les jurés s'interrogent et cherchent leurs héritiers. De l'arrivée des candidats aux délibérations des jurés, le film explore la confrontation entre deux générations et le difficile parcours de sélection qu'organisent nos sociétés contemporaines.
