Dir. Éric Baudelaire. France, 2019, 114 mins. In French with English subtitles. Filmed over the course of four years, Un Film dramatique is a lively documentary and collaboration between renowned artist-filmmaker Éric Baudelaire and a group of 21 middle-schoolers at Dora Maar Middle School—located on the outskirts of Paris—who playfully document their daily lives and experiment with cameras. Using an innovative approach to education and filmmaking, Baudelaire (Letters to Max) sparks important conversations following the 2015 terrorist attack in Paris and debates around the approaching elections and immigration regulations. Through a child’s lens, this film offers insights into the realities of our current sociopolitical moment. A 2019 New York Film Festival and 2019 Toronto International Film Festival official selection. A Cinema Guild Release. View trailer.
