Film Projection

La sociologue et l'ourson

Synopsis:  From September 2012 to May 2013, France is inflamed in the dispute over the Marriage Equality Law. Throughout these nine months of legislative gestation, sociologist Irène Théry recounts the stakes of the debate to her son. From these stories comes the birth of the cinema of teddy bears, toys, pieces of cardboard. An intimate portrait and national drama, this film allows us to rediscover what we all thought we perfectly knew: family.
