Jean-Gabriel Périot

IndieLisboa 2022 •

France, Documentary, 2021, 84′

A loose adaptation of the eponymous book by Didier Eribon, Jean-Gabriel Périot draws on archival wealth to tell a story — collective and intimate, political and personal — of the French working class since the 1950s. The testimonies of workers, men and women, shape a story that is not always at your fingertips.
