The sociologist and the bear cub

by Etienne Chaillou & Mathias Théry

Summary

From September 2012 to May 2013, France gets passionate about the bill allowing marriage for all.
During these 9 months, the sociologist Irène Théry recounts to her son on the phone the stakes of this debate. From these recordings, the directors invent a teddy bear cinema, made of toys and pieces of cardboard.

Intimate portrait and national saga, this film makes us rediscover what we all thought we knew perfectly: family.
