Q&A with Séverine Enjolras
This film is nominated for the Excellence in Visual Anthropology Award (EVA).
One summertime, in Paris and its suburbs, two young female filmmakers attempt a remake of Chronicle of a Summer, fifty years after the cult film by Jean Rouch and Edgar Morin was screened. Through their protagonists, who mingle questions covering the intimate and the political, a portrait of French society mirroring that of the sixties emerges. Remake of a Summer plays with a new cinematographic method: the remake of documentaries, while preserving the originality of Rouch’s and Morin’s body of work.
