12/17/21: Seeds of hope for the students of Annecy
As part of the previews of SEEDS OF HOPE, an entire day was organized on December 17 at the four Art house galleries in the city of Annecy.
The municipality had decided to offer 600 places to school districts, primary and secondary schools. The device was carried by Guillaume Tatu, Deputy Mayor for Youth and Student Life.
Disturbed by the resurgence of COVID cases, the operation still allowed 300 students to discover the film and to discuss with Pierre Beccu at the end of the sessions. The director appreciated the quantity and the quality of the interventions of the pupils.
Obviously, SEEDS OF HOPE allows people to speak out, because the young people who film and who are filmed look like everyone else. The confidence of the children protagonists reflects on the spectator in the room, who immediately feels capable of being the author and actor of his own future.

The City of Annecy has decided to postpone the missing 300 students over the next few months. The cinemas have registered the film in their famous festival for young audiences, Cinémino, which will be held from February 6 to March 13.
Without being concerned at the outset by the shooting, many actors in the field, from Annecy and the surrounding area, teachers, elected officials, associative activists, entrepreneurs or ordinary citizens decided to show the film to young people in order to spread the power to act on their own territory!
