The Cinema Project

Initially, there is a return to primary contact with nature, to perceive, feel and think for oneself.

Then comes the creation of a common narrative.

Young people and children are made aware of and trained in the camera, sound and editing.

 The immense desire to make a film gives way to the rigor of the reflection, the exchange, the richness of the project to be carried out together.

Young people invite all generations and all sectors of civil life to participate, to contribute knowledge, know-how or concrete experiences.

 Children feel, think, work out, create. They plant, harvest, knead the leaven of the future, design and manufacture the tools of the transition and build the stories.

The common thread recounts the discussions, the tests, the locations, the hesitations and connects through an OFF voice. There is no interview asked. All those who speak up are at the same time helping out.

The images filmed by the young people themselves mingle with those of the making of, produced by the professional team, to clearly show the manufacturing process. The challenges of today's world are posed through the eyes of young people in all their diversity.

Brought together by the editing, the 332 young directors address their families, schools, institutions, illustrious witnesses, nations, to ask them to also sow the seeds of hope. 

The fact of associating art cinematographic, the transmedia and the creativity of the citizen youth can directly impact mentalities and behaviors.

Pierre Beccu's desire is to resolutely address the general public, well beyond converts and insiders, by highlighting the territories and their ability to meet challenges.

With the participation of…

Roukiata Ouedraogo, author and actress, says the voice OFF of the film. She participated in the filming in her native country, Burkina Faso, and with the Première ASSP 4 of the Louise Michel de Champigny high school. 

Pierre Rabhi, French farmer, writer and thinker, has followed the project from the start, through the children of the "children's farm" in Ardèche.

As a sponsor of the Akuo Foundation, partner of the project, the actor Jose garcia got involved with us in the launch of the project. He participated in the filming of the teaser and visited us on the set.




The groups of children concerned

There was no “casting”. We work with these groups of children because we have met the teachers or facilitators who supervise them and they were sensitive to our approach.

For some groups, exchanges with another territory or another country had already been established and we were able to extend the project's areas of action.


We worked with the territory of the Reunion Island on our last film released in cinemas in 2015 "Glances on our plates". It was on this occasion that we met the teachers of the classes of the primary school of Petite Ile and high schools. The students saw the film and then began to work and reflect on food and their territory. The teacher at the Saint-Paul agricultural high school told us about the regular exchanges that the establishment maintains with the CRFPA in Madagascar. He put us in contact with the founder of the Village of Joy, which educates and supports 300 children.

The exchange with the Burkina Faso was proposed by the City of Grenoble who put us in touch with the Tetraktys association, based in Grenoble, an NGO which works for the harmonious development of territories throughout the world and carries out several actions in this country. A chance for the children of Grenoble and those of Ouagadougou to be able to discuss with each other the development capacities of their respective territories.
