Every year, hundreds of French students go through the agrégation de philosophie, a national philosophy contest to become a philosophy teacher. Through the story of Louis, Cherihene, Lyess and Stefanos, 4 students from radically different social backgrounds, the film dives into the medieval institution of La Sorbonne and the core of French style, old-school elitism.
As giant fortunes of the tech industry have moved to the Bay Area, pushing out its most vulnerable communities, the police kills Black, Brown and homeless people with complete impunity. In Oakland and SF, a wave of Black-led resistance and power, sustained by a long tradition of self-determination, is emerging. Stemming from street protests and diving deeper, this film focuses on women engaged in a day to day struggle to uplift their community and weaves their perspectives and experiences on revolution, self-determination and liberation.
