The Workshop presented by FilmBath.
Laurent Cantet has built a reputation as one of France’s leading contemporary directors with films including Time Out, Human Resources and 2008 Palme d’Or winner The Class. His latest is intriguing – a drama, but structured like a thriller, set in La Ciotat: a blue-collar town reeling from the closure of its shipyard. A successful author (Marina Foïs) is hosting a summer writing workshop, though the group’s dynamic is unsettled by Antoine – by far the angriest but also the most fiercely creative of the group. A ‘sly, supple and repeatedly surprising collision of literary, moral and political lines of debate’ – Variety.
