:THE GRADUATION / LE CONCOURS

France, 2016, 119 min

With The Graduation the director will delve into the daily life of the Parisian cinema school, la Fémis, where a specific Republican ideal of excellence is practiced and entry into which can be summed up as follows: "everyone’s equal, but only the best get in…" Through the admission process, the hard work all year and the graduation exams, The Graduation will establish a portrait of our relationship to excellence in the Art world and of one of the most prestigious art school in France.

Her best remembered films of the period are "La police" (1988) and "Scènes de ménage" in 1991, starring Miou-Miou. She then discovers the practice of 'direct cinema' with the Ateliers Varan and makes several documentaries such as "Les patients" (1989), Coûte que coûte (1995) and Récréations (1998), which garner multiple awards. Her first fiction feature length movie, Sinon, oui (1997), is presented at the Cannes Film Festival Directors' Fortnight in 1997. An atypical talent in the French movie world, Claire Simon has been trying for more than two decades to this day - ceaselessly and successfully - to capture the essence of reality.
