Directed by Nicolas Philibert
One of France’s pre-eminent documentarians, Nicolas Philibert is best known to American filmgoers for TO BE AND TO HAVE (2002), his portrait of a year in the life of a small rural school. WHO KNOWS?, rarely seen in this country, is set in a military hut where, one winter’s night, a group of fifteen students at the Strasbourg National Theatre assemble to fine-tune a show on that city that they developed at the bidding of the director. Over the course of many hours, they talk, argue, sing, teeter on the brink of exhaustion. Philibert establishes a ludic interzone between structure and improvisation, depicts the young people’s commitment to sustaining a delicate creative ecology, and fashions a characteristic essay in ruminative joy.
Nicolas Philibert will be present for a post-screening discussion.
