The Hotel Management School of Avignon at the Festival

Students of the CCIV in Avignon

Students of the CCIV in Avignon

Within the framework of "High School Students and Cinema Apprentices", pupils pursuing technical and professional degrees at the Hotel Mangement School of Avignon were able to participate at the Festival de Cannes.

An exceptional film adventure - in the opinion of all - whose grand finale was being on the red carpet on the evening of May, 14th for the Official Competition to attend the film by Andrea Arnold, Fish Tank. A work which gave rise to lively reactions and debates among the students…
"A hard but current dialogue" (Alexandre)
"Good images despite the violence" (Lauriane)
"I can identify with this teenager as I also often wear a jogging suit." (Ludivine)
"I didn't like this film because of the main character who resembles us too closely. He leaves at the end, knowing that difficulty awaits him." (Audrey)
"I really liked the filmscript, and when I see how other young people live, I understand how privileged I am." (Marine)

The students were lucky because the following day, in "Un Certain Regard", the screening of Precious by Lee Daniels led to go on more critical reflections. This film offered convergent points, as regards its contents, with Fish Tank, revealing as well both the conflicting and extremely violent (words, bodies and morals…) relationships between the youngsters and their parents. Obviously a sensitive subject for teens on the march in the school of life who played, for the space of an instant, the game of "glitter", while keeping both feet squarely on the ground. This last film, Precious, was moreover favourably received by the vast majority who cried a lot (a sometimes necessary catharsis…) during the projection. A terribly human film but not devoid of a glimmer of hope.

Many thanks to the PACA region, the Festival and Cinémas du Sud, the co-ordinating body of the operation.
As tutor for the School and professor of French and philosophy, I was delighted to carry out this exceptional project with my colleagues and see our students' eyes full of happiness…
