Description


A study of how French social documentary engages our precarious world.
 
An exploration of turn-of-the-century French documentary cinema, Precarious Sociality explores how filmmakers engage and resist the ways finance capitalism has violently reshaped reality since the late 1990s. Audrey Evrard traces the dissolution of twentieth-century class narratives into a more complete recognition of difference empowering new solidarity grounded in economic, social, and ecological precariousness. Placing well-known auteurs side by side with less canonical filmmakers, Precarious Sociality reaffirms the enduring power of long-form documentaries in a political landscape reshaped by social media clips.
