LA SOCIOLOGUE ET L'OURSON
Directed by Etienne Chaillou and Mathias Théry, 2016, France – 78 min – Documentary - In French with English subtitles
Starring Irène Théry, Mathias Théry, Frigide Barjot, François Hollande
In partnership with Austin Gay and Lesbian International Film Festival (http://agliff.org/)
From September 2012 to May 2013, France gets passionate about the bill allowing same-sex marriage; in French, “le marriage pour tous”. During these 9 months, the sociologist and French government adviser Irène Théry, recounts to her son the stakes of this debate. From these recordings, the directors invent a teddy bear cinema, made of toys and stuffed animals.
It’s not every day that we can learn about the evolution of the family and changing social mores from a witty, articulate, stuffed bear. Intimate portrait and national saga, this film makes us rediscover what we all thought we knew perfectly: Family.
