Synopsis

We will never be made of the wood of victories, but of the wood of struggle. Our Defeats draws a portrait of our relationship to politics, thanks to a game of reinterpretation by high school students of excerpts from post-68 cinema, combined with interviews with these young actors. How do they apprehend the world in which they grow up and, above all, would they like to change it, to destroy it or to build a new one?
