CINEMA RESIDENCY WITH ÉTIENNE LABROUE
École primaire publique Jules Ferry - Suippes

Lycée Pierre Bayen – Châlons-en-champagne
“Les Parapluies de Châlons” is a short film presented as a game of exquisite corpse, inspired by Jacques Demi’s film “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg”. The chronological screenplay (in three parts) was written during the Cinema Residency by students in year six at Jules Ferry primary school in Suippes, year ten at Louis Pasteur secondary school in Suippes, and year 12 at Pierre Bayen sixth form college in Châlons. The film tells the poetic, absurd and chaotic story of a couple of students through their school years.
A wonderful experience for all those involved.
