In the wake of American presidential elections, we are overwhelmed by images of candidates, which remind us the great American Values. Life, Liberty, Pursuit of Happiness remain watchwords more than two hundred years after the ratification of the first amendments. But the great myth that nourishes the main speech hides many other stories of the United States and the fight of its citizens for their rights, never completely acknowledged. In the current political French context, with the State of Emergency (which resonates with the American Patriot Act), and the protests against the Labor Law and the world it embodies, convoking the vision of filmmakers is an absolute necessity. Beyond the great myth, the films we are screening are stories, as political in the form as in the meaning, that reflect and create American society.
