We Did It On a Song
(Chante ton bac d'abord)

  •   David André
  •   France


Called “Glee meets To Be and To Have,” this spirited documentary-musical-hybrid observes five high school seniors from a post-industrial French coastal town as they prepare for their futures. While the teens brace for adulthood during a period of economic crisis, the film intersperses original song-and-dance numbers written and performed by the kids themselves. With heart and charm, We Did It On A Song gives soaring voice to a young generation’s hopes and hardships.

French with subtitles.


Co-presented by Cultural Service at the Consulate General of France in Chicago
