WATCH THE TRAILER!
For Angèle (director Judith Davis), an idealistic urban planner, everything is a source of outrage. She comes from a family of activists, but her sister has since chosen to go into business, while her mother (Mireille Perrier), once a famous urban planner herself, has long abandoned not only her political convictions, but also her husband and daughters, to settle down, alone, in the countryside. Only her father, whom she moves in with after being fired, has remained faithful to Angèle’s ideals.
Angry, determined, impulsive, sometimes a little close-minded, but always passionate, Angèle applies as much effort into trying to change the world as she does into fleeing meaningful relationships. That may change, however, when she meets elementary school teacher Saïd (Malik Zidi, Made in France – SFFF 2016, Rebellion – SFFF 2012).
After finding out that things are not always the way she chooses to see them, Angèle finally decides to pay a visit to her estranged mother to seek out the answer to her question: what happened to the revolution and its hopes to build a better world?
Whatever Happened to the Revolution is based on Judith David’s play, created with her theater company “L’Avantage du Doute,” which she has translated into a playful and passionate feature directorial debut.
