The Seeds We Sow

OT: Les Graines que l’on sème

Nathan Nicholovitch // France, 2020
Fiction Feature // FF2020



Faces full of sadness, faces full of anger. A very topical political drama. “Macron demission” – “Macron, resign”. Two words that change the world. Chiara sprays them at her school. A protest by a young woman against the president of her country. No more, no less. Yet a few hours later Chiara is dead in a police cell. A family, a class of children, a school and a nation are traumatised. Is this the reaction of a democracy to criticism? Nathan Nicholovitch’s film is based on real cases and focusses on the aftermath. In the conversations of bereaved relatives and friends, he sensitively observes how things start to change – from incomprehension to anger.


NATHAN NICHOLOVITCH (*1976) studied applied arts and art history and in 1999 founded the Paris film collective »Les Films aux dos tournés«. The Seeds We Sow is his third full-length film. It was made in collaboration with schoolchildren at a secondary school in Ivry-sur-Seine.
