The Graduation

In “The Graduation” director Claire Simon delves into the daily life at the Parisian cinema school, la Fémis, where a specific Republican ideal of excellence is practiced. Entry into the school can be summed up  as: “everyone’s equal, but only the best get in…” Through an examination of the admission process, the hard work that takes place throughout the year and the exams leading up to graduation, we establish a portrait of our relationship with excellence within the art world.
