15th annual International Screenings Program Presents We Did It On A Song

The 15th annual Chicago International Screenings Program, a free weekly film series that celebrates the richness and diversity of international and independent filmmaking, is screening We Did It On A Song (Chante ton bac d'abord) ​in partnership with the Cultural Services at the Consulate General of France in Chicago. 

We did it on a Song
Directed by David André , 2013, 82 mn

Called “Glee meets To Be and To Have,” this spirited documentary-musical-hybrid by director David André 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 subtitles82 min. | Unrated

Organized by Cinema/Chicago in partnership with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and the consular and cultural partners
