Based on the novel of the same name by French writer Didier Eribon, Returning to Reims uses archive footage to construct an intimate and political account of the French working class from the early 1950s to the present day.

Directed by Jean-Gabriel Périot, who once again shows us his usual style and his taste for the links between memory and image, we find a very interesting political essay that questions the contemporary history of France, pointing out both its political failures and the vindication of feminist and class struggles. An audiovisual document that recovers archival images that dance with an overwhelming text recited by the unmistakable voice of Adèle Haenel (Portrait of a Lady on Fire).
