SYNOPSIS: The educational documentary “The French agricultural profession: a socio-political and economic analysis of past paradigms to build tomorrow”, aims at replacing the major issues and policy choices that have shaped the agricultural profession since the post-war era and those it will face in the future, hence a historical but also prospective context. The film consists of thirty interviews of personae, experts and key witnesses, speaking on a specific part of the film, illustrated with visual archives, contextual shots and iconographic sources and statistics.

PURPOSE: With a total of 190 minutes, the film is structured in three thematic parts of one hour each (I/ sociological developments, II/ policy framework , III/ economic issues). It is not intended to be exhaustive but instead to raise questions and key issues leading to reflexion and discussion. Each part is sequenced in modules of 5 minutes per speaker and has a targeted scope of action. Each sequence can be used à la carte depending on educational and pedagogical needs. This film is primarily intended for specialized agricultural instructors, as well as an audience of students, trainees, young adults, and future professional leaders.
