Georges Bernanos, Story of a free man

Georges Bernanos, Story of a free man

A Short film by Yves Bernanos, Jean-Pascal Hattu

Produced by Real Productions

Production year : 2019


    A major, 20th century literary figure and a witness fully engaged in the great events of his time, Georges Bernanos was also a whistleblower and a visionary. Throughout his life, he fought against totalitarism, skewed ideological thinking, capitalism, consumer society, political compromises, and the instrumentalization of people. He did so by violently taking a position, without ever giving in to conformism. Bernanos's grandson and grandnephew bring a new light to bear on the most anti-conformist writer of his period, the intensity of whose texts still resonate today.
