Storyline

Introduction to Sociology. For three years (1998-2001) Pierre Carles followed Pierre Bourdieu, a major sociologist, working to have his research understood and people prompted to action. Sociology is a fighting sport, not an intellectual technical tool for the elite to validate their choices. People need sociology to understand the growing inequalities and fire back, find their way out of the all-economic fatalism. Written by viktor-18 <viktor_p(AT)mail.com>

Fascinating documentary. The portrait of a Giant.
1 November 2006 | by branikiSee all my reviews

Pierre Bourdieu was a highly considered sociologist whose scientific conclusions made him take some occasional left winged political positions. You can imagine it made him a quite controversial character since he frequently pointed out the persistent conservative state of mind of the whole political class (right and left).

Pierre Carles, documentary film maker, followed this exceptional man on several public performances in Colleges and seminaries, as well as interviews, and pointed out without any kind of directive attitude, how charismatic the man could be. Furthermore, the film gives us some essential clues to understand part of his work.

The film runs for more than 2 hours, Bourdieu's way of speaking is not quite as perfect as we are used to hear on radio or T.V., but we "drink" every word of his non-stop speech from the beginning to the end. Highly instructive! The other film by Pierre Carles "Enfin Pris" also deals with that personality after he passed away in 2002 just to insist again on how impossible it was for a man of that stature to get a chance to express himself on mass media. The eternal struggle of "form" Vs. "content". Just unique!
