Notre monde
Our World

Rassemblant plus de 35 intervenants, philosophes, sociologues, économistes, magistrats, médecins, universitaires et écrivains, "Notre monde" propose un espace d'expression pour travailler, comme nous y enjoint Jean-Luc Nancy, à "une pensée commune". S'appuyant sur un ensemble foisonnant de propositions concrètes, et plus encore qu'un libre espace de parole, "Notre monde" agit comme un rappel essentiel, individuel et collectif : "faites de la politique" et de préférence autrement. Thomas Lacoste, initiateur de "l'Autre Campagne" parallèle à la campagne présidentielle de 2007, auteur des entretiens "Penser critique", nous offre ici une grande respiration, comme un temps de pause, face au rythme haletant de la vie politique.

The ticking of La Bande Passante's clock announces the beginning of the show: time stands still.
The audience takes place in the theater. “Quiet… camera rolling… action!”: a tracking shot reveals a row of lenses and microphones, before joining their point of view. The camera, wavering between documentary and fiction, ushers us into the movie, inviting us not to believe but to see and hear.
With this movie, Thomas Lacoste offers us a deep breath, away from the relentless political turmoil. Carrying Marie Ndiaye’s words, Marianne Denicourt’s “staggening murmur” invites us to watch and listen closely to those who continue to dream our world.
Featuring over 35 guest speakers (philosophers, sociologists, economists, magistrates, doctors, scholars and writers), Our World establishes a communication forum and urges us to accept Jean-Luc Nancy’s invitation to work towards “a shared thought”. However, far from an ideal, unfathomable world, practical solutions to the current dysfunctions and dead-ends are drawn up. Education, health, justice, labour law, culture, economy, international politics, sexual and racial discrimination, democracy: their symptoms are not only diagnosed, many cures are prescribed.
Yet, more than a free space of expression, Our world fosters exchanges. Marianne Denicourt, “the woman with a camera”, takes us from the studio to the theater, where the guest speakers address a live audience. Faces and cameras farther than the eye can see invite us to join in their gaze, while Marianne Denicourt’s whisper prompts us to listen carefully.
In praise of a liberated political discourse, "Our World" sounds the alarm: politics are a public matter; each and everyone of us, ought to reinvest “our world”.
Thomas Lacoste rejects a unilateral perspective by opposing a symphony of voices that urge us to become more involved in politics - preferably in novel ways.
"Let's invent Our World!"
