Master documentarian Nicolas Philibert (Etre et Avoir, Nénette) turns his probing, sensitive camera on the inner workings of the inspirational public broadcaster Radio France - the French equivalent of the BBC - to enchanting, enlightening and frequently humorous effect.
Philibert spent half a year wandering Radio France’s massive "round house" complex on the banks of the Seine in western Paris, filming the people who dedicate themselves utterly and meticulously to their work, and allowing the rich diversity of programming to create a universe of its own, a reverberating echo of the world outside.
Hearing is believing in this captivating behind-the-scenes portrait of French public radio.
