A taster of 'The Workshop', the poetic and political entry for the "Un certain regard" section at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Palme d’Or winner Laurent Cantet (2008) returns to the Cannes film festival, in the parallel section Un Certain Regard, with The Workshop.

Set in La Ciotat in the south of France, it follows a group of teenagers in need of social integration who are selected to take part in a summer writing workshop with Olivia (Marina Foïs) a renowned Parisian author. The aim is for the group to write a novel drawn on their own lives that will eventually be published.
