SYNOPSIS: An actress and her director are working on the narration for Returning to Reims, a documentary adaptation of Didier Eribon’s memoir about his homecoming after coming out as a gay man and years of estrangement. Through the text, they confront Eribon’s painful discovery upon his arrival: the traditionally left-wing parties and the liberal middle-class with which he now identifies are perpetuating the marginalization of the working-class to which he once belonged, sending the workers running into the arms of the right-wing National Front.

Directed by Thomas Ostermeier

Starring Nina Hoss
