The French Revolution

Telling the story of the slow construction of a nation, France, with its tragedies and hopes, and its heroes and heroines, the French people, whether leaders or anonymous citizens.

Telling of these centuries which forged the French identity, a dazzling kaleidoscope reflecting the lights of the world.

Telling the history of the Republic, this long process that would see republican ideals, born with the French Revolution, come up against the Empire and the return of monarchy, before becoming a lasting feature of the French state.

This journey through history will be a great fresco, a modern comedy, a romantic drama, an epic digital saga that is both entertaining and even poetic. A blend of genres and technologies which will recount both wider history and the individual histories of the French through the centuries.
