This documentary puts elements of the news into perspective with the words and achievements of Abbé Pierre: the different facets of his character, his activities in France and many other countries (Emmaus International) and contemporary reflections of his actions in street art, in song, in solidarity and in militant movements.
Born in 1912, Henry Grouès understood from an early age that his fundamental struggle, humanist rather than religious, would be more effective and sustainable if he managed to involve the media at his disposal.
How did this frail young man from the provinces, whose wealthy background could have led him to take over his father’s business, make the choice to serve the poor? How does he still inspire respect and admiration around the world? How does his contribution to society remain indispensable as well as uncertain in 2019?
