The Super 8 Years

60 minutes 2022 6.7

Nobel laureate in literature Annie Ernaux's life before the successes is depicted through the family's Super-8 films from the 1970s. Annie works as a teacher, but has begun to build the world that her books will move in for the next 50 years.

The Super 8 Years reflect the search for the mysteries of the past and the uncertainty about the future found in Ernaux's novels. She herself acts as the narrator, behind the camera is her husband, and their son directs this intimate depiction of a writer's life.
