Doubting everything or believing everything are two resignations of thought. This is what Sophie Mazet teaches twenty high school students in Seine-Saint-Denis. Every week for a year, the energetic teacher unrolls the thread of an intellectual self-defense course she has invented. It’s a toolbox for developing critical thinking and reacting with a clear conscience to the rise of extremes and identity-based drifting through the ages. David, Emmanuella, Céline, Amel, Thomas and the others analyze the power of words, decipher political language, spot fake news and conspiracy rhetoric. Throughout the school year, we witness a subtle, gradual awakening of awareness.
