About the film “À voix haute-la force de la parole” (“Speak up”):
Each year at the University of Saint-Denis, Paris, the competition for the Best Orator takes place. The students of this university studying any course decide to participate and prepare with help from professionals (lawyers, directors of theatrical productions), who teach them the difficult exercise of speaking in public. The students learn the subtle inner workings of rhetoric and learn to assert themselves, reveal themselves to others, but also to themselves.
Leïla, Elhadj, Eddy, and the others confront each other and try to win this competition to be the Best Orator.
