Shot this summer over the course of seven weeks, La Cour des miracles has now entered into post-production. The first feature film to come courtesy of Carine May and Hakim Zouhani, a duo who turned a fair few heads with shorts such as Master of the Class and Molii (both of which were victorious in Clermont-Ferrand’s national competition in 2018 and 2014 respectively), not to mention La Virée à Paname (nominated for a César in 2015),La Cour des miracles boasts a cast composed of Rachida Brakni (who nabbed the Best New Hope César in 2002 for Chaos, who directed Visiting Ours [+leggi anche:

Written by Carine May and Hakim Zouhani themselves, the story unfolds in the Jacques Prévert school in the Parisian outskirts, an establishment whose existence is threatened by the arrival of a swanky, eco-friendly hall of residence and its shiny, new school building. Worried about losing what little social diversity her school still has, headteacher Zahia joins forces with a young, socially engaged and newly qualified teacher called Marion to try to turn her stricken establishment into the first “green school” of the Parisian suburbs. But she will need the help of her rather motley school crew, who aren’t particularly interested in nature…
La Cour des miracles is produced by Barbara Letellier and Carole Scotta on behalf of Haut et Court, in co-production with France 2 Cinéma. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film also enjoys the support of the Ile-de-France region, as well as finance from the CNC’s Images of Diversity fund, and further backing from Procirep, Angoa and the SOFICA companies Cofinova and La Banque Postale Images. Photography is helmed by Antoine Monod while the film’s music is entrusted to Yusek. Its release in French cinemas will be steered by Haut et Court, and international sales by France TV Distribution.
For the record, Haut et Court are currently overseeing post-production on Olivier Babinet’s Normale (read our article).
