Quelque chose de grand

What We Have Made

This film tells the story of a colossal construction site, where thousands of workers have joined forces to bring a huge architectural work to life. In the same way a gigantic theater production is pieced together, every person has a very specific part to play. And despite the fatigue and mishaps, despite the dangers, setbacks, and accidents, they are all driven by the same shared goal.
