Philomena - Episode JUSTICE

A documentary collection by Anne-Lise Rey & Brigitte Barbier, directed by Brigitte Barbier

Synopsis of the collection

How to think for oneself, how to form one's own opinion and to reason when one is aged between 10 and 14 years old in the 21st century?
The thirteen-year-old animation character, Philomena, gives a lesson in philosophical thought through her own questions and becomes acquainted with the great names of philosophy through five key words: Justice, Love, Difference, Death and Freedom.

In this episode, Philomena comes across information about the number of homeless people who have died since the beginning of the year. This is an opportunity to reflect on the difference between individual and collective action. She discovers that fairness is the sense of what is right or wrong and learns what the law of retaliation is and why Socrates preferred to die rather than break the laws of the city. She understands how laws were created in antiquity, why justice and democracy are closely linked.... Finally, she will reflect on what it means to be a citizen, well... a citizen!
