Summary

From September 1996 to January 1999, anthropologist Christian Lallier filmed the construction site of the new technical centre for wood and furniture which had been relocated to Bordeaux.
This film, which was shot thirteen years later, is an immersion at the heart of a project that shows a nascent workplace emerging from the professional relations between the various trades in the field. The building, as it is erected from its foundations, is a symbol of the challenges inherent to this situation of work woven by bonds of cooperation but also by relations of authority. Everyone shows their commitment to defending their profession and their professional affiliation, while contributing to the cohesion of work around a common project.
