Why we fight?

Eric Arnal Burtschy

Title of a series of propaganda films designed to explain to the American population the entry of the United States into the war during the Second World War, Eric Arnal-Burtschy asks himself the question of the meaning of this Why we fight today.

Engaged in the French army in parallel with his artistic work and having participated in military operations in Sahel, he combines many stories with his own history to deliver a sensitive and political performance on what can lead each of us to engage and why we fight.

An intimate and vibrant gesture resonating with the current events.
