Simon, a well-known French filmmaker, starts shooting a new film about a group of workers fighting to protect their factory from being relocated. But nothing goes as planned: as the budget is cut, his producer Viviane wants to rewrite the ending of the film. His own crew goes on strike, his personal life is in shambles and, to make things worse, his lead actor Alain is an egocentric jerk. Joseph, an extra who wants to get into the film industry, agrees to direct the “making of” and shoot the behind-the-scenes. He takes his role very seriously and starts following around the crew, capturing all this mess... An assembly of three film projects, Making of is described by director Cédric Kahn as “a social comedy, with cinema as its backdrop: a world which defends noble causes while reproducing its social inequalities”.
