This last theme is reflected in documentary film productions about work: the study of cinematographic strategies in the documentary approach and analysis of work situations.
Since 1997, the laboratory has been developing a thematic focus centered on the filmed activity of work, in partnership with several French companies: Eurocopter, La Poste, the Luberon Regional Natural Park, and the Conseil Général of the Bouches-du-Rhône. Today, the work of LESA mobilizes around ten researchers and PhD students on issues as varied as: internal mobility and the transfer of experience at Eurocopter (2004/2011); skills and know-how at La Poste (1997/2008); the role of park wardens among the local population of the Luberon Regional Natural Park (2008/2011); parenthood links in host families at the Conseil Général 13 (2011/2015); the establishment of the first AMAP (an association for maintaining small-scale agriculture) in PACA; short distribution chains in organic farming; and land pressures in semi-urban areas.
Each film is created by pairs of filmmakers/social scientists, who aim to question the functioning of our organized society and also try to find solutions for the film’s participants that are adapted to their problems
