A group of third-year students at Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma (Carole Le Goc, Christopher Filosa, and Valentin Ramez) produced one of two short films that won awards in the first ever “Stereotype Busters” contest organized by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles, a French higher-education consortium.
Students were invited to submit an original poster or film challenging the conventional wisdom on gender equality in all areas.
The winners, all former members of the Phelma Student Government (Carole was Student Body President in 2014–2015), shot the film very quickly and edited it in just one night. The resulting 2’25” film is short and to the point! If you still think that women can’t drive, play video games, or run a business, think again!
