We Did It on a Song is a hybrid documentary and musical film about a group of high school students in a small industrial town in France. A class screening of the film may complement a French language, music or social studies curriculum. Taught in conjunction with this guide, the film will encourage students to think critically about their personal goals and the transition from childhood to adulthood. Discussion questions and supplemental materials facilitate further research into related topics such as relationships with family, academics, and the challenges of coming of age in a depressed economy.
