The revolutionary plays "1789" and "1793", the monumental film "Moliére", the dramatization of Klaus Mann's "Mephisto", the Shakespeare cycle - Ariane Mnouchkine's work always creates sensation, and the works are extolled as "first rate theatrical events" and "productions of the century". “In search of the sun" presents Wener Schroetr, himself an experienced director of film and theatre, observing the artistic endeavours of his colleague, Mnouchkine, and her Theatre du Soleil; a collective consisting of both professional and amateur actors.
