An opportunity to see Sociology is a Martial Art, a documentary about Bourdieu's life, which became an unexpected hit in France just prior to Pierre Bourdieu’s death in 2002. Filmed over three years, director Pierre Carles' camera follows Bourdieu as he lectures, attends political rallies, travels, meets with his students, staff, and research team in Paris, and includes Bourdieu having a conversation with Günter Grass.
