The Last Mitterrand

Sunday 22nd January 5:00 PM


A young journalist meets 'the President' (a stunning Michel Bouquet) - France's last socialist President, as his potential biographer. Whilst learning about his years in power and his thoughts on the state of the nation, he also tries to find out about The Presidents' somewhat shady past, only to realise he is being watched.

Mixing biography, fiction and the filmmakers own research this is a biopic like no other. Defiantly intellectual in its study of ideas and ideals, the relationship between the individual and the state and as French as they come, this is a treat for any politically and socially minded person.
