1988 Presidential Election, the election of lost illusions ?

Directed by Bertrand Delais

Written by Bertrand Delais and Adam Leibovitz

52 minutes


Between April 24th and May 8th 1988, France found itself between two rounds of presidential election. The drama as well as the stakes of this election make this moment a particular point of tension. This movie immerses us in these 14 days that changed the politics of our country durably.

Foreign and national events, the hunger for power, all the elements of France’s recent history were at work in these two weeks. Today, we still live the political consequences of this election.
