In politics, words are a privileged means of
communication. It is through words that ideas are debated and politicians attempt to convince citizens. Words also give politics its theatrical dimension. Public life is a “stage” where the aim is to seduce and persuade. In March 1998,
regional elections were held in France. Esti made the most of them to follow the campaign of a right-wing candidate from the RPR party in Tarn who submits his speeches to a communications advisor. Based on this framework, Esti has constructed a film that favors a human approach and interrogates political speech. As a counterpoint are Philippe Seguin’s thoughts in response to the director’s questioning.
