L'Exercice de l'État (The Minister)
Friday, February 7, 9PM
Saturday, February 8, 5PM
From the opening scene of The Minister, we find ourselves immersed in the seductive and destructive force of political power. The ambitious and idealistic Bertrand Saint-Jean, a low-ranking cabinet member, finds himself unable to break free from the behind-the-scenes machinations of a political system that perpetuates itself through the sacrifice of its own members.
