Alice and the Mayor(FCP 2019)
The mayor of Lyon, Paul Théraneau, is in a bad way. He has run out of ideas. After thirty years in politics, he feels empty. To solve this problem, his team decides to hire a brilliant young philosopher, Alice Heimann. A dialogue between Alice and the mayor unfolds, bringing them together and shaking their certainties. Little by little, the question arises: are politics and reflection compatible?
