By François Ruffin, 2016, France – 84 min – Documentary (not a cartoon!!!)
With François Ruffin, Bernard Arnault, Jocelyne et Serge Klur
The film's stars are Jocelyn and Serge Klur, former workers at a factory in the North of France that manufactured clothes for the luxury goods brand Kenzo, owned by LVMH. When the factory was moved to Poland, the couple (and thousands of other employees) found themselves unemployed, struggling with debt, and at risk of losing their house.
The director and left-wing activist François Ruffin sets out to help the couple, seeking to make Bernard Arnault, French billionaire and head of LVMH, pay compensation to the couple for "ruining their lives".
MERCI PATRON won the Cesar Award 2017 for Best Documentary.
In French with English subtitles.
Next Screening: Sunday, JUNE 18th, stay tuned!
