L'expérience Blocher by Jean-Stéphane Bron
The story of Switzerland’s most controversial political leader. It also chronicles the face-to-face encounter between a filmmaker and a man of power, through a year of exclusive, up-close interviews and access to his private life. Fall 2011. Christoph Blocher is on the campaign trail, working toward a victory for his rightwing, nationalist SVP party that will ultimately win nearly a third of the votes. His car offers an unrivaled vantage point for the filmmaker Jean-Stéphane Bron, enabling him to tell the story from the inside, and in the first person. On the road, the film unravels the threads of Blocher's life - his triumphs, his methods, his secrets. How did an impoverished pastor's son became a successful businessman with a colossal fortune, and one of the most powerful men in Switzerland? A political parable and reflection on a country, the film traces the portrait of a man who has radically transformed politics in Switzerland, Moreover, the film captures the mood of a period when, all over crisis-stricken Europe, nationalism is on the rise.
