The Front National: Investigating Their Young Supporters

In an attempt to understand this phenomenon, the journalists requested to follow the FN on the campaign trail in Alpes-Maritimes. When their requests were ignored, they went undercover for two months to show the real face of the party. Secretly recorded footage shows FN party officials denying the holocaust. This party claims to no longer preach to the extreme right-wing but, within, still spreads racist and xenophobic ideas. This immersion into young, nationalist activism recalls a time that the party likes to claim is long in the past…

This documentary shows the paradox between the outward discourse of the Front National and its inner reality, along with the penetrable nature of the identity movements.
