ARTE will premiere the documentary on Saturday, January 29th at 4.30pm Who is Boris Johnson? (By Alice Cohen, Art France/Morgan Productions, France 2021, 52 min) It looks at one of the most famous but also the most controversial politicians in Great Britain, who is currently under heavy pressure due to the shutdown of parties and has to worry about his political life.
For many, he is a comic, a Trump supporter, and a protectionist populist. But Boris Johnson is much more than that. A graduate of Eton and Oxford, he is very intelligent, a liberal and a true expert on the European Union. Behind the mask of a funny clown, hides the elitist condescension acquired from the British upper class and an ego eroded by the desire for recognition. How did this man rise from court jester to political king? Has Boris Johnson a metaphor for the United Kingdom as a whole?
