Nos élus: The people
behind the politicians
Télé-Québec launches a new observational documentary series beginning November 19
Politics is an omnipresent force in the public sphere. But what do we really know about the day-to-day of the men and women who commit to careers as politicians?
Télé-Québec presents Nos élus, Thursdays at 8 pm beginning November 19. This new documentary series produced by Taïga Média and directed by Louis Asselin throws open the doors of Quebec’s National Assembly, revealing the outstanding work of our parliamentarians. This one-of-a-kind television event presents a layered, subtle exploration of the human side of politics.
The controversies and clashes of the democratic arena often obscure the human qualities and commitment of the women and men who dedicate their lives to the common good. Over the course of the four episodes, audiences will be treated to a different perspective on these people whose motivation to go into politics is above all their fellow citizens, because they share their concerns and seek to further worthy causes.
The pandemic turns everything upside down
The ongoing health crisis has not spared politicians: just like anyone else, they had to bear the brunt of stay-at-home restrictions. They returned to their constituencies and confinement – where they quickly got involved and got to work, lending a hand to various local organizations. The purpose of their life in politics has taken on its full significance.
Nos élus is broadcast on Thursdays at 8 pm beginning November 19, with repeats on Tuesdays at 10 pm.
And at 9 pm, watch insights into the first episode on Dans les medias as Marie-Louise Arsenault welcomes guest contributors Monique Jérôme-Forget and Luc Ferrandez to comment on the first episode of Nos élus.
