French Armenian journalist Jean Eckian has been chosen to play French historical figure Jules Ferry in a TV movie entitled “Ferry et Clémenceau.”
Filming began this week in the French National Assembly. It is a fictional documentary about the antagonism between Georges Clémenceau and the author of the law on free education at school. It’s also about a supporter of colonization and of the superior race.
Jean Eckian has already participated in several films. The Ferry et Clémenceau is directed by Joël Calmettes, author of more than 50 films.
“Ferry et Clémenceau” will be released soon on France 5 TV.
