LA SYNDICALISTE is the true story of Maureen Kearney, the head union representative of a French multinational nuclear powerhouse. She becomes a whistleblower, denouncing top-secret deals that shake up the French nuclear sector. Alone against the world, she fights government ministers and industry leaders to bring scandals to light and to defend more than 50,000 jobs. Her life is turned upside down when she is violently assaulted in her own home. During the subsequent investigation, new evidence creates doubt in the minds of the investigators. At first a victim, Maureen becomes a suspect.

Jean-Paul Salomé wanted this film to be a truthful drama about the mechanics of power and the unrelenting violence against those who try to challenge it, especially if they are women. Also in this collaboration with Salomé, Isabelle Huppert plays a very realistic character with whom the viewer can readily identify.

Jean-Paul Salomé, France, 2022, 121 min. French spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Isabelle Huppert, Grégory Gadebois, François-Xavier Demaison, Pierre Deladonchamps, Alexandra Maria Lara..
