Leon Blum: For All Mankind
As co-scripted by Jean Bodon and Antoine Malamoud and directed by Bodon, this biographical documentary relays the heart-wrenching but ultimately triumphant life story of Léon Blum (1872-1950), the first Jewish man to serve as Prime Minister of France. Blum attained recognition for the degree of progressivism in his politics, which included championing women's rights and forging solidarity among left-wing movements to create the Popular Front. Blum's life took a tragic and unforeseen turn, however, when his Judaic heritage and leftwing convictions got him deported to the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. Miraculously, Blum survived, and returned to his native country to lead France with another term as prime minister. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
