Yet another political portrait makes its way into this year’s MIPCOM Picks, with this French ‘fly on the wall’ doc focusing on Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, first lady of France. Whether he’s following her through the halls of the Palais de l’Élysée or accompanying her on official business, director Marc Berdugo captures many shades of the former model and singer as she’s thrust into a new level of limelight. While she’s racked up a fair amount of living in front of a camera, Bruni-Sarkozy makes for a riveting subject, as she learns to negotiate the terms of her new role and public persona.
