This film examines François Mauriac artistic and political career by understanding the author’s faith, the driving force of his creative work.
Mauriac is a wonderful witness of his time. Although he never renounced his Christian and humanist values, through his work and his commitment to changing society he denounced hypocrites of all kinds, including those who feigned piety. Mauriac probed the depths of evil and described a world seeking to shed its spiritual identity. He was a subversive writer, who also attacked his own roots and social class.
How did such a wealth of work spring from these contradictions? Who was François Mauriac? What role did faith play in his work? These are the questions this documentary aims to answer.
The documentary also highlights the links between transgression and work of the writer. Links highlighting the modernity of his work.
