"The Future of the French Revolution," A Lecture by Citizen Yvon Grenier, Department of Political Science.
The French Revolution features contrasting qualities: virtue and intolerance, humanism and terror, classicism and romanticism. It is the cradle of political modernity: the modern state, citizenship, mass politics, ideologies, human reights, democracy and totalitarianism. From 1789 to the Yellow Vests movement, the revolutionary spirit lives on, but is the Revolution over?

No - Military dictator Augusto Pinochet calls for a referendum to decide his permanence in power in 1988, the leaders of the opposition persuade a young daring advertising executive - René Saavedra - to head their campaign. With limited resources and under the constant scrutiny of the despot's watchmen, Saavedra and his team conceive of a bold plan to win the election and free their country from oppression.
