ACTIVISM & ENVIRONMENT

Goliath is a drama with a difference, combining great talent with even greater questions.

César Award nominated director Frédéric Tellier, confronts the lesser-known evil of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in an ambitious and unapologetic fashion. Based on true events, drama gives way to shocking reality as everyday citizens come up against the might of global politics.

Gilles Lellouche will stun as the out and down yet determined lawyer, and Pierre Niney is stirring as the out of touch lobbyist, but it’s Emmanuelle Bercot’s performance that gives Goliath a powerful and tension filled feel that will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
