“I was completely toast in the industry”: Philippe Poutou found a CDI … in the cinema

From the automotive industry to the film industry. Worker at Ford for decades, Philippe Poutou, 55, has just been hired as “in charge of non-media promotion” at Urban distribution, as revealed by “Le Film français”. “I will organize previews and debates so that the films come out in the best conditions,” explains the former presidential candidate and representative of the New Anti-Capitalist Party (NPA). It will be a bit of a militant activity: I will fight to make small films exist with small means”. “Philippe will contact the associative networks concerned by our feature films, which have societal themes”, adds Jean-Jacques Rue, head of distribution at Urban distribution.
