VERSAILLES, KINGS, QUEENS AND PRESIDENTS
Versailles is synonymous with politics and power. Dinner at Versailles with a head of State is still one of the greatest honours the Republic can bestow on a guest. Kennedys, Reagan, Khrushchev, Queen Elizabeth, Shah of Iran, Colonel Khadafi… they were all invited to sit at the Presidential table at Versailles.
Experiencing the Château and its gardens through the eyes of these powerful hosts and the guests that were welcomed there is at the heart of this unique documentary. It will build on the archives of these grandiose events, demonstrating that even three centuries after the death of Louis XIV, Versailles remains a seat of power, with its influence and splendor felt way beyond France’s own boarders.
