In the rabble-rousing documentary A voix haute – La Force de la parole (Out Loud – The Power of Speech), director Stephane de Freitas focuses on a group of students who partake in the Eloquentia contest for the first time. Most of them have never spoken in public, but by the time the film is over, they could give Charles de Gaulle a run for his money.
