    This documentary series will tell the story of intimate and tumultuous love stories in the context of art history. A love story is a fascinating detour that can lead us to discover and rediscover an artistic journey and the works that are born from its romantic encounters. 

    The series brings us into the foot steps of Amedao Modigliani and Jeanne Hébuterne, Lee Miller and Man Ray or Gerda Taro and Robert Capa who, together, photograph the Spanish civil war, in a communion of romantic, political and artistic commitment.
    This love story is an excuse to narrate the lives of artists, their neuroses and narcissism, and to confront them to their alter ego, the other, their double.
    Each of the couples of this collection answers the same questions : is love compatible with creation ? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion ? Does love bring a renewed energy to Art ?

    For most of the 20th century, more than any other instrument, the guitar was a symbol of rebellion. Wielded by musicians from all walks of life, it was a weapon used to wage ideological battles, to fight the establishment and light the fires of resistance.

    From blues to punk-rock, from rock 'n roll to Tropicália, from folk and protest song to hard rock and grunge, it has been brandished in anger against racial segregation, social injustice, war, dictatorship or conformism in the adult world...
    Discover the other story of the most popular instrument through the voices of guitarists such as Wayne Kramer, John Kay, Judy Collins or Lee Ranaldo. This is the story of how six simple strings managed to shake the planet as well as consciences.

    2020 will be Beethoven's year! Celebrations will be held throughout the world for the 250th anniversary of his birth. This is a great occasion to learn about the composer's life through his letters, his handwritten notes and the testimonies of great musicians and artists of our time. 

    Through writing and music, this film offers an intimate approach to Beethoven's life and work: discover the struggles of a man who never gave up.
    Beethoven's correspondence and diaries make for a unique material. It sheds a light on the composer to reveal a side of him that has never been seen before. His temperament, his struggles, what he admired, what he hated, how he lived his life... Most of these precious writings are rarely talked about.

    After a career spanning 40 years, this American actor and winner of 3 Golden Globes does not seem to have developed one wrinkle. From Top Gun to Mission: Impossible, his legendary smile has dominated many blockbuster productions. He has inspired Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone and many others. 

    Although he was, for a long time, Hollywood's highest paid star, Tom Cruise is also a secret and tormented actor whose break-ups and Scientology beliefs provide regular fodder for the tabloids. This film will try to unveil the man behind the film icon.

  • CHARLES BRONSON, THE SPIRIT OF MASCULINITY

    With his grizzled moustache and chiselled features, Charles Bronson is the embodiment of a slightly archaic, brooding and almost reactionary virility. But who is he really?

    With his grizzled moustache and chiselled features, Charles Bronson is the embodiment of a slightly archaic, brooding and almost reactionary virility. But who is he really?

    Often hired to play marginalised Native American or Mexican characters before he was typecast as the image of a lone killer, Bronson was a major figure in the popular cinema of the 1960s and 70s and his stony-faced, physical acting and career are worthy of a second look.

    By turns novelist, mime, dancer, nude, critic, screenwriter, publicist, and even shopkeeper, Colette lived life to the full, continually reinventing herself through a series of scandals and metamorphoses. A provincial woman who became an icon of the Belle Epoque, she became a celebrated writer, a pioneer of autofiction turning herself into a devilishly romantic character, inseparable from her work.
     

    Our film immerses the viewer in the novel of her life, a narrative in several acts, just like her successive metamorphoses.
    Retracing Colette’s career also means sketching a portrait of the early 20th century. With her, in the Paris of the Belle Epoque, we enter the intellectual and high-society worlds, meeting many of the colorful figures of the period as we move through the music-hall scene.

    Very few Icons have at once embodied the Myths of their own country while revealing its contradictions: heiress of the Hollywood star system and muse of the French auteur Cinema, Academy Award winning actress and committed producer, feminist and aerobic queen, activist and fearless businesswoman… 

    In a lifetime, Jane Fonda may have reconciled all the facets of America without renouncing her own integrity. Through her portrait, the film tells a social and political story while drawing the picture of a typically American phenomenon.

    “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” continues to find new readers and to inspire artists and creators the world over more than a century after its publication because Oscar Wilde gave his novel all the ingredients of a universal masterpiece. 

    Driven by a rock ’n’ roll soundtrack and a directorial approach blending archives, live-action footage and animation, this documentary allows the viewer to experience the dramatic power of this fantasy tale that probes the torments of narcissism, and  explores the book’s premonitory dimension, which prefigures both the author’s tragic fate and contemporary society’s obsession with image.
     

  • FANTASTIC MR. MURRAY

    Outside of his films, Bill Murray is almost always an elusive man. He hates interviews but isn't a misanthrope. He prefers to be where we don't expect him. This film reveals the extraordinary character behind the famous actor. 

    From Wilmette, the small town in Illinois where he grew up; to New York, where he established his fame in the Saturday Night Live; to Chicago, where he made his debut; Paris which fascinated him and Los Angeles which he hates – we will meet witnesses who will help us understand this one-off character.
    The structure pays homage to one of his instant classics: Groundhog Day. A never ending quest with its share of humor, tenderness, mystery and nonsense.
    Each day of this film deals with an aspect of his life from his childhood to nowadays: his personality, a place, a key moment in his career. Each day unravels a little more of the mystery and teach us more about his life and journey. Bill Murray's character in Groundhog Day wants to know everything about Andie MacDowell's tastes and avoid any mistake in hope of seducing her one day. Like him, the narrator of our film wants to take every parameter into account for the day he will finally manage to meet Bill Murray.

    Julie Andrews starred in Hollywood productions that have become iconic movies, winning an Oscar for her performance as Mary Poppins, a symbol of the magic of musicals from the 1960s. 

    And yet, behind the squeaky-clean image hides a much more tortuous career, with its moments of glory and tough times, all of which explain the longevity of a story that is still being written.

    Radiohead’s music has been crossing borders and transcending genres for 25 years. This documentary reveals how the band succeeded in reinventing themselves to always be in step with the times, and how they managed to preserve their originality and independence. 

    From their early pop-grunge days with Drill and Pablo Honey to the electro of KID A and orchestral arrangements of A Moon Shaped Pool, the five-piece English group has evolved, constantly shifting their references. Despite being one of the world’s top-selling bands, having sold some 30 million albums, they have pulled off the delicate exercise of being hugely popular while retaining their independence, having deftly navigated the shift to digital and the crisis in the recorded music industry.
     
    Emblematic of the 1990s but still relevant today, Radiohead’s output spans a quarter-century that has seen neoliberalism spread in the west, the Internet become widespread, and digital devices become an extension of the self, through to the promise of impending transhumanism. These existential and political themes have been clear strands throughout the group’s oeuvre, each album providing an echo to a moment in our history.
    Radiohead: Mutant Group will explore how these themes come through in the lyrics, music, videos, graphics, and declarations of the members of Radiohead, and how the band has kept its singularity and commercial and artistic freedom without being swallowed up by the “monster".
