    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 ?

    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.

    “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.

    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. You will discover the origin of his comedic genius, his passions, his causes...

    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.

    Adored by their millions of fans around the world, 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".

    This film recounts the colorful career of the last tycoon of Hollywood’s Golden Age and explores the turbulent but creatively rewarding relationships between Spiegel and Hollywood giants John Huston, David Lean, Elia Kazan, Marlon Brando and Katherine Hepburn. 

    Sam Spiegel fled the specter of Nazi Germany in 1933 to become the most enigmatic and controversial film producer in the history of Hollywood, the equal of Selznick, Goldwyn, Zanuck and Mayer. He is the only person to win three Oscars as sole producer on a feature film, for On The Waterfront (1954), The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962).  He also produced the iconic film The African Queen with Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn (1951).
     
    Spiegel was a pioneer of independent filmmaking whose movies stacked up dozens of Academy Awards. He was considered to be a storytelling producer who was passionate about the human spirit overcoming adversity, and chose complex plots that served a charismatic hero struggling against the world.  He had a refugee mentality, which fed his desire to survive irrespective of the difficulties he encountered and took great risks with producing in terms of the size of the production and its physical distance from Hollywood. For a number of years, Spiegel used SP Eagle as his professional name to avoid creditors and the authorities - he had a criminal record for passing bad cheques and, for a time, was an illegal immigrant to the US.

    No one can resist his killer smile. With his immediately recognizable physique, Jack Nicholson is a far cry from the Californian playboy, at once undeniably sexy, yet singularly scary... How did this common young man become the icon of counterculture overnight?

    His sharp eye and arched brow give his disarming magnetism a hint of menace, as if he might go for your throat at any moment with a howl of Machiavellian laughter. In a Hollywood career spanning more than 50 years, Nicholson has conquered everyone, becoming the archetypal star who lives according to his own rules.

    With more than 60 movie credits to his name, and having worked with many of the best directors, from Roman Polanski to Stanley Kubrick, Elia Kazan, Michelangelo Antonioni and Martin Scorsese, Jack Nicholson has helped to redefine the notion of actor and remodel the American cinema landscape. Unmoved by critical approval, polemic, or convention, Nicholson remains the most elusive of American actors. For more than five decades, he has hauled his frame through Hollywood like a predator stalking the jungle, always on the alert, never satisfied, and fiercely free.

    For the first time, one of Hollywood’s greatest stars tells his own story, in his own words. From a childhood of poverty to global fame, Cary Grant, the ultimate self-made star, explores his own screen image and what it took to create it.

    Cary Grant is one of the most enduring icons of the Hollywood golden era. Described by the film historian and biographer David Thomson as the greatest screen actor of all time, Grant is without doubt the actor whose style as the suave and elegant man-in-the-suit has remained iconic and modern: his image is still used in advertising and inspired Don Draper in Mad Men.

    A portrait of Alain Delon that sets out to remove the masks of this defence-ridden, international icon - for the very first time.The portrait focuses entirely on its main subject - it is “pure Delon”, with no other interviewees. Via numerous film excerpts, it follows the actor’s path right from the start. At the end of this breathtaking journey, a new vision emerges: Alain Delon, the man of 87 movies and the most handsome face in French cinema, remains a mystery. 

  • BORSALINO, A HAT IN HOLLYWOOD

    The word "Borsalino" today designates a felt hat. The Borsalino family brand has become a household name, like that of Tupperware, Kleenex or Walkman.

    The quality felt hat, born in a small family factory in Alessandria in the 1850s, rose in status from manufactured object to veritable international myth when the craftsmanship of a small provincial town met the Hollywood dream. This film recounts the history of the manufacture of this myth, which has close ties to the history of cinema in the early 20th century.
     
    Also available: feature-length version (79').
