    Filmed primarily in law offices and courts only steps away from the glittering lights of Las Vegas's famed Strip, Sin City Law reveals a different side of Las Vegas - a world of gang activity, homelessness, drugs and mob vendettas.

    As Poncet, de Lestrade and director Remy Burkel scrutinize four recent murder cases, their cameras sit in on strategy sessions in the offices of the district attorney, observe moving conversations between the accused and their public defenders, and chronicle the trial as it unfolds in the courtroom. Like their other acclaimed films, Poncet and de Lestrade's raw, honest and suspenseful stories are as emotionally engaging as any high-quality TV drama, while also opening a window to the realities of crime and punishment in the United States.

    Fire dancing in Papua New Guinea or climbing to the top of the Ethiopian cliffs to introduce one’s child to God: this series reveals how some people today still practice rituals that structure their lives and become, beyond a simple social bond, a structuring force and a source of culture.

    In societies that struggle to find their bearings, rituals - whether pagan or mysterious - are of particular importance when people are confronted with the unknown, illness, death, not knowing what tomorrow is made of. Rituals help organise chaos, warding off our fears and bringing to light the meaning in our lives.
    Anthropologist, Anne-Sylvie Malbrancke, helps us understand and experience these moments with those who practice them.

    Among the Moso people in southwest China, women are the heads of households, the farm managers, they pass on their names and property to their daughters, they choose their lovers, and they do not marry. The very ideas of fatherhood and marriage are almost unknown, sexuality is free.

    The Moso say that “man is like the effect of rain on the grass, no matter who does it, what counts is that the grass is watered”.
     
    They are a model community for the UN, yet their way of life is threatened.
    Nowadays, the Chinese government is cracking down on cultural minorities – notably attacking them through finance. Tourism is developing in this region and advantageous bank loans are being granted to married couples. Western-style marriage has become a fashionable phenomenon.
     
    Lamu is an Ama – a mother, the head of her household. She is faced with a problem that is eating away at her. Her niece Erchema wants to marry and live with her husband... This decision is totally incomprehensible to Lamu.
      For the Moso people, marriage is a threat to harmony, an essential value that comes before anything else, including money.
    What will become of the Mosos?

    In 1960, the British Crown sued the publishing house Penguin Books in order to ban D.H. Lawrence's “Lady Chatterley's Lover” – a graphic account of an aristocrat and her gamekeeper's carnal love. For six days, prosecutors and lawyers discussed the literary qualities of a book that talks about sex without taboos, celebrates nature, and advocates harmony between beings. 

    To the often comical and even grotesque indignation of the prosecution are opposed the sincere pleas in favor of “Lady Chatterley's Lover”. The heart of a literary work will be scrutinized, from the intentions of its author – the son of a Midlands miner – to its social and political significance.
    But how obscene is this brave literary endeavor to write sex as it is, in its naked truth? And what can we say about this depiction of nature with the same passion, as a metaphor for human sensuality?
    Based on selected excerpts from the trial, the film offers to explore – free from its contemporary moral confines – what made Lady Chatterley a literary and popular myth that has gone above and beyond its century and borders. And since its trial in 1960 defused the scandal to reveal the true dimension of this work, the film seeks to reveal all its implications, the whole truth, its entire significance. It also enables us to assess its influence in today's society.

    Pigalle in 2017 is like a city-world that repeats itself – triumphant gentrification and engulfing emptiness – while it also has been hailed as a magnificent locality from its inception; it is an incredibly mixed territory and a sort of creative and artistic anomaly within Paris’ framework. 

    Nowadays, Pigalle is called SoPi (for South Pigalle); the district has become a trademark. The hooker bars have become trendy cafés. We have kept the names and peeled everything else off. It could be Soho, or London, or anywhere. In the big cities, the hipsters’ reproduction of their business model and codes leads to an urban standardization that often excludes the poorer classes.
    Through a unique movie installation (a pocket cinema on the main square) “Le Pigalle” will gather locals and witnesses of the district’s rich history. It will be like a furtive and popular cultural re-appropriation of the area.
    Our film will tell the story of a square, a district, and a people like a vibrant convergence of Parisian culture. The pivotal moments of its transformation will be reenacted – the Trente Glorieuses, the 70s crisis, the 80s anguish, the gentrification from 2000 onwards – as a modern retelling of Pigalle’s vivid tale.

    In Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, the Minangkabau are a matriarchal society. While Koranic law attributes only one-third of the inheritance to girls, the property of a Minangkabau family is passed on from mother to daughter and men can be repudiated by their wives.

    Reini is a young woman from the Minangkabau ethnic group in West Sumatra. She is getting married. She goes to pick up her future husband from his parents’. According to their tradition, she is the one who has to lead him to the ceremony where the guests are waiting. After the wedding, the young husband will move in with his in-laws and take care of the children of his clan, while Reini will work in the fields.
     
    But in Indonesia, in recent years, Islam has become more rigid. Nowadays more and more men want to restrict women's freedom. Reini knows that the Minangkabau way of life and traditions are in danger, but she plans to fight to protect them.

    Some crimes have become sensational news stories and their memories are now part of our popular culture. From Jack the Ripper to Roswell and Lady Di, each episode revisits a page of our shared history.

    Sensational news stories of violent crimes, accidents and suicides act as intermittent reminders of how minor or major transgressions can wreck our lives. Each episode in this series revisits a fascinating page of our shared history, meticulously decoding and deconstructing a sensational news item that was unjustly disdained by historians and generally left to the sensationalist press.

    Who? When? How? Why? This series immerses us in the chaos at the dark heart of crime fiction, taking us on journey through the labyrinthine workings of the whodunnit, with many a shudder along the way.

    Nowadays, one published novel in four is a "roman noir", a "thriller" or a "detective story". How did crime fiction come to be so popular that it is now a universal language everyone can understand? 
     
    Through interviews with present-day creators of crime fiction, Part 1 of Anatomy of Crime Fiction analyses the fateful trio of the victim, the murderer and the detective, piecing together a profile of the 3 emblematic figures who provide the starting-point for all good whodunnits, while Parts 2 and 3 explore locations and plots.
