    The French director and historian Ruth Zylberman is sitting in a living room in the USA, visiting a 79-year-old man whom his Jewish parents hid with a stranger’s family during the German occupation of Paris. Henry Osman, born Henri Ossmann, hardly remembers his parents – not what they looked like, not what they did for a living. Zylberman has brought a pile of paper copies and is able to reconstruct parts of that childhood.

           The house whose address gave the film its title – and where Osman lived as a small boy – is located in the Jewish district of Paris. Zylberman reconstructed the house community during the war in great detail: who lived here? Who knew whom? Re-enactments with dollhouse furniture and drawn floor plans at the former residents’ kitchen tables alternate with contemporary views of the building as she re-creates this typical Paris building in the Saint-Maur No. 209 as an anachronistic space in which history is still alive, right down to the cobbled courtyard. A highly focused and at the same time extremely emotional piece of experimental historiography.

    Gandhi was a world known icon, a non-violent leader and symbol of India’s independence. What were his strategies to personify this struggle, and how did he make his own body and his image the key weapons of a worldwide communications battle in India, Europe and in the US?
     

    With both archives of the events and shootings on sites, our film will also question what remains of the myth, what it still inspires, its failures as well as the way it was eventually betrayed.

    Mandela’s legend is built in his absence, during his 27- year incarceration. In 1990, when Nelson Mandela is released, South Africa is waiting for their Messiah. He doesn’t know it yet, he is the most famous political prisoner of the Planet. Will he be up to the challenge?
     

    The film evisits the genesis of a legend first built without the man itself, Mandela being jailed for 27 years. It is the story of a myth without a face, an international struggle against apartheid, popularised by political and pop culture figures all over the world. With a stabbing question: would Mandela be at the height?

    By becoming a “total filmmaker,” Lewis surpassed expectations as a comic performer and emerged as a driving force in Hollywood. Who is the man behind the clown?

    While American viewed Lewis as nothing more than just a clown, others like the French recognized him as a true auteur, giving birth to questions that have perplexed American pop culture for over 50 years: Why do Europeans love Jerry Lewis? What is this inexpliquable aversion Americans have towards him?

    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.

    Throughout the world, creators, enlightened spirits and activists are rising up to humanize fashion. Some go back to weaving, others create with 3D printers, but all want an ethical activity and say goodbye to intensive and shallow fashion.

    Globalized fashion is a planet pushed to its limits, a toxic passion – both absurd and dangerous. Throughout the world, an International of creators, enlightened spirits and activists are rising up to humanize fashion. Some go back to weaving, others create with 3D printers, but all want an ethical activity, a human-faced fashion world. Say goodbye to insensitive, shallow and grotesque fashion. Today, another fashion world is possible.
