    This film, consisting entirely of archives, will recount the daily lives of both German civilians and soldiers during the six years of WW2, from its start in September 1939 up to the months following the German surrender. A plunge into the private lives of a people on the path to self-destruction.

    April 1945. The allied bombings had reduced Germany to ruins. The American and Soviet forces were concentrating on Berlin. Yet even when everything was already clearly lost, the Germans continued to fight for the Nazi regime to the bitter end. However, when the Second World War exploded six years earlier, the idea of war was deeply unpopular amongst the German population. How can such a tremendous shift in public opinion be explained ? What did the Germans believe they were fighting for ? Were they aware that they were leading a genocidal war? Why did the German people continue to fight to the death, despite the bombings, hardships and deprivation, convinced that they were fighting for their survival ?
     
    Based on The German War. A Nation Under Arms, 1939-45 - the innovative work by the historian Nicholas Stargardt drawn from a Herculean research effort - this film, consisting entirely of archives, will recount the daily lives of both German civilians and soldiers during the six years of the Second World War, from its start in September 1939 up to the months following the German surrender. Constructed from the letters, diaries and eyewitness accounts of Germans from all walks of life, the film plunges us into the lives of the men and women who lived through the tornado born of their own violence. Soldiers writing to their fiancees or their families, World War I veterans, members of Hitler Youth, persecuted Jews, anti-Nazis, priests and pastors, journalists, writers... The words they left behind reveal the personal thoughts of a people at war, raising the curtain on the mechanics of the Nazi regime.
     
    This is a direct dive into the tsunami of World War II, when Nazism pushed its mortal logic to the extreme end.

    In the fall of 2017, Washington and Pyongyang were still threatening each other with nuclear strikes, to the point of worrying China, Russia, Japan and the rest of the world. What happened then? The “maximum pressure” imposed by the United-States paid out? In this unique film, senior executives from the two Koreas, the United-States, Russia and China tell this story together.

    Since the beginning of time, human beings all over the world have made use of plants for healing purposes. These three documentaries, that can be show separately, tell the story of medicinal plants.

    Two-thirds of the Earth's population still rely on some form of traditional medicine. In Africa, Asia and Latin America, complex and subtle medical knowledge has survived to this day, handed down via comprehensive oral traditions.
    Meanwhile, in the West, with the development of medicinal chemistry and universal access to health care during the first half of the 20th century, traditional healing practices and the use of medicinal plants gradually came to be seen as esoteric pastimes.
    After a gap of almost a century, the West is rediscovering the benefits of plant medicine. As a result of the new recognition that medicine needs to centre around the person as a whole, we are taking another look at this traditional discipline. Plant medicine, which has continued to thrive unabated in the southern hemisphere, is now experiencing a revival in western countries.

    Following a line of enquiry, these documentaries enable us to understand the pandemic - its origin, its mode of propagation, its fatal consequences and the ways in which we can protect ourselves from it.

    A catastrophe is coming. And yet the whole world, its people and leaders, are carrying on as if nothing has happened. We are looking away, closing our ears, not wanting to hear the prophets of doom.
    Bird flu, however, is a very real threat, forecast by the least worried of scientists to arrive in the next twenty years, and possibly well before then. The estimated figures total 20 million deaths throughout the world. Suddenly these figures remind us of ancient plagues which we thought had died out.
    Despite his great knowledge, man is still just as vulnerable in the face of illness. And even the most sophisticated of States does not possess sufficient drug stocks to guarantee the survival of its citizens.

  • GAZA- SDEROT, PRE-WAR CHRONICLES

    For two months, in November and December 2008, an Israeli team, in Sdertor, and a Palestianian team in Gaza documented the daily life of the women, children and men of the two cities.

    The two cities are just two kilometres apart, which is very close, but they are separated by a frontier that is difficult to cross, both physically and mentally.

    Initially broadcast on the gaza-sderot.arte.tv web site as daily 2-minute chronicles, the project has now become the subject of a documentary that portrays lives devastated by the conflict.
    The inhabitants of Gaza suffered from the effects of the siege, from fuel and drug shortages, while the inhabitants of Sderot were traumatised by the threats of random strikes from Qassam rockets.

    The chronicles showed the bitterness of daily life, but they were also chronicles of hope, of humour, of resistance to the unbearable. At the end of December 2008, once again war tore the region apart. Images of war seemed to dominate. But for those who saw them, no one can forget the pre-war chronicles of Gaza-Sderot.

    How did this miracle happen when the country is still at war, and the North is bowed down under the weight of a communist dictatorship?

    After the success of the first season of THE GREAT GREEK MYTHS, we bring you the next chapter! An adaptation of Homer's Iliad. An epic poem which recounts the Trojan War.
     
     

    The Greeks cross the sea to lay siege to Troy and reclaim the beautiful Helen, abducted from her husband King Menelaus of Sparta by Prince Paris of Troy. After a ten-year siege of the city walls of Troy, the war turns in the Greeks favour thanks to the heroics of the famous Achilles. But were these mortals really the heroes of this war or were they merely pawns in the hands of the Gods?
    Following on from the first season, each episode alternates scenes of original animation created in 3D and a rich iconography chosen from the whole of art history, from Antiquity to the Modern era.

    The working class has played an essential part of European countries’ history – through revolutions, wars and social progress.  In 4 episodes of a spectacular tale, this show reminds us of what our societies owe to the workers’ movements and its struggles.
     

    The story begins in the 18th century. But their fight carries on today. Much of our current democracies’ institutions and values flow from older working class demands: universal suffrage or social solidarity are some of its most telling examples. Our culture – the way we dress, the songs we listen to, the movies we watch and the mass-media themselves – heavily relies on the workers’ erstwhile popular culture. Finally, all across Asia, Africa and Latin America, millions of women and men experience lives similar to the 18th and 19th centuries’ European working class. We will bring out the present’s ever looming shadow by constantly flowing back and forth between history and current situations. Those contemporary testimonies and photographs will help us gather the threads of memory between yesterday and nowadays together again.

    Over the course of a century, these images narrate the thwarted destiny of a pivotal nation, caught between archaism and modernity, secularity and religion, submissiveness and independence, East and West.

    A crossroad country, a nation divided, Iran is on the rise after a century of political upheaval. The nuclear crisis has revealed to the world its goal: to become a world power.

    For the first time ever, this film will look back over 100 years of Iranian history to the veritable wellsprings of the confrontation between Iran and the western powers.

    From 1908 to 2008, from the discovery of oil reserves to the nuclear crisis, we present a spectacular voyage to the heart of a country and a people, a colorful fresco focusing on real-life stories, unveiling archive images and authentic documents, and giving eyewitnesses - Iranian men and women - a chance to speak. A crisscrossing gaze, free of both prejudice and compromise: how they see us, how we see them.

    Access has been granted to Iranian national audiovisual archives. Rare footage has also been collected in various sources across Europe, Russia and the United States.
