    For the past two years, Russian hackers have been on the front page of Western media. On the international scene, they have become the bad guy. Russian hackers are the new symbol and the figurehead of an aggressive Russia that is not content to spy but to attack. 

    In the United States, they are accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign by hacking emails from the American Democratic Party. In Kiev, Ukraine, cyberattacks wreak havok. The culprits are designated: Russia and its mercenaries, hackers. But who are they really? What logic do they respond to and who controls them? In this parallel reality, where spies, paranoid and discreet geeks compete for territory, the film tells an invisible war, where viruses are terrifying weapons and information a key issue. A war that can destabilize our world, touch all of us and where Russia advances its pawns with determination.

    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.

    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.

    Every year in Tangbyon, an important ritual sees thousands of Burmans come to ask their mediums to dance, so they may contact the Nats, spirits that are able to offer them a better future

    Daw Kyar Ma has been taking part in this ritual for more than 20 years, but this year, she has come to ask the Nats to heal her husband who is having problems with his pancreas.
     
    Medium Ko Myint Thu will dance for her and transmit her prayer to the Nats.
    In Myanmar, most mediums are men, transvestites, or homosexuals. Literally, “Nat Kadaw” means “husband of Nat”. In this country, where homosexuality is still illegal, the ritual provides a space where homosexuals, transvestites and transgender people can exist without hiding.

    Every year on 24 May, traveling folk from all around Europe come to Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in southern France for a great festive ritual to honor Saint Sara, their patron, who was a persecuted servant. The travelers identify with her.

    For a week, between 8-10,000 travelers flock to this town in the Camargue, moving into the streets, squares, and seafront.
    The Pilgrimage of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer is the most important religious act for the Gypsy community. The welcome they receive in many places is very poor, so having the opportunity to meet up with other travelers to pray in their own way and complete their devotions is very important to them. This is a ritual about identity where Gypsy pride can be expressed.

    Every May, thousands of Quechuas, farming people of the high plateaus, converge on Macha for what is no doubt one of the most spectacular and violent rituals in America: Tinku.
     
     

    Tinku is a fertility ritual in the form of a fight. The blood shed is supposed to feed Pachamama, the Earth mother. She is responsible for good harvests, fertility amongst the women, and an abundance of lamas in the herd. This ritual was directly inherited from the Incas who reigned on this earth more than 500 years ago. Hand-to-hand combats were already organized to spill blood and fertilize the Pachamama. Augustino is 34, and single, and this year is participating in his 15th Tinku. Although men die every year during the fights in Macha, nothing and nobody will stop Augustino from fighting.

    Wale is still considered to be a child in his tribe, but at age 20, he is now old enough to face the challenge that will make him a man. Ukuli Bula is a bull jumping ceremony. The idea is to jump three times over a series of bulls lined up in a row, without falling over.

    If the young man, or Ukuli fails, he will be mocked by the village and will not be able to marry.
     
    Khaya, Wale’s little sister, is also undergoing a trial. Hamar tradition says that she must prove her devotion to her brother by having her back whipped. The day of the ceremony, the young women, friends and family of the Ukuli go to the site of the ritual, singing and dancing. Then, the whipping starts.
     
    The young women tease them men until they agree to whip them. For Hamar women, this is both proof of personal courage, and a mark of love for the Ukuli. Finally, it’s time to jump. The cattle are lined up, flank to flank, held by the horns. Now the Ukuli will know if he’ll become a man or not.
