    “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.

    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.

    A real-life or fictitious hero, Robin Hood is first and foremost a cultural reference. Everyone can identify with this character’s values and commitment, and it has been so for some 800 years.
    A review of this legendary figure’s impact.

    He is a hero celebrated on all continents across all media; an icon of popular culture, a model of virtue and commitment for all generations. But the documentaries about him are scarce. In these uncertain times, it is high time to revisit this star of social justice.
    Robin never out of fashion: oppressors and oppressed are always in the news. This film tells the fascinating saga of a popular and revolutionary icon present throughout all media; from children’s songs to literature, movies, TV, comics and, more recently, video games. The champion of the poor appeals to all generations, cultures and regions of the world.

    An aviation pioneer and an airmail carrier hero, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry rose to world fame with “The Little Prince”, which continues to be one of the best-selling books in the world.

    During his lifetime, Saint-Exupéry dreamed of a better world. His startling death and his commitment to the point of sacrifice reveal a heroism that make him one of the last great romantics. “To be a man is, precisely, to be responsible. It is to feel, when setting one’s stone, that one is contributing to the building of the world”. Extract from “Wind, Sand and Stars”

    Albert Camus is today's most widely read 20th century French writer. For the celebration in 2013 of the centenary of his birth, this documentary goes in search of his impassioned readers.

    Camus' admirers form a vast "community" that extends far beyond borders. A cheerful and improbable community made up of people, unknowingly, from different walks of life, including singers (The Cure, Patti Smith...), a Breton priest, an American abolitionist, a Chicago attorney, a Japanese calligrapher and a dancer from Yaoundé.

    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.
