    This documentary series will tell the story of intimate and tumultuous love stories in the context of art history. A love story is a fascinating detour that can lead us to discover and rediscover an artistic journey and the works that are born from its romantic encounters. 

    The series brings us into the foot steps of Amedao Modigliani and Jeanne Hébuterne, Lee Miller and Man Ray or Gerda Taro and Robert Capa who, together, photograph the Spanish civil war, in a communion of romantic, political and artistic commitment.
    This love story is an excuse to narrate the lives of artists, their neuroses and narcissism, and to confront them to their alter ego, the other, their double.
    Each of the couples of this collection answers the same questions : is love compatible with creation ? Can artists reveal themselves through romantic passion ? Does love bring a renewed energy to Art ?

    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”

    He is a super hero who never goes out of fashion. He is exotic, entertaining and highly accessible. The film recounts the circumstances surrounding the birth of the character, the reasons for his success, and how did each generation re-invent and re-interpret him.

    Tarzan was born in 1912 in an American newspaper, penned by Edgar Rice Burrough. The young writer was far from imagining that he had just created one of the major characters of the 20th century.
    This key character of popular culture, known all over the world, has become a myth: 28 novels translated into 56 languages and sold 50 million copies, 15 000 comic strips, 200 films or episodes of television series…

    Far from the frenzy of urban life, DESTINATIONS is an invitation to enjoy the simple pleasures of traveling to the four corners of the world to discover places that inspired the great artists, resulting in an exchange between a land, a town, a landscape and a work of art.

    The Provence of Cézanne, the Brazil of Stefan Zweig, the Kenya of Karen Blixen, the Catalonia of Salvador Dali, or the Japan of Katsushika Hokusai. The series will also take in places fashioned by mankind which have become legendary in their own right, such as Jerusalem, Harar in Ethiopia, the hanging gardens of Singapore, and the iconic Route 66.
    DESTINATIONS tells how these places have evolved through history, and which cultures shaped their character, their monuments, their music and their gastronomy. In 13 minutes, these films combine learning with the pleasure of delightful images and unusual encounters with local figures and artistic sensibilities. This is an invitation on a slow voyage, to satisfy an urge for adventure, with some enlightening stopovers to fire the curiosity, inspiring one to pack one’s bags and immerse oneself in the experience.
