    For 60 years, Fidel Castro was a thorn in the side of USA and a symbol of anti-imperialist struggle. Castro and his compatriots played a prominent role on the international stage and contributed to changing the world. 

    Award-winning producers Temps Noir (Cuba, an African Odyssey, Africa, history of a continent) and Brook Lapping (Obama Years, Putin, Russia and the West, Iran and the West) have put their talents together to produce a fascinating insider account of 60 years of Cuba’s history and its place in the world.
     
    Castro and his team changed the world in a way that was inconceivable for a mere Island in the Caribbean. By sending troops to fight alongside left--‐wing revolutionaries in Africa, and using soft power to influence other regimes in Latin America, Cuba–in Fidel’s words–"was a small country which behaved as if it had the resources of a great power". Moreover, he managed to get away with it for more than three decades.
     
    For the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution in 2019, with views from every side–the Cubans, the Russians, the Americans and the rest – this film will reveal the history of Cuba as never before.

    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.

    This film retraces the pharaohs’ – from Ramses II to Cleopatra – and the Romans’ steps to better understand the turbulent history of their temples up until their rescues. Thanks to an unprecedented international mobilization, discover an exceptional heritage saved at the cost of a "pharaonic" trip.

    When they returned from southern Egypt, travelers reported the existence of temples between the Nubian desert and the Nile. Majestic stone colossi emerging from the sands kept the doors and their secrets. For centuries, Abu Simbel, Dendur, Amada and other monuments were victims of looting, earthquakes, desert encroachment and floods, only to end up almost being swallowed up by the waters in the 20th century. In 1954, the announcement of the construction of a dam threatened the whole of Nubia and more than 20 ancient shrines. Some temples were dismantled in a hurry and relocated to artificial islands, others were even shipped abroad in places such as Madrid, Turin or even New York. Former construction site workers attest to the grueling working conditions during operations. We also present archives revealing the ingenious rescue plans explained in 3D animations.

    April 2016, an earthquake shakes the art world. A masterpiece has just been uncovered. Today, we know it’s Caravaggio’s Judith and Holofernes. For two years we followed the countless upheavals among experts caused by its authentication and determination of its worth. 

    We went behind the scenes of the closely knitted world of art experts to understand the secrets behind the assessment of an art piece that mixes science, historical analysis and intuition. The film offers a dive into an extraordinary investigation: Who is Caravaggio? Why does his name panic the market? Why are his paintings worth so much? What does this painting represent? How and who decides on an attribution? For two years, we had the rare privilege to follow the preparation of a public auction. In June 2019, a major auction is organized near where the painting was discovered. International buyers from around the world will gather there and this could turn into the art sale of the century.

    This film is an historical investigation of radioactivity. From the Curies to Fukushima, from the bombings to nuclear disasters, it will make sense of the accounts by victims, the soldiers and children contaminated by nuclear fallout. It will also reveal the lies conveyed by the world of the atom.

    The stories of nuclear workers, the irradiated of Hiroshima, the American soldiers of the "USS Ronald Reagan" and the children of Fukushima enable us to measure the indifference and cynicism of the military and civil powers, and the arrogance of the nuclear industry.

    She is renowned worldwide for her fashion sense that combines chic and casual. Isabel Marant is pivotal in the world of fashion. She dresses up "real girls", not fantasies. We will follow her from the first beginnings of a collection to its realization on the podium.

    The discreetly sexy look of millions of ambassadors seduced by these clothes made for everyday life riffs off the exuberant shows of the fashion week.
    Praised by icons such as Kate Moss, Juliette Binoche, Diane Kruger, Gigi and Bella Hadid, among others, she has kept her distance from the star system and spends what little free time she has with her family or her childhood friends in a small country house without water or electricity.
    She is a businesswoman at the head of an empire, but she is also a self-made woman who defends her own vision of the world and fashion. She describes herself as a hardworking woman with a craftsman's soul. As Marie Rucki – her former teacher at Studio Berçot – tells it: "She doesn't make fashion for fashion, she makes the fashion she loves, independent".

    In all the corners of the world, the name Christian Louboutin brings to mind a pair of vertiginous high-heels and a bright-red sole. He’s one of the most fascinating designer of our time and he raised the shoe to the status of an absolute icon, laying out a canvas where multiple influences cross one another.

    The main emphasis of the documentary will be on Christian Louboutin’s creative journey, in particular at the time of the preparation of the first major exhibition dedicated to him in France, at the Palais de la Porte Dorée. With Christian Louboutin, of course, but also his closest colleagues in the Louboutin’s house,  his  daily  partners  of  creation,  all across the  world (Indians designers, Bhutan’s craftsman, Italians creators, artists), the participants of the exhibition (David Lynch, Lisa Reihana), and some of his clients (Dita Von Teese…).

    For the Eiffel Tower's 130th birthday, this movie recounts the incredible epic of its construction. It was erected in record time at the end of the 19th century – it was the largest and craziest building ever built at the time. Delve into the Eiffel Tower's breathtaking history, from its construction to the present day – thanks to spectacular images and an original 3D vision that retraces the main stages of its construction step by step.

    Pascal Ory has dedicated his life to the Eiffel Tower. This historian has spent several decades understanding and deciphering the construction of the iconic tower. Two years ago he embarked on an incredible project: with one of the greatest specialists in 3D animation, he has been recreating the erection of the Iron Lady in moving images – step by step. The history of its construction has been anything but an easy task. Gustave Eiffel, its brilliant inventor, had numerous and powerful opponents. But against the odds, the first foundation holes were dug in 1887. In just two years, what was certainly one of humankind's most beautiful creations had been completed. Its inauguration took place during the 1889 Universal Exhibition.
     
    Gustave Eiffel then fought tooth and nail to save it, because it was to be destroyed after twenty years! Discover the amazing tale behind the emblematic monument. We will also discover the Eiffel Tower of today – the French symbol that attracts nearly 10 million visitors each year.
     
    We will witness its stripping to find the Tower's original color pigment – it has been repainted every seven years since its construction, in accordance with Gustave Eiffel's wishes.
     
    And enjoy a grandiose privilege: we will be behind the scenes alongside the lovers of the Tower for the preparation of a fabulous show for its 130th anniversary. This 52-minute film is a great opportunity to admire the beautiful Iron Lady in a way you have never seen it before.

    In the Darhat valley of northern Mongolia, the horses of the nomadic tribes are disappearing. Bandits are stealing them to sell to Russian abattoirs for just a few rubles. But Shukhert, a crime-fighting Darhat horseman, is relentlessly pursuing them to the Taiga mountain range of Mongolia, on the border with Siberia.

    When his white stallion disappeared, Shukhert embarked upon a race against time to track down the bandits, find his horse, and bring it home before winter.
    In this documentary, like a Western set in the East, life seems stranger than fiction – despite this being an absolutely authentic tale.
     
    Horse thefts are commonplace in this region, each triggering epic hunts across the spectacular steppes of northern Mongolia.
     
    From Buddhism to Shamanism, from horses to reindeer, and from hunters to those looking for gold, his journey is punctuated by a range of encounters that help explain the diversity of this complex region with its ethnic and socio-economic tensions.
     
    Thanks to his knowledge of the Mongolian territory, culture, and language, and his extensive experience of the region over the past 10 years, Hamid Sardar takes us on a journey into a world accessible only to a rare few, where safety and justice are pushed to their limits.
