Bachar

Moi ou le chaos/The Master of the Chaos

A 60' & 90' Documentary Written and Directed by : Antoine Vitkine

Doing a portrait of Bashar al-Assad, the smartly turned-out dictator, talking about his career, getting into his head and understanding what he wants and where he comes from means getting interested in a man who has a partial hold on our fate. Daech, international Jihadism, chaos in the Middle East and the refugee crisis: all of these challenges that have an impact on us converge, at least partly, in Damascus.

To re-examine our ambiguous and risky relations with him is to try and understand our involvement in the Syrian tragedy, even look at our share of responsibility, for Bashar has always known how to play on our weaknesses, our temporizing and our naivety.

VENICE

Flamboyant to the End

Documentary 52'

Written by Leslie Grumberg & Laurence Thiriat

Directed by Laurence Thiriat

For centuries, Venice has been fascinating thousands of visitors.

Queen of the seaset in the midst of a marvelous architectural environment, it has shown over the centuries a rare concentration of artists who made her shine at the firmament.

In the 18th century, it’s still full of vitality and creativity.

Vivaldi, the Tiepolos, father and son, Canaletto, Longhi, Guardi, Goldoni and Casanova, to name only a few, all of them take part to this feverish activity that seizes the city.

Libertine and impertinent, Venice is “poco poco” getting intoxicated by too many parties and carnival excesses.

A slow agony that Napoleon will end up by delivering the coup de grace in 1798. The Venetian18th century resonates until now as the last rays of a long-lost age d’or.

 

De tous temps, Venise a fasciné.

Merveille d’architecture, reine des mers, elle concentre en son cœur les plus grands artistes, ceux qui vont faire rayonner son nom partout à travers le monde. Au XVIIIème siècle, elle est encore débordante de vitalité.

Les Vivaldi, Tiepolo père et fils, Canaletto, Longhi, Guardi ou encore Goldoni et Casanova, ils sont tous là pour participer à ce bouillonnement fiévreux qui s’empare de toute la cité.

Libertine et insolente, elle s’enivre de fêtes et de Carnaval pour sombrer doucement dans la plus joyeuse et le plus insouciante des agonies, avant que Napoléon ne lui donne le coup de grâce. Le XVIIIème siècle résonne comme les derniers feux d’une Venise qui tourne le chapitre des plus grands moments de son histoire.

GERSHWIN

The American Classic

Gershwin

The American Classic

Documentary 52'
Written and Directed by Jean-Frédéric Thibault

For the past 80 years, Rhapsody in Blue, Concerto in Fand Cuban Overture have been out of the repertory of the world's greatest orchestras.

For the past 80 years, Porgy & Bess has been a staple in the world's opera houses, and Summertime is one of the most famous tunes ever composed.

Starting in 2015, the musical comedy based on An American in Paris has been played by four different companies in alternation on the biggest music-hall stages in the world.

By now a "Classic", he is also one of the creators of the most famous of American musical comedies.

The very symbol of "made in the US" success, Gershwin created tailor-made music for the American continent based on multiple influences where each individual American can identify with part of their roots and each European their personal history.

Our story of George Gershwin is that of "inventing" a certain American culture that is attractive, uninhibited, resolutely modern and always innovative.

"True music must repeat the thought and aspirations of the people and the time.

My people are Americans and my time is today."

                                                                                        George Gershwin

Depuis 80 ans, Rapsodyin Blue, le Concerto pour piano et l’Ouverture Cubaine ne quittent le répertoire des plus grands orchestres du monde.

Depuis 80 ans, Porgyand Bessfait partie de la programmation des salles d’opéra dans le monde et Summertimereste l’un des airs les plus célèbres jamais composés.

Depuis 2015, la comédie musicale tirée de An American in Paris est jouée par quatre troupes en alternance, sur les plus grandes scènes de music-hall mondiales.

Plus que jamais, George Gershwin est à l’honneur dans le monde musical.

Devenu « classique », il est aussi l’un des créateurs des plus célèbres comédies musicales américaines.

Symbole absolu de la réussite « made in US », il su créer pour le continent américain une musique sur mesure, empreinte d’influences multiples, dans laquelle chaque américain peut retrouver une partie de ses propres racines et chaque européen son histoire personnelle.

Notre histoire de George Gershwin est l’histoire de « l’invention » d’une certaine culture américaine, séduisante, désinhibée, résolument moderne et toujours innovante.

« La musique doit refléter les idées et les aspirations des gens et de leur temps.

Pour moi, les gens, ce sont les Américains et le temps, c’est aujourd’hui.»                

                                                                                      George Gershwin

In Denmark, they put on weight and were able to overcome the horrors of the war.

Who was behind this organization?

Through amazing and numerous footage found in the cellar of a dead man, we will unveil this story, the story of a small country who chose to forget about its own wounds to help foreign children.
