La Yegros, the Argentine diva queen of Nu Cumbia, is back in Paris to present her new album "Suelta", produced by the legendary Argentine producer King Coya (musical director and composer of Fuerza Bruta and De La Guarda).
Promising a truly incredible concert, the singer loosens up the rustiest bodies, radiating energy with infectious joy as though spitting fire. The fusion of musical genres, shaman, cumbia, carnavalito mixed with Andean folklore, passed through the mill of Jamaican...

LES DISSONANCES : TITAN // 106' - 2018

Mahler's symphonic music is a new challenge for Les Dissonances, currently in residence at the Dijon Opera: they approach the repertoire without a conductor, and each musician bears part of the collective artistic responsibility. Mahler's First Symphony is a leap into a new world that is both familiar and disturbing.
Recorded on the 24th October 2018 at the Koningin Elisabethsaal in Antwerp
- Johannes Brahms - violin concerto in D major op.77 - 43min

THE GOLDBERG VARIATIONS WITH BÉATRICE MARTIN // 69' - 2018

Béatrice Martin is a gifted harpsichordist, noted by international critics for her delicate touch and technical mastery.
Written for a two-manual harpsichord, J. Bach's Goldberg Variations are extremely difficult to play and incredibly rich in harmonies, rhythms and technical refinements.
The abbey of Port Royale des Champs is a place that invites daydreaming, its stone and wooden construction providing sublime acoustics, especially for the harpsichord.

LANNERS DE LIÈGE, KNOWN AS BOULI // 57' - 2018

Portrait of the Belgian actor and director Bouli Lanners, whose films are about rambling, the passing landscape, the unforeseen, unexpected wanderings and his roadside encounters.
We filmed Bouli Lanners, in such a way as to fall into step with him, keeping pace with his movements, his rhythm, his breathing.
From Liège to Brussels, via Namur, expanding upon the places traversed by his stories and obsessions, his friendships and encounters, our protagonist tells us about himself,...

JEAN BOUISE, A VERY DISCREET HERO // 52' - 2018

Portrait of the French actor Jean Bouise.
Drooping eyelids behind thick glasses, a bushy moustache hiding an irregular set of teeth... A face that everyone knows, even if they can’t always put a name to it.

Jean Bouise was a supporting actor of the first order, able to play everything from classic roles to bastards, ordinary Frenchman and "best pals”.
Gifted, generous and committed, he spent four decades in the service of the greatest and most illustrious directors...

Robert Descharnes and his son Nicolas are the only experts in the world to be unanimously recognized and authorised to formally authenticate a Dali.

Their assessments and numerous anecdotes give us an unexpected and unique glimpse into a particular, historical...

BRUNO PODALYDES, THE ILLUSIONIST // 52' - 2017

A documentary portrait of the French director and actor Bruno Podalydès. Since Versailles Rive Gauche, the filmmaker has given us "comedies d'auteur", sometimes burlesque, but always deep and touching. Writing his own films, he creates a very personal universe with his cinema family of actors, producers and technicians.
With Bruno Podalydès, seemingly normal situations degenerate very quickly, embroiling the characters in crazy physical, social and emotional intrigues that soon become...

BIGUINE - INHERITANCE // 53' - 2016

Martinican musical history is largely marked by colonisation, slavery, the wars of influence between the old European colonial empires and the eruption of the Montagne Pelée in 1902.
The development of its music, like its population, has followed a historical evolution. Martinique music has its origins in music from Africa and Europe. It was then enriched by its proximity to the other islands of the Caribbean and the United States.
One of the major musical trends of Martinique is...

TOD BROWNING, THE GAME OF ILLUSIONS // 60' - 2016

A portrait of the "Edgar Allan Poe of the cinema", the director of the mythical Freaks and the first Dracula “talkie” with Bela Lugosi, through his films, which were thought lost and recently found.

Although the director's two best-known films are talkies (FREAKS and DRACULA), Tod Browning was mainly a filmmaker of the silent movie era, since the vast majority of his films have no sound. Yet his silent films are totally unknown, while many of them are masterpieces.

BERNARD MENEZ, THE FLAMBOYAND // 52' - 2015

Portrait of the French actor Bernard Menez.
Menez is a case study for criticism, his filmography remaining an enigma for those who make a profession of applying labels, because many of his films feature in film club programmes.
Awkward, offbeat… Bernard Menez wields his sword with his "unintentional" humour, both in films that are “so bad they’re good” and arthouse cinema.

JACQUES TOURNEUR, THE MEDIUM : FILMING THE INVISIBLE // 60' - 2015

There’s a mystery surrounding Jacques Tourneur. Where does this belief in the invisible world and the supernatural come from in a director so firmly anchored in reality?
When Jacques Tourneur said in an interview that many people live in fear and don’t know it who could have imagined that, despite his apparent serenity, his films are a way to exorcise the constant fear in which he lives himself?
Along with a portrait of Jacques Tourneur as seen through his films, this documentary...
