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...
