INGMAR BERGMAN Behind the mask

« Outside, there is the big world. Sometimes, our little world manages to reflect the big world, and it is then that we can understand the big world a little better.» The only director to have been awarded the Palme des Palmes at Cannes, Ingmar Bergman can be seen as the uncontested master of «cinéma d’auteur». Tarantino, Woody Allen or Michael Haneke regard the director as the absolute film-maker, whose life and work have no equivalent. Ten years after his death, as we prepare to celebrate the centenary of his birth, this film recounts a single year in Bergman’s life. A pivotal year, a crazy year, in which he would die, and then be reborn thanks to his passion for cinema, and one film ersona. Directed by Manuelle Blanc Written by Maria Sjöberg roducer amera ucida

CLAUDIO MONTEVERDI

THE BLUE DANUBE

n ebruary , , in the hall of mirrors of the palace of the Duke of Mantua, an art form which remains very much alive to this day was invented and which for some is considered to be the most complete form of art the pera. he craftsman of this innovation was the court composer, Claudio Monteverdi, whose rfeo was the first masterpiece of its genre. ew are the players in history gone by whose lives have been as well documented as that of Monteverdi. What remains of him for us are papers, places and, above all, his music. In a continuous dialog between the music being played by musicians of today and the illustrated narrati e of the composer s life, the film retraces the ourney of a man who redefined fore er our representations of reality.

The Blue Danube is in itself the expression of the universe of the waltz. None other than The Blue Danube can embody the essence of the waltz so eloquently and precisely in form and spirit. ut can this alone suffice to e plain the worldwide success this waltz has met with ndeed not the waltz is also popular for a certain amount of historical, diplomatic and political reasons. he film will guide us through the origins of this musical piece, its history and how it was miraculously saved from disappearance and will show us how, very early on, the waltz became part of History and has remained there ever since. Finally, we will illustrate its e er-growing success with specialists and the greater public alike.

Seen from the skies, the war is re ealed in a new light. t began in when Guernica and the Chinese cities of Chongqing and Shanghai were devastated by bombs and ended in August when the Americans dropped the first atomic on iroshima and agasaki. t is not a tale of in asion and great battles, but an account of a clearly-defined programme of destruction, an incendiary science that was continually re-in ented and perfected through the global conflict. t is this little-known war that we shall recount. he story of an insane race for power and destruction, which drained the wealth of nations, mobilized the most brilliant scientific minds, and left a world in ruins. n this new form of warfare, the first ictims were civilians. The world that emerged from WWII would be changed for ever. A film by mmanuel lanchard

MAGDA GOEBBELS

1944, OPERATION FORTITUDE

The first lady of the third Reich

Documentary series ‘History’s greatest lies’

In Adolf Hitler’s bunker in Berlin, bombarded day and night by the Russian army, an elegant woman of around 40 poisons her 6 children before committing suicide. Her name was Magda Goebbels, and she was the wife of the notorious and sinister propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, and the Third Reich’s true First Lady. From this inaugural scene, this documentary, in the form of a psychological thriller, attempts to understand how Magdalena Friedlander became Magda Goebbels. A woman who bore the name of the Jewish step-father who raised her. A woman who married a wealthy automobile magnate with libertarian ideas, before divorcing him, and becoming an emancipated young woman at the height of fashion. For Magda Goebbels is as much a product of history - that of Nazism - as of her own tortured psyche.

6th June 1944. The beaches of Normandy are the scene of the most spectacular military operation of all time: the Normandy Landings, a key moment that will alter the course of the Second World War. They owe their success, though, to a gigantic lie: a phantom army, armed with inflatable tanks and wooden rifles; but also to a whole network of double agents, most of them entirely fictitious. And leading this campaign of disinformation - the most sophisticated ever dreamt up – is one man: Winston Churchill. A film by Sonia Gonzalez

ow many of us now know that between o ember and ay , thousand people suffered confinement through simple administrati e decision one of these people had committed a crime or any offence, the only reason that made them prisoners was the fact that they supposedly represented potential danger to the State or to society. They were many to populate rench camps Spanish epublicans, Germans and Austrians, French Communists, to whom were soon added foreign ews or Gypsies, and later, at the iberation, in ma ority suspected collaborationists but also, which is of less common knowledge, black market traffickers and also German ci ilians.

After various leftist parties forged an alliance to fend off the fascist tide embodied by Mussolini’s Italy and Hitler’s Germany, which threatened peace and democracy on the continent, several European countries concurrently adopted a Popular Front political strategy. This led to an unprecedented mobilization of the masses, labor unions, and intellectuals. In France, Austria, Spain, Belgium and Greece the antifascist battle became a top priority. Comprised of high uality archi e footage from all o er urope, and ne erbefore-heard audio recordings, this film retraces the birth and strategy of urope s opular ronts from to .

POLITICAL LEADER

ELEANOR ROOSEVELT

SHIMON PERES

Between 1932 and 1945, Eleanor Roosevelt invested the function of First Lady with an unprecedented political dimension. She would become the inspiration and gurehead for a new generation of women determined to carve out a place in a political world reserved exclusively for men. 50 years after her death, the testimony of those who knew her best enables us to gain a clearer understanding of her exceptional life: that of a woman in love, at the head of the world’s greatest country. For behind her extraordinary public life, she concealed a personal secret : her passionate relationship with the nation’s best-known female reporter, Lorena Hickok.

For the departure of Shimon Peres from his position as President of Israel, an intimate face-to-face with an icon of that era. Shimon Peres was one of the last great actors on the international political stage. He was also an amazing storyteller who knows how to captivate his audience with his words. We have spent two weeks with Peres in Tel Aviv, where he told them his life story. The story of the little Jewish boy who emigrated to Palestine in 1934 is a magnificent tale in and of itself. But then came his meetings with Ben Gurion, Sadat, Kennedy, Bill Clinton... In this intimate face-toface talk, Shimon Peres tells his story.

MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATÜRK

THE LAST DICTATORSHIPS IN EUROPE

Fractured by the renewal of the Kurd conflict and the ongoing threat of Jihadists from Syria, Turkey is undergoing a period of uncertainty and intense political and social tension. The failed coup d’etat of the night of July 16th 2016 by a part of the army, intended to «restore freedom and democracy» is highly illustrative of the divisions within Turkish society, increasingly subjected to the growing authority of President Erdogan and his Islamo-conservative party, the AKP. So what remains today of the heritage of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish republic, and a fervent advocate of a secular state and social progress? Put together chronologically, the film alternates between archive footage and interviews with both French and Turkish historians. Asked to consider the significance of the Atatürk myth, the historians analyze key points in his life, the foundations of his character, the role he played both in Turkish public opinion and within the political parties that still lay claim to him today.

The last three decades in our “iron” 20th century brought unexpected but gratifying advances in democracy all around the globe. Several dictatorships fell or were wiped out. In the 1970s, outdated regimes that were still oppressing people in southern Europe. Our film will take a look at this struggle by comparing and contrasting the case of three countries: Spain, Greece and Portugal. While all three are quite close in terms of their geography, history and culture, and all three joined the European Community after building democratic nations, each of these countries has trod its own unique path.

THE TOUR: THE LEGEND OF THE RACE

he Austrian freedi er, erbert itsch, defies the depths of the ocean and goes from one amazing feat to another. He has held the world record for freedi ing since meters he ritish director Alexander Abela, who is also a freediver, shadowed him for many months while he trained, and also during international competitions in Greece and the Bahamas. In order to reach these extreme depths, Herbert draws on the breathing techniques of marine mammals and forces himself to do hours of training every day. At one with the sub-a uatic world, he is looking to go beyond Man’s limits rather than just break records. His dream is to go deeper than meters

he our - he egend of the ace sheds a new light on the last years of the our de rance, now considered one of the world’s most popular sporting events. The Tour has lived through a century of rich history, with ups and downs, triumphs and scandals, continually evolving with the times. Throughout it all one key characteristic has remained the incredible power of identifi cation the public has with the our cyclists, mythical figures that seem accessible and inaccessible at the same time. n order to reflect this human dimension of the our, the film tells the story through a selection of its emblematic heroes. Emblematic of the Tour, but also emblematic of an era, embodying in the fi lm their generation Coppi, Bobet, Anquetil, Poulidor, Merckx, Hinault, Indurain, Armstrong... ully archi e-based and colourised, “The Tour” cleverly weaves together all these individual stories with the story of the Tour de France itself, with the goal of creating a timeless and epic sports saga.

THE SHEIKH’S STUD FARM

RAYMOND POULIDOR

The crown prince of Dubai’s livestock consists of four thousand thoroughbred horses. The emir spends lavish amounts in order to shine at the races. This is the portrait of a man who is mad about horses, and who has the money to indulge his passion. Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai, has only one passion thoroughbreds. or the past twenty or so years, he has been investing his fortune in the most beautiful endurance racehorses. He is capable of splashing out up to ten million euros for a yearling, and he dominates the world market. His stock is the largest in the world, and is made up of around four thousand thoroughbreds, reared and trained in the most notable European stud farms, or on his personal property, at the Godolphin stables, in the middle of the desert.

or a whole generation of rench people, aymond oulidor has been and remains a myth. “Poupou”, as he was commonly referred to, always placed but his name never made it on the list of winners, in spite of climbing eight podiums in fourteen competitions. Outclassed by the two super champions Jacques Anquetil and Eddy Merckx, both quintuple victors of the Tour de rance, aymond oulidor will at least find a little consolation in the fact that these setbacks only served to strengthen his aura.
