    We are very proud to announce that our film «THE TRUE STORY OF KING TUT'S TREASURE» has just won the Price of the best film for its scientific contribution at the 17th International Festival of the Archeology Film - ICRONOS

    Almost 100 years after the discovery of King's Tut's Tomb, it is time to tell the story in a new light. This film uses 2D and 3D imagery to reconstruct the tomb, the mummy, the funerary objects and the topography of the famous valley of the Kings. 

    International Festival of the Archeology Film - ICRONOS in Bordeaux (France) - 2020.

  • Our report «SYRIA: TRAPPED IN IDLIB» directed by Yaman Khatib, Fadi Al-Halabi et Suzanne Allant won the 1st prize in the large format TV category of the 27th Bayeux Calvados-Normandie Prize for war reporters.

    9 years after the dawn of the Syrian revolution, the rebels are making their last stand in Idlib. The region has been embroiled in heavy fighting for months.

    Prevented from fleeing by the Turkish army on one side and the Syrian government forces on the other, civilians are trying to survive in a conflict that they have nothing to do with. The Syrian army is supported by Russia and Iran. It has been relentlessly bombing this territory to reclaim it, civilians becoming an acceptable “collateral damage” in the endeavor.  The United Nations calls it “the greatest humanitarian horror story of the twenty-first century”. The number of people displaced by the fighting since December has now reached 1 million – 80 % of whom are women and children.
    These people have lost all hope that their pleas for help can ever be heard. A team of Syrian journalists went to meet them on the paths to exile.

  • Our documentary "THE MYSTERY OF THE RASCAR CAPAC MUMMY" has just received the Jules Verne Award at the Festival du Film d'Archéologie d'Amiens.

    This science documentary is led like a police investigation into pre-Colombian mummies from Chile and Peru, one of whom, RASPAR CAPAC, inspired The Seven Crystal Balls from The Adventures of Tintin by famous Belgian cartoonist Hergé. 

  • We are happy to announce that the newly restored MUHAMMAD ALI, THE GREATEST (1974) has been selected in the Revivals section at the 58th New York Film Festival !

    William Klein’s incomparable documentary is much more than a boxing film chronicling the fights of Sonny Liston vs Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali vs Sonny Liston, and George Foreman vs Muhammad Ali. The director portrays the famous and infamous boxer and the world circling around him for over a decade. What Klein captures on camera in regards to race relations is powerful, exposing shameless bigotry and frightfully timely attitudes.

  • We are very proud to announce that our film THE BLOB: A GENIUS WITHOUT A BRAIN has just won the Audience Award at the 15th Edition of the Pariscience festival! 

    Here comes the Blob! More commonly known as slime-mold, this extraordinary one-billion-year-old organism challenges our worldview on living matter and is about to revolutionize the concept of brainless intelligence. 

    Blending science fiction, animation, the beauty of nature, humor and cutting-edge science, this is a quirky trip exploring this most surprising and mind-blowing organism. Neither animal, nor plant, nor fungi, the blob is one giant single cell whose amazing capacities are leading pioneer scientists to a very new world – that of brainless intelligence. 

    Shot on 3 continents, the film is a scientific investigation shaped like a thriller, following top international experts from Europe, Japan and the US, through their major discoveries, and offering a mind-blowing experience into the very roots of cognition.
