    In 2012, the United States launched a huge military operation in Uganda and the Central African Republic, to capture Africa's most wanted warlord, Joseph Kony. 

    A manhunt that lasted 5 years and cost over 700 million dollars, but Kony was never found. Was the US army really looking for him? Or was the operation a cover up for other activities in this very strategic part of Africa?

    Even in wars, there are rules. One of them, universally recognized, is not to target civilians. What is the situation today? How are these "laws" applied practice in countries like Ukraine, Iraq and Turkey where civil war rage?

    "Laws of war" takes us to the heart of these laws. Increasing numbers of armed groups, cross-border conflicts, killer robots, the influence of religion on the rules of engagement… Although the number of soldiers killed in combat has fallen dramatically since the end of the Second World War, civilians are now the primary victims of conflicts which ride roughshod over the rules and regulations.

    North Korea does indeed exist beyond the totalitarian varnish covering it. This movie sets out to meet the real North Koreans. We will observe this singular society and discover what makes them tick. 

    We simply need to understand their lives – which is actually quite the uneasy task. Following the North Korean people's daily lives we discover an exotic, surprising life that is often rather funny – far from the military and dogmatic seriousness of the regime.

    A documentary thriller about one of the world’s most profitable illegal trades: Rhinoceros horn. At 50,000 euros per kilo, it sells for a higher price than gold or cocaine... When crushed into a powder and mixed with alcohol, it is said to be a miracle cure.

    Trafficking has spread to all continents and threatens the biodiversity of our planet, along with the national and economic security of multiple countries.
    This investigation reveals the underside of this high-stakes battle to save the rhinoceros and how – all around the world – detectives, scientists and police officers sometimes risk their lives to take on the criminals behind this trade. Using methods straight out of a spy novel, they track suspects and infiltrate the sophisticated crime gangs who threaten the species with extinction.

    To improve its own health, Big Tech has decided to take over ours. Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and many other digital corporations have already started defrauding our medical data and replacing national health structures by mining their users’ personal data.

    Through artificial intelligence and their boundless capacity for innovation, they have inserted themselves into a failing health-care sector, which they see as just the ultimate market to conquer.
    Google sorts patients in British emergency rooms. Apple takes the world's pulse, and has promised to make improving public health "its greatest contribution to mankind." Facebook has its own Zuckerberg Hospital and shares its users' "secret medical information" with the pharmaceutical industry. As for Amazon, Jeff Bezos's company has started delivering medicine, and is entering the medical-insurance market.
    Is our health the next sector facing Uberization? Will nations be able to protect their citizens from the maneuvers of the Big Four?

    Gentle spouses, housewives confined to housework, sex slaves. It has long been thought that women in the Islamic State were only victims forced to obey their husband, brother or father. This overly reductive image does not reflect reality.

    Like men and children, it appears that Daesh has fully integrated these women, Arabs or Westerners, into its mode of operation. For two years, we met with a dozen women of ISIS who played an active role in the terrorist organization. Most of them are still in Iraq or Syria. Some have escaped to neighbouring Turkey. All of them hide and try to forget a painful and often shameful past. Among them are members of the Hisba, the Islamic police known for its cruelty, women of fighters who followed their men out of love or coercion, mothers, torturers, nurses, teachers. All these women, after months of denial, fear and hesitation, ended up talking without restraining. In the course of confidences is emerging a world of oppression, terror, privation, hypocrisy and regrets.
    “Woman of Isis” this new documentary film is the third part of a triptyque that tells what really was the Islamic State is really like from the inside, through the voice of its citizens, the very people who made it work. This time, the role of women is recounted through interviews mainly carried out in Raqqa and Mosul, the two capitals of the caliphate, left in ruins today.

    As the Calais jungle was set to be razed in October 2016, there were over 1900 unaccompanied minors stranded there - many of whom had a legal case to enter the UK. Sue fought to get these children recognised and their cases heard. 

    Young people had a legal case to be transferred to the UK under two pieces of EU and UK legislation. But as the film heartbreakingly tells, the UK government was not going to allow them to exercise these rights. But with the camp soon to go up in flames, could she do it in time? And what would happen to the children if not?

    In Moscow, religious power and political power work hand in hand in building Russia’s new ultra conservative and imperial identity. Kirill, the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church is Putin’s ally. He leads his church, influences Russian society and participates in international debates. 
     

    The Russian Church is back : helped by Putin who saw in this institution the useful cement of a Russia without future plan after the fall of Soviet Union, the church tries to impose its views on social issues in its country and wants to play a parallel diplomatic role abroad, to get back to its status under the Czars.  Exceptionally, Kirill, the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, has agreed on being filmed during a year, and takes us to meetings with Russian political leaders he invites in his Moscow cathedral, with the Palestinian president Mahmood Abbas, or above all with Putin, with who he parades ad infinitum. Their plan ?  Restore Holy Russia, propose a reactionary alternative to the western powers, that both denounce even to caricature.

    Who is Justin Trudeau? Mr Nice Guy welcoming syrian refugees and celebrating diversity, or your next door politician signing pipelines that are wrecking the canadian environment and trampling the rights of Canadian First Nations?

    By smartly combining the absence of ideology and the power of both data mining and digital campaigning Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau embodies the “XXIth century liberalus homo politicus”. The advent of Donald Trump has awaken a debate in Canada. Is this young, bright, politically correct and good looking Prime Minister well prepared to lead a fight of this magnitude?
