  • IN BORIS JOHNSON’S MIND

    No one took him seriously; he was seen as a buffoon. Yet he was on the winning side with Brexit in 2016 and then triumphed in the December 2019 legislative elections.

    No one took him seriously; he was seen as a buffoon. Yet he was on the winning side with Brexit in 2016 and then triumphed in the December 2019 legislative elections.

    Boris Johnson is the UK's new strongman. And he is radically altering his country, leaving an indelible mark on it – for better or for worse. The British people and Europe's future for the next ten years hang on to this eccentric sad clown's decisions.
    With the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Kingdom is facing a major crisis on its own, without the European Union’s help, for the first time. Boris Johnson was hit directly by this crisis, spending a week in hospital in a critical condition. The other twenty-seven watch on as the first country to get out of the union is carving its own path – all while the terms of the divorce with the EU are not even negotiated yet.
    In 2020, in addition to the coronavirus crisis, the Prime Minister will have to square up against Brussels, pour oil on troubled waters regarding the Scottish and Irish desires for independence and obtain a free trade agreement with Donald Trump. He will have to pick his poison: alienating the EU by toddling into America's lap or, on the contrary, tread carefully around his European allies. These decisions will bind the UK and Europe for decades to come.
    Behind his veil of buffoonery, will Boris Johnson embrace the stature that befits a statesman or lead his country to disaster? At heart, is he the United Kingdom's gravedigger? Or is he a restorer of British greatness?

    From the American preparations to the capture of Saddam Hussein, this documentary takes a fresh look at the invasion of Iraq through the accounts of Iraqis.

    From previously unaired accounts of Iraqis, including former soldiers and leaders, civilians, future insurgents, journalists and opponents in exile, the film retraces, in minute detail, the critical year of the invasion, with as its counterpoint, the tales of members of the US military and reporters who were present during the intervention.
     
    In these previously unaired images, we discover US military operations from the inside, but also - and more importantly - scenes of splendour of a dictatorship caught up in lies and unprepared for war.
     
    By counterbalancing the official media scenario put forward by the Americans, this documentary provides an understanding of how, from an easy war in the face of a depleted country, the United States found themselves entangled in a civilian insurrection led by a disillusioned people, who they did not even attempt to understand and who they drove to revolt.

    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.

    They are the engineers, the computer scientists, the experts who have decided to put their tech skills to work for the populists who are taking over the world. “Hacking Democracy” puts the new populist crusade threatening our democracies under a microscope.

    In recent years, populist movements have been mobilizing public opinion and gaining traction thanks to information technology. Donald Trump in the United States; Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil; Viktor Orban in Hungary; Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, etc... And populists are on the verge of taking power in many other countries.
    Populism is above all a method of conquering and retaining power. It is a set of techniques whose main feature is opportunism: they refuse to take sides, neither left nor right. Populists claim their exclusive capacity to represent the “real people” thanks to a more direct relationship with voters; to the detriment of corrupt and discredited elites.
    For the first time, this investigative documentary is shedding a light on the ones orchestrating this chaos and their methods. For this disorder has its thinkers who, thanks to trial and error, are developing a kind of “populism manual” on the networks. In the shadow of political figures, these hackers of democracy are the real threat. They are computer scientists, opinion pollsters, specialists in Big Data. And they are the new occult advisors to the political world.
    There is an urgent need to understand the phenomenon and examine the tools of resistance that can be mobilized.

    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?

    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.

    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.
