    These nine modules will immerse us in the very heart of Japanese society, in the very heart of Tokyo, its energy, its fantasy, its contradictions. The documentary series will decipher "Japan from inside out", in a fun, odd and offbeat way.

    The gachappon is the equivalent of jukebox: a vending-machine for junk surprises, a spectacular mechanics like a pinball machine and addictive like a slot machine. But instead of delivering a plastic gift, a video capsule will emerge to help us discover this distant and fascinating country by its less known side: small daily realities!
    Each of the nine episodes of the documentary web series Gacha Gacha is designed in a fun discovery mode, to dissect nine typically Japanese rites. Ways of doing things that are both millennial and hypermodern, disciplined bodies and lively minds, a very modest and suddenly exhibitionist daily life. Technological and spooky materials, sounds and colors.

    Since 2013, Olivier Père, Executive Director of ARTE France Cinéma, has been conducting interviews with personalities from the world of film. Olivier Père explains: “Our guests are interviewed in an intimate atmosphere - unlike for promotional interviews".

    The interviews with directors (and sometimes actors or producers) are carried out in a simple manner, facing the camera. They mostly take place during the Cannes Film Festival, when films are presented in the various categories, but also sometimes in Paris.
     
    Olivier Père explains: “Our guests are interviewed in an intimate atmosphere - unlike for promotional interviews - in which we show our interest or admiration (and often both, simultaneously) regarding specific aspects of the writing, directing or producing of the film, and naturally, regarding the author’s intentions and motivations. Interviewees include budding filmmakers, who have risen to prominence following an outstanding first film, as well as experienced filmmakers and leading names in French, European and international cinema”.

    Whether you like him or not, whether he arouses admiration, perplexity or laughter, Jean-Claude Van Damme’s life is an incredible and unconventional adventure from Belgium to Hollywood hills.

    In 1988, an unknown man named Jean-Claude Van Damme became a worldwide celebrity by getting the lead role in a low-budget martial arts film that should have been released only on DVD, but would make millions of dollars.

    This was the beginning of a meteoric rise for the young Belgian who had arrived in Los Angeles six years earlier, without money or contacts but with a stainless determination, which, after many setbacks, would make him one of the best rated action film actors in Hollywood for more than a decade.

    Harder would be the fall at the end of the 90s, which drug abuse would accelerate. Mocked for the lunar and surrealistic reflections with which he now spices up his interviews, Jean-Claude would however know salvation in 2008 thanks to his humble and lucid performance in JCVD, a French film telling the story of a former kick-boxing star who has lost everything and finds his roots in Brussels. After which, little by little, Van Damme would climb back up the steps of respect.

    Since then, between the United States, Asia and Europe, Jean-Claude Van Damme, unable to stop, has switched between action films, dramas and self-deprecating parodies, making him one of the most lovable figures in cinema.

    A real-life or fictitious hero, Robin Hood is first and foremost a cultural reference. Everyone can identify with this character’s values and commitment, and it has been so for some 800 years.
    A review of this legendary figure’s impact.

    He is a hero celebrated on all continents across all media; an icon of popular culture, a model of virtue and commitment for all generations. But the documentaries about him are scarce. In these uncertain times, it is high time to revisit this star of social justice.
    Robin never out of fashion: oppressors and oppressed are always in the news. This film tells the fascinating saga of a popular and revolutionary icon present throughout all media; from children’s songs to literature, movies, TV, comics and, more recently, video games. The champion of the poor appeals to all generations, cultures and regions of the world.

    He is a super hero who never goes out of fashion. He is exotic, entertaining and highly accessible. The film recounts the circumstances surrounding the birth of the character, the reasons for his success, and how did each generation re-invent and re-interpret him.

    Tarzan was born in 1912 in an American newspaper, penned by Edgar Rice Burrough. The young writer was far from imagining that he had just created one of the major characters of the 20th century.
    This key character of popular culture, known all over the world, has become a myth: 28 novels translated into 56 languages and sold 50 million copies, 15 000 comic strips, 200 films or episodes of television series…

    A documentary that zooms in on the most beautiful buttocks in the history of art : buttocks. What exactly are they for? What looks and what desires do they arouse? How do they cross eras and cultures?

    This entertaining and accomplished analysis, which is the fruit of a meeting between two art lovers, Caroline Pochon and Allan Rothschild, takes on the subject of that fleshy part of our anatomy, without becoming lurid. From the Louvre Museum to the street, from cinema to designers' workshops, via advertising clichés, the portrayal of buttocks brings out collective fantasies, and reveals a great deal about the foundations (in both a literal and figurative sense) of our society, its taboos, and its desires.

    The word "Borsalino" today designates a felt hat. The Borsalino family brand has become a household name, like that of Tupperware, Kleenex or Walkman.

    The quality felt hat, born in a small family factory in Alessandria in the 1850s, rose in status from manufactured object to veritable international myth when the craftsmanship of a small provincial town met the Hollywood dream. This film recounts the history of the manufacture of this myth, which has close ties to the history of cinema in the early 20th century.

    Techno has become a culture in its own right, ranking among trendy music, and bringing together millions of people worldwide.

    Its DJs have become veritable stars. It is a global, worldwide culture, and its creators and fans alike share its common denominators of hedonism, a thirst for freedom, and a sense of suspended time via its musical trances.
     
    Thanks to Internet, but also thanks to emblematic festivals, the Techno movement is today undergoing exponential growth. What are the codes and the creative processes of this worldwide culture? Who are the leading players of this global movement? How does this music influence contemporary creation, and increasingly, the economy?

    Rocky IV is an emblematic movie, and constitutes a chapter in popular culture. When it was released in 1985, audiences from all over the world flocked to movie theatres. Rocky IV hits the spot, hard.

    Rocky IV is dually symbolic - it embodies both the victory of the American boxer over the Soviet one and the victory of neo-liberalism over a dwindling socialism. The film fed a global popular culture that steamrolled everything in the US, in Europe and in the Eastern bloc countries.
     
    Still today, Rocky is held up as a model by some and is a subject of derision for others. An emblem of the 1980s, its culture and its heroes, the film will be the subject of an entertaining analysis of popular culture - which in itself is highly political.
