    For most of the 20th century, more than any other instrument, the guitar was a symbol of rebellion. Wielded by musicians from all walks of life, it was a weapon used to wage ideological battles, to fight the establishment and light the fires of resistance.

    From blues to punk-rock, from rock 'n roll to Tropicália, from folk and protest song to hard rock and grunge, it has been brandished in anger against racial segregation, social injustice, war, dictatorship or conformism in the adult world...
    Discover the other story of the most popular instrument through the voices of guitarists such as Wayne Kramer, John Kay, Judy Collins or Lee Ranaldo. This is the story of how six simple strings managed to shake the planet as well as consciences.

    Radiohead’s music has been crossing borders and transcending genres for 25 years. This documentary reveals how the band succeeded in reinventing themselves to always be in step with the times, and how they managed to preserve their originality and independence. 

    From their early pop-grunge days with Drill and Pablo Honey to the electro of KID A and orchestral arrangements of A Moon Shaped Pool, the five-piece English group has evolved, constantly shifting their references. Despite being one of the world’s top-selling bands, having sold some 30 million albums, they have pulled off the delicate exercise of being hugely popular while retaining their independence, having deftly navigated the shift to digital and the crisis in the recorded music industry.
     
    Emblematic of the 1990s but still relevant today, Radiohead’s output spans a quarter-century that has seen neoliberalism spread in the west, the Internet become widespread, and digital devices become an extension of the self, through to the promise of impending transhumanism. These existential and political themes have been clear strands throughout the group’s oeuvre, each album providing an echo to a moment in our history.
    Radiohead: Mutant Group will explore how these themes come through in the lyrics, music, videos, graphics, and declarations of the members of Radiohead, and how the band has kept its singularity and commercial and artistic freedom without being swallowed up by the “monster".

    Magical venues in a mythical Paris, during a legendary period – welcome to the era of the cabaret!

    In the euphoria of the after-war era, a whole host of small cabarets sprung up, attracting a delighted crowd of freedom-loving and novelty-seeking youth, who would come to listen to their favourite singers. With its cellars and backrooms transformed into minute stage areas, Saint-Germain-des-Prés became a rallying point.
     
    Artists such as Barbara, Brel, Ferré, Mouloudji, the Frères Jacques, Aznavour, Gainsbourg, Ferrat and Bobby Lapointe made their débuts on these little midnight stages.
    Between 1945 and 1974, over 200 cabarets opened in Paris! Not all of them had the “Rive Gauche” spirit and some enjoyed only a brief existence, but all bore witness to the artistic vitality of the post-war boom.
     
    This documentary brings back to life this effervescent post-war period via a proliferation of archives – among the richest in French audiovisual historical footage in both quality and content.

    An investigation into an old papyrus discovered in a storeroom of the Louvre museum has revealed that it was a very ancient Greek score – more specifically a tragedy, a “Medea”. But how can we know who composed it? How do we interpret this music? And where do we find the ancient instruments to play it?

    The text's grammatical features give us a clue to the composer's identity: Carcinus, an author cited by Aristotle in his Rhetoric. His name is engraved on a wall in the Parthenon. As we learn more and more about Carcinus’ life, a whole world opens up to us: the history of Greek musicians who were revered like gods and traveled the Mediterranean to take part in competitions modeled on the Olympic Games.
    But to hear the Medea as it was heard by the Greeks 2400 years ago, it still has to be played on period instruments. From the Greek cities of Anatolia to the Ptolemies’ Egypt, from the mythical site of Delphi to the discoveries made in Pompeii, relive this voyage along the Mediterranean coast, where archaeological excavations have unearthed a few ancient scores and many instruments’ remains. Unfortunately the passing of time has made them brittle. It is now impossible to make them produce any sound or vibrate.
    But thanks to new technologies developed at IRCAM and the Cité de la Musique, it is now possible to virtually reconstruct and hear sounds that have been lost for two millennia. For the time of a concert in the prestigious ancient theater of Arles, the audience too can delve into a world of sound that was thought to have disappeared forever: the music of ancient Greece.
