    Perhaps because the actor's life seems straight out of a movie where death, love, drugs, motels, palaces, Marlon Brando and Iggy Pop are all part of the ensemble. These multiple layers, sometimes contradictory, are found in his most iconic interpretations: often poetic and always offbeat anti-heroes: genuine American anomalies.

    Rosa Bonheur was a major figure of female emancipation: she was the first woman artist to receive the Legion of Honour, from the hands of another woman, the Empress Eugenie, who said on this occasion: “Genius has no sex”. She was also the first woman officially authorized to wear pants; the first to buy property with the fruit of her labor, thanks to the sale of a single painting; she settled in this property with several friends: living between women, sharing their fortunes between them, becoming heirs of each other, they founded a sisterhood that would leave a lasting impression on the French society of the time.

    At the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, Céline Dion surprisingly represented Switzerland, but this has nothing to do with chance. From Quebec to international star, this portrait traces the singer's career to rediscover a character and an image that is all too familiar, yet more complex than it may seem.

    How did Céline Dion, a worldwide star who went on to become the world's most famous Quebecker, find herself representing Switzerland at the most memorable edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in the late 80s?
     
    Yet this has nothing to do with chance. In fact, in more ways than one, it reveals the singer's career, and the couple she formed for over 40 years with René Angélil, both her manager and her one true love. It's both romantic and carefully thought through, over-the- top and yet confoundingly sincere.
     
    This adventure, which was an opportunity to conquer new markets as it was a gamble on the part of the producer. It was to reveal to 500 million viewers the transformation of an artist, illustrating how she went from a little girl with a cheesy look and crooked teeth to a young woman ready to seize the moment. Less than 10 years after this victory, Céline Dion was chosen to sing "My Heart Will Go On", the song from Titanic which, like the film, became a worldwide hit. A stunning career!
     
    Through this contest and its breathtaking Grand Final, the portrait of a female competitor emerged. And so it was Switzerland that first gave Céline Dion her champion title and attributes.

    A unique film on Isaac Asimov, the godfather of science fiction, featuring his deepfake giving its vision of our future: robots, overpopulation, technology invading our houses...

    The film presents the theories of a man who, back then, saw what science is bringing to us today.
    With over 500 publications to his name, from the 50’s to the 80’s, he had anticipated computers and electronic gadgets invading the household, autonomous vehicles and humans' withdrawal from nature. Science fiction and anticipation stories have never been as popular as they are today. It inspires literature, drama series, films, even politics and the military. As the world we live in faces an unprecedented technological acceleration, we are more concerned than ever about our future.

    From her precocious status as a sex symbol to her consecration as a filmmaker, Jodie Foster’s story is about a feminist struggle, fought on and off-screen.

    A cerebral, French-speaking woman among Hollywood bimbos: the Jodie Foster enigma is a tough one to solve. Her early years tell a story that is diametrically opposed to her current image – she used to be a girl over influenced by images and the film industry.
    In her most beloved movies, whether Silence of the Lambs or Panic Room, she is the embodiment of uniqueness: a cold beauty, an icon defying all the codes of Hollywood glamor. Beautiful but never passive, heroic but not masculine, sexual but not eroticized: she cultivates her subtle, paradoxical androgyny from film to film.

  • KATHRYN BIGELOW, HOLLYWOOD’S WARRIOR

    As the first woman to have won the Academy Award for Best Director, obsessed with the violence that underlies all of her cinematographic work, Kathryn Bigelow’s portrait also tells a story of violence in the United States.
     

    "I've always seen violence as political. I see it as a power strategy" Kathryn Bigelow is right. That' s the way it is, death is cinematic.
    The atmosphere is getting tense in the United States. Violence is on the rise. Up until now, it was present on screen. Now it seems to be overflowing, invading reality. One filmmaker has seen this phenomenon before others. Whether we like it or not, Hollywood is still our dream machine. And when we take a closer look, the vast majority of the stories that these blockbusters tell us are made of violence: crime, torture, war, rape and murder, that populate these imagination machines.

    The first movie on Kim Novak, her career, and her emancipation from the Hollywood system, with the exclusive participation of the actress herself. An echo with the #MeToo movement. Discover the unforgettable heroine of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo.  

    Kim Novak will forever be remembered for her dual role in Hitchcock’s Vertigo, in which she plays a woman forced to transform into someone else to fulfill a man’s obsession. The actress deeply identified with the role: “It’s exactly what Hollywood wanted to do to me: turn me into someone I was not.” Novak was a rebel inside a star system that broke women’s spirits in order to manufacture screen goddesses, a toxic system she never ceased to speak out against.
     
    At the tender age of 20, Novak, groomed to rival Marilyn Monroe by the head of Columbia Pictures, Harry Cohn, finds herself thrown into the limelight. With no acting experience, the young Marilyn Novak who dreamed of becoming a painter undergoes a disconcerting makeover which will transform her into the glamorous bombshell Kim Novak, otherwise known as the Lavender Blonde. Her anxiety on set is compounded by an intimidating studio head, demanding directors, and a misogynist press. 
     
    This documentary tells the story of how this box office sensation who worked with some of the greatest directors of the era - Otto Preminger, Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock - takes on the Hollywood studio system and reclaims her life.
