    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.

    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, the animal painter adulated in France in the XIXth century, often forgotten in her country, is nevertheless a major figure of women's emancipation and of the animal cause.

    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.

    Over the years, Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, became both a pop culture icon & a complex dramatic actress. Her career is a unique body of work that mirrors her personal life, which is more political than it might seem.

    At the top and insatiable for 40 years, Nicole Kidman was able to go beyond her plastic beauty in which we could lock her by constantly renewing her range of characters. She soon began taking more significant roles, working with Gus Van Sant, Jane Campion, and Stanley Kubrick.
    Then, she laid down the foundations for an issue she would increasingly explore over more than 30 years and 70 films – the place of women in society.
    To tell this story : Nicole Kidman’s own words from a unpublished long interview.

    The rise, fall and resurrection of Mel Gibson, one of the most successful but also controversial Hollywood stars. From Mad Max to The Passion of the Christ, from Lethal Weapon to Braveheart… 

    Hollywood likes to devour its own children. In ten years, Mel Gibson has gone from hero to zero.
    At the very beginning of the 2000s, he was cashing in on record fees of 25 million dollars per film. With two flagship franchises to his credit as an actor, Mad Max and Lethal Weapon, a budding career as a filmmaker acclaimed by audiences and peers alike (the epic Braveheart, his second film, won five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director), an undiminished popularity with all audiences (women, men, children...) and a long and fruitful marriage with his wife Robyn (twenty years together and seven children), Mel Gibson was for two decades one of the most envied Hollywood superstars of his time.
     
    All that is now in the past: today, Gibson does not even seem to be part of the American film landscape. The industry has made him the man to kill with lightning speed. And, in fact, he was shot.

    It is no small task to cover more than 60 years of cinema history, especially when it is surveyed with such breadth and diversity: TV star, international star, controversial icon, contested director, filmmaker with a capital F, Eastwood has been through it all, experienced it all, and it is first of all this romantic trajectory, this true American pastoral that I want to tell with all the passion I possibly can.

    First woman to have won the Best Director Oscar, 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 remains 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, which populate these imagination machines.

    The reopening of the cold case of Jim Morrison’s death... Was it a heart attack? A CIA plot? An overdose? With exclusive interviews, we discover the truth about the artist’s mysterious death.

    Fifty years ago, in Paris, during the night of July 2 to 3, 1971, the body of rock star Jim Morrison was found lifeless in the bathtub of an apartment by his American girlfriend Pamela Courson. The circumstances of his death were mysterious, but it was not made public until a few days later. Heart attack? CIA plot? Overdose? The police having, strangely, not ordered any autopsy, the questions do not end up feeding the myth. Only one thing is certain, that night, Jim Morrison joined 27 Club , these libertarian idols, such as Janis Joplin, Brian Jones or Jimi Hendrix, destroyed by their excesses at the age of twenty-seven years old.
