    Painted in 1942 by American artist Edward Hopper, "Nighthawks" has become a symbol of American culture through the many reproductions and representations it has inspired, particularly in film.

    This documentary reveals the keys to understanding the work, by re-establishing it in its social and cultural context, and bears witness to Hopper's fierce independence as a painter well aware of the artistic stakes of his time, split between realism and abstraction.

    This is the first film to relate the history of that unconventional family. It highlights the Steins' contribution to modern art.

    American of German origin, the Steins settled in Paris at the start of the 20th century. Gertrude, an avant-garde writer and her brother Leo lived on rue de Fleurus, and Michael, their elder brother and his wife Sarah lived on rue Madame.

    The Steins were the first to buy works by Matisse and Picasso. They opened up their homes to the entire artistic avant-garde movement and built up one of the most outstanding modern art collections.

    This is the first film to relate the history of that unconventional family. It highlights the Steins' contribution to modern art, covering Leo's perspective on the sources of modernity, Gertrude's friendship with Picasso, Sarah and Michael's links to Matisse, and the projects Gertrude launched in the 1920s and 30s with artists such as Picasso, Gris, Masson and Picabia.

    A multicultural magician, an aesthetic perfectionist, and an engineer of the impossible, sculptor Anish Kapoor thrives on new artistic and technical challenges, such as his enormous inflatable structure with which he took over the Grand Palais in Paris at the Monumenta 2011 exhibition.

    Kapoor, who was born in India but has lived in England since the 1970s, is an enchanting artist - his enormous mirrors capture the clouds, his pigment miniatures are sculptures of monochrome colour, and his wall hangings pull us into a sublime void.

    This documentary recounts the world according to Kapoor, via a journey, from his London studios to the permanent installations of Chicago and Naples, to exhibitions in Bilbao, Mumbai and Dehli.
    The artist is given the opportunity to talk personally about his perpetual quest for new forms, which are always deeply moving.

    This captivating film retraces the intellectual and human process that led Mondrian to geometric abstraction, the highly characteristic style that made him one of the major figures of the international artistic avant-guarde.

    The work of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) marked a turning point in the history of modern painting. Initially influenced by Cubism, Mondrian invented an original universal language of geometric shapes and primary colours in the early 1920s. Along with Kandinsky and Malevitch, he was one of the pioneers of pure abstraction, an innovative trend that strongly influenced 20th century art.

    Filmed in the exact replica of his studio at 26 rue du Départ in Paris, this docu-fiction brings Mondrian back to life. It portrays the man who was passionate about dance and jazz and retraces his artistic path, from his first realist works to his mystical years, from the Stijl movement to his departure for New York, where he died in 1944.

    When came the mid-1970s, the Pop Art movement was giving out its last twitches, its last breath, entrapped by the very soulless, cold and mechanical society it would depict. Calling it "an art makeable by everyone" in the early 1960s, Andy Warhol had indeed given its recipe.

    And there came Jean-Michel Basquiat, telling another story in this period marked by a deep emptiness soaked with images cancelling each other out.
    And Warhol, the master thinker of this hyper Western world, the symbol of a mostly White culture, would become the student and learn about the world, practise his scales all over again with this African-American kid.

    François Morellet is today recognised as one of the great artists of our time, and his works can be seen in the majority of the world's museums.

    Close to the minimalists and the conceptualists, Serge Lemoine, president of the Musée d'Orsay, places François Morellet in the world of contemporary art.
    For 30 years, one of the main aspects of Morellet's work has been the (over 100) pieces he has done in the public domain. We exhibit thirty of his works done in Europe, some of them spectacular, others extremely discreet.
    But beyond his works is the man himself. François Morellet is an atypical character. He pursues his very rigorous and radical work with detachment and distance, is rather exceptionally modest and above all, has a biting sense of humour.

    The documentary is Jacques Monory's vision of the universe. It is a portrait of the artist, his thoughts and works.

    For the past fifty years, Jacques Monory has been an integral part of the French artistic scene. He has been and is still today the great artist of the so-called "Narrative Figuration" movement which coincided with Pop Art in the United States and in Great Britain.
    The works of Jacques Monory have mainly to do with American cinema. He uses the pictures of American cinema to describe the world as he sees it. Although he does have a pessimistic vision of the world, he nevertheless manages to distance himself from his work and from his personal life.

    The general public still associate David Hockney, the legendary artist of the Seventies, with the blue of his Californian swimming pools, with Los Angeles boys, Andy Warhol or with the cult film "A Bigger Splash".

    Filmed in Autumn 1998 in Los Angeles, in his house, this film sheds new light on David Hockney's current work and will be the chance to rediscover an artist who expresses his talents in spheres as diverse as painting, photography, etching and opera design, an artist whose fame has never stopped growing.

    In his studio we are present with him during the production of the works which he considers to be the crowning achievement of his research into the connection between space and landscape : his representations of the Grand Canyon. Two monumental works consisting of 60 juxtaposed canvases.
    By means of successive brush strockes, the film throws light on how an artist proceeds and is able to develop a work which is both intimate and spectacular, taking inspiration from his immediate environment : landscape, but also close friends, family and familiar objects, witnesses of passing time?

    He allows us to share his concerns over the connection between painting and photography, time and memory. He tells us how his work on opera has influenced his comprehension of space, he takes us along with him on his "musical drives", cruising through the Californian landscape, which he enjoys doing whilst listening to Parsifal: in a car one is at the centre of things and when one moves through the landscape, one becomes a centre that moves.

Then, the artist speaks of her silence, abstraction, disappearance, infinity, and the void. On the day of the interview, Aurélie confided in us, revealing some secrets.

    Born in Shanghai in 1960, Yan Pei Ming was a child of the Cultural Revolution. As a young official painter in the Regime, he produced certain grand portraits of General Mao in the streets of the city.

    Rejected from the Art school of Shanghai due to his stutter, he gained admission to Beaux-Arts in Dijon in the beginning of the 1980s and has since been living in France. He soon became famous for his enormous portraits of Mao whose image he continues to represent while distorting, always in black and white or in red. After Mao, Ming went on to attack Buddha, Bruce Lee, his father?
    This film documents many years in the period between 1991-2001 of the artist's life. Shots of Ming at work are mixed with glimpses into his personal life, moments of joy, of parties and of sadness that pull us deeper into the canvas, and allow us to better comprehend his work.

    Christian Boltanski started exhibiting in Germany in the early 1970s and has today gained worldwide recognition for his art.

    He has been awarded the Goslar "Kaiserring" and the Japanese "Praemium Imperiale", often referred to as the Nobel Prize in Art.
    The documentary plunges us into a sombre yet humorous universe, around the world in Paris, Berlin and Japan. It portrays works which are monumental yet little known, as often hidden in locked basements or far-away sites. The film also contains previously unaired archive footage, confronting the artist with his own past and future. Christian Boltanski talks of his true and possible lives, of humanism, religion and utopia, and explains his major project Archives of the Heart that will bring together tens of thousands of heartbeats in a remote place, somewhere between the island of Utopia and the beyond.
