    A portrait of Ernest Hemingway in love makes us delve into the intimacy of a man infinitely more complex than the image he liked to give. We will discover the author's relationship with each of his 4 wives, which will enable us to re-read his work with a different perspective.

    Each of them corresponds to a time and a place during the author's life, allowing us to move from the bohemian Paris of the 1920s to the Florida of the 1930s, then back to Europe during World War II before discovering the Cuba of the 1950s; our story ends in Idaho, America, where Ernest Hemingway chose to kill himself at the age of 61.

    Consecrated “king of horror” of modern literature, he distinguished himself in other genres such as fantasy, science fiction or detective stories. Several of his works have been adapted for cinema such as Shining by Stanley Kubrick, Dead Zone by David Cronenberg or Misery by Rob Reiner. 

    What is Stephen King afraid of? "Well of everything !" says the prolix American novelist. Born in 1947 in Maine, where he still lives, he has established himself since the mid-1970s as the king of fantasy and horror, selling more than 350 million copies of his bestsellers around the world in half a century. Revitalizing the genre by playing on child terrors, his stories, rooted in today's rural America, have inspired a host of accomplished filmmakers, from Brian De Palma (Carrie) to Stanley Kubrick ( The Shining) to John Carpenter (Christine), David Cronenberg (The Dead Zone), George A. Romero (The Dark Half), or Rob Reiner (Misery).
     
    Influenced in his youth by the works of Richard Matheson and the classics of fantasy (those of H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker), marked as much by the arrest of a serial killer in the 1950s as by the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, this cantor of popular literature sheds light on the genesis of some of his greatest bookstore bestsellers and their adaptation, for television or cinema, through interviews gathered by Julien Dupuy in an enlightening documentary portrait. Between two film extracts, Stephen King confides in it his childhood memories - the figure of the father, who abandoned him and his mother when he was 2 years old -, his impecunious youth in a small town in Maine, his work methods, but also his struggle against his inner demons (alcohol addiction in especially), his defiance of machines, whose revolt he staged in Maximum Overdrive, his only film as a director, or his philanthropic support for libraries to enable the greatest number of people to have access to books.
     
    Long despised by literary critics, it has since won several prestigious awards such as the National Book Award.

    Sold in more than a million copies in the United States, this morbid book is a plunge into the sick mind of a serial killer yuppie.In the early 1990s, the controversial publication of the novel American Psycho was a bombshell.

    This scandalous novel had been pilloried upon its release, its qualities only appearing later. When cooler heads prevailed, the world finally saw how accurate the author actually was. Politics, money, sexuality, capitalist frenzy, over-consumption: the book was a portrait of contemporary America against the backdrop of the West’s decline.
    The writer portrays Patrick Bateman, a young wolf of Wall Street by day and a serial killer by night. The violence and the crudeness of the description of his murders deeply shocked the readers. Not to mention the racist, homophobic, misogynistic ranting, hatred of the poor and of children that the author forces his audience to hear without restraint through his character's mouth.
    The writer withstood death threats, calls to boycott by feminist organizations, cancellation of promotional tours, lambasting by critics (with very rare exceptions such as Norman Mailer or John Irving)... The release of Bret Easton Ellis' novel in 1991, then its destiny until it became a cult work, adapted twice for the cinema and then in the form of a musical on Broadway, could provide enough material by itself for yet another novel.

    On August 5, 2019, novelist Toni Morrison, first black woman author being awarded the Nobel Prize of Literature, passed away at the age of 88. Her eleven novels were translated in dozens of languages, and she is considered a true figurehead of African-American literature.

    She, who Barack Obama remembered as « a national treasure » the day after she died, has considerably marked the History of the United States through her commitments and the literary and cultural revolution she has initiated. For almost 50 years, being by turns a critic, a book editor, a college professor, a creative author of novels, poems and essays, Morrison claimed the invention of a black writing and brought the light on what was kept quiet, smothered, in the US history. She put words on and pointed out what was silenced and repressed: the Black history.

    A provincial woman who became an icon of the Belle Epoque, she became a celebrated writer, a pioneer of autofiction turning herself into a devilishly romantic character, inseparable from her work. Our film immerses the viewer in the novel of her life.

    By turns novelist, mime, dancer, nude, critic, screenwriter, publicist, and even shopkeeper, Colette lived life to the full, continually reinventing herself through a series of scandals and metamorphoses. Retracing Colette’s career also means sketching a portrait of the early 20th century. With her, in the Paris of the Belle Epoque, we enter the intellectual and high-society worlds, meeting many of the colorful figures of the period as we move through the music-hall scene.

    “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” continues to find new readers and to inspire artists and creators the world over more than a century after its publication because Oscar Wilde gave his novel all the ingredients of a universal masterpiece. 

    Driven by a rock ’n’ roll soundtrack and a directorial approach blending archives, live-action footage and animation, this documentary allows the viewer to experience the dramatic power of this fantasy tale that probes the torments of narcissism, and  explores the book’s premonitory dimension, which prefigures both the author’s tragic fate and contemporary society’s obsession with image.
