    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.

    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.

    Despite the weight of the years he works tirelessly to revive the Jewish world lost in the Holocaust. Aharon Appelfeld has become one of the greatest Jewish writers of our time. He is the last Israeli writer who has witnessed the Holocaust.

    His work has more than forty books, translated and published all over the world, having obtained numerous literary awards, including the Prix Médicis Etranger in 2004, and the Israel Prize .

    Every day, through his murmuring voice and handwriting, the survivors, the children of Ukraine, the peasants of Yiddishland come alive in the tiny office of a Jerusalem apartment. Aharon Appelfeld, lonely, wants to fight this battle to the last breath.

    But this solitude is disturbed by the encounter with a young woman. Her name is Valerie Zenatti and she is his translator in French. With her, life breathes into the apartment. For her, he will give shape to a literary and humanist inheritance, and will give it to her.
