    The Pyrenees are one of Europe’s oldest mountain range and shelters a wildlife that is almost impossible to observe, as the area is inaccessible. Our team lives on site and will film its wildlife for two years. 

    Discover wildlife filming behind the scenes and find out that more often than not, animals are much more cunning than men. Unfortunately, this lush world is still not very accessible – the animals fear the presence of man in this emblematic massif. To discover them, you have to investigate, find clues, follow tracks and be very patient before you finally get the chance to see them.
    Luckily, the journey proves to be just as exciting as the objective: chance upon a mountain-size game of hide-and-seek where man must understand nature and tame it in order to discover its secrets.

    Targeted assassinations, bombings, unidentified military attacks are piling up all over the Middle East. Can the "secret war" between Iran and Israel turn into a major regional if not global confrontation?

    The two countries are nowadays the two dominant powers in the Middle East. Their conflict is reinforced by the renewed tension between the United States and Iran since President Trump decided to leave the nuclear agreement. Based on unprecedented archival research, access to high profile players in Israel, Iran, Lebanon and the US, the film looks back over the forty years that followed the Islamic revolution in Iran, the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, the Civil war in Syria, to offer relevant keys to understanding the new Middle East.

    When one thinks of kangaroos, one thinks of Australia. And yet, they completed a fantastical voyage around the world, from North and South America, to Europe and Antarctica, before landing in Oceania. Where do the animals symbolic of each five continents really come from? 

    65 million years ago, dinosaurs perished, allowing the advent of mammals on every conti­nent. Over that time, climates have changed, continents have shifted, oceans and seas have risen and died out, new predators have appeared provoking the evolution of these animals and great migrations for survival often far from where they were first seen, from one continent to another.
    Scientists use the latest research of evolutionary paleontology to tell the 65 million year odyssey of animals we think we know so well: the monkey, the elephant, the horse, the bear and the kangaroo.

    Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a Buddhist city of incredible wealth, from which they are unearthing thousands of treasures. However, their time is running out, the government having ceded the rights to the copper mine to a Chinese company, threatening to destroy everything...

    The ancient city of Mes Aynak, literally "the source of copper", built its power on the precious metal present in its subsoil. On this site, active for more than a thousand years, the monks did not just carry out religious activities. They abandoned their currency and created a banking network throughout the region. It is this wealth which gave them the means of an intense cultural production, as evidenced by the many treasures found by archaeologists: more than three thousand statues, but also parchments, pieces of goldsmith's work, jewels, pottery ...
    The Mes Aynak site offers a unique opportunity to explore Afghan Buddhism, a period of history that still has many secrets to reveal. The remains could allow archaeologists to understand in what ways the religion of Buddha, born in the plain of the Ganges, was shaped here, in the heart of Central Asia, before spreading to the rest of Asia.

    They are the engineers, the computer scientists, the experts who have decided to put their tech skills to work for the populists who are taking over the world. “Hacking Democracy” puts the new populist crusade threatening our democracies under a microscope.

    In recent years, populist movements have been mobilizing public opinion and gaining traction thanks to information technology. Donald Trump in the United States; Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil; Viktor Orban in Hungary; Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, etc... And populists are on the verge of taking power in many other countries.
    Populism is above all a method of conquering and retaining power. It is a set of techniques whose main feature is opportunism: they refuse to take sides, neither left nor right. Populists claim their exclusive capacity to represent the “real people” thanks to a more direct relationship with voters; to the detriment of corrupt and discredited elites.
    For the first time, this investigative documentary is shedding a light on the ones orchestrating this chaos and their methods. For this disorder has its thinkers who, thanks to trial and error, are developing a kind of “populism manual” on the networks. In the shadow of political figures, these hackers of democracy are the real threat. They are computer scientists, opinion pollsters, specialists in Big Data. And they are the new occult advisors to the political world.
    There is an urgent need to understand the phenomenon and examine the tools of resistance that can be mobilized.

    This film draws the psychological portrait of a man who constantly defies death. On at least six occasions, Napoleon and the reaper confront each other. On six occasions, this confrontation will change the course of his life and strengthen him in the idea that he is the chosen one of destiny.

    From the enemy bullets from the Pont d'Arcole to the poison of a suicide attempt, from a car bomb to assassination plans, Napoleon forged the image of an invincible being. The final battle against death, on St. Helena, will be the pinnacle of his glory. 2021 will mark the bicentenary of the death of Napoleon.

    To improve its own health, Big Tech has decided to take over ours. Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and many other digital corporations have already started defrauding our medical data and replacing national health structures by mining their users’ personal data.

    Through artificial intelligence and their boundless  capacity for innovation, they have inserted themselves into a failing health care sector, which they see as just the ultimate market to conquer.
    Google sorts patients in British emergency rooms. Apple takes the world's pulse, and has promised to make improving public health "its greatest contribution to mankind." Facebook has its own Zuckerberg Hospital and shares its users' "secret medical information" with the pharmaceutical industry. As for Amazon, Jeff Bezos's company has started delivering medicine, and is entering the medical-insurance market.
    Is our health the next sector facing Uberization? Will nations be able to protect their citizens from the maneuvers of the Big Four?

    Saqqara, Egypt, 1850. Auguste Mariette discovered the Serapeum, the burial place of the Apis bull, one of the most sacred sites in ancient Egypt. Before the site crumbled, he managed to extract treasures that represent 10% of the Louvre’s Egyptian collection today. 

    He also managed to map out a network of underground tunnels leading to other burial sites he did not have time to uncover. We have the exclusive access to follow a team of archeologists, mandated by the Louvre Museum, to pick up where Mariette had left off.

    Last August, on the 5th, 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.

    No one took him seriously; he was seen as a buffoon. Yet he was on the winning side with Brexit in 2016 and then triumphed in the December 2019 legislative elections.

    Boris Johnson is the UK's new strongman. And he is radically altering his country, leaving an indelible mark on it – for better or for worse. The British people and Europe's future for the next ten years hang on to this eccentric sad clown's decisions.
    With the COVID-19 pandemic, the United Kingdom is facing a major crisis on its own, without the European Union’s help, for the first time. Boris Johnson was hit directly by this crisis, spending a week in hospital in a critical condition. The other twenty-seven watch on as the first country to get out of the union is carving its own path – all while the terms of the divorce with the EU are not even negotiated yet.
    In 2020, in addition to the coronavirus crisis, the Prime Minister will have to square up against Brussels, pour oil on troubled waters regarding the Scottish and Irish desires for independence and obtain a free trade agreement with Donald Trump. He will have to pick his poison: alienating the EU by toddling into America's lap or, on the contrary, tread carefully around his European allies. These decisions will bind the UK and Europe for decades to come.
    Behind his veil of buffoonery, will Boris Johnson embrace the stature that befits a statesman or lead his country to disaster? At heart, is he the United Kingdom's gravedigger? Or is he a restorer of British greatness?

    Moss is at the origin of life on Earth and it has helped develop multiple different ecosystems since its appearance 450 million years ago. It fascinates scientists: it has no roots, no seeds, no flowers, no vascular system and a very primitive reproductive system.

    We travel to Japan, Iceland, France, Ireland and Spain to meet experts who study moss for various disciplines: biotechnology, climatology, nuclear contamination, and evolutionary biology. Visually moss covered landscapes are absolutely stunning and mysterious, and offer a great background to tell our story.

     Traveling through the region we now call the American West - the previously Mexican-ruled territories of California, New Mexico and Texas – a photographer traces the pre-1848 border and encounters families that have lived in the region since long before the US takeover.

    His quest reveals suppressed memories and fascinating personal histories, shining new light on identities - indigenous, mestizo, Crypto-Jewish, Afro-Latin - that remain ignored and distorted in the official versions of history still taught today.
