A Wolf's Journey

Directed par Vincent Steiger

Narration by Kad Merad

Cast out by his pack, a young wolf has to face his destiny alone and try to survive in a world reigned over by Man. From the forests of Romania to the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean, he heads off in search of a new territory, a new pack and a new family.

This is the incredible story of Slava, the wolf.

This film tells also the story of a wolf in the Anthropocene. That of a 21st century wolf, who adapts to the world’s new rules. A wolf who constantly comes up against Man. Faced sometimes with his brutality, his constructions, his roads, his factories.

This documentary, based on real facts, directed by Vincent Steiger, will bring us to think about the future of the wolf, but moreover, about the relationship our society has with “the wild”.

Antarctica
in the Footsteps of the Emperor

Directed by Jérôme Bouvier

With Laurent Ballesta et Vincent Munier

A frozen continent of 19 000 000 km2, the Antarctic seemed so far to have been protected from the vicissitudes of climate change.

But worrying signs are now appearing that show that biodiversity and the glacial cycle are impacted. The rate of mortality of emperor penguin chicks is becoming more and more worrying. The emperor, veritable custodian of the ice, is at the core of the arctic ecosystem and plays a role as bioindicator for this extraordinary territory.

To document and explain the phenomena that are taking place in the Antarctic, photographers, Laurent Ballesta and Vincent Munier, make their way to the Dumont d’Urville base.

With a team of scientists, they are going to try on and under the ice, to decipher the role held by the Antarctic in our global ecosystem and the issues that darken its future.

Antarctica, Living on the Edge

Directed by Marianne Cramer & Jérôme Bouvier

A surprisingly plentiful variety of plant and animal life is hidden away in the heart of the Antarctic’s ice.

On the pack ice, on the continent and in the surrounding ocean, like so many superheroes, the Antarctic’s inhabitants are guardians of the frontiers of the living.

All life seems impossible in climatic conditions such as those that they deal with.

In this regard, they constitute a wonderful laboratory of knowledge and understanding of life that we wish to give you the opportunity to discover.

How can these species survive in this hostile desert? What adaptation mechanisms have they put in place to stay alive at the southerly tip of our planet? What can they teach us about our world and its evolution?

The Age of Man

Directed by Dimitri Grimblat

The world has entered a new era. It’s called the Anthropocene or the Age of Man.

After an age-old struggle to preserve himself from the whims of nature and tame its forces, modern man has become the primary geological force on Earth to an extent where he has even caused the climate disruption that threatens his survival today.
Easter Islanders, Mayas, Vikings and even the 17th century Japanese throw light on man’s unrelenting struggle against nature. Their stories tell us about the power relationship between human activities and man’s natural environment. They remind us that, notwithstanding our evolution, man’s connection to nature is inalienable.
Between those who predict the total collapse of our world and those who believe they know how to save it, mankind is going to have to adapt to this new era. Because man has never before been so powerful, and because he is global and international, the challenge he is facing is colossal and unparalleled.

THE AGE OF MAN draws a human, historical and political portrait that creates an exchange between the past and present in an attempt to help us better understand our future.

Detroit Wild City

Directed by Florent Tillon

The automotive industry created Detroit, which used to be the most industrialised city in the United States. The ensuing the desertion by this very same industry returned the city to its primary state of nature: vast prairies frequented by falcons, coyotes and forest animals, thus transforming the urban landscape into a B movie setting.

But the most astonishing thing is not just that people still live in these rundown places, but that young Americans travel from afar to settle down in Detroit, in the midst of these ruins and wasteland… What are their plans? What are their dreams? Are they the new pioneers of a devastated America? Could America be “rediscovered”?
