BROTHER WOLF

Written and directed by Laurent Joffrion

Brother Wolf is the title of a photograph by the American photographer and filmmaker Jim Brandenburg, in which the intrigued gaze of a wolf confronts that of the viewer and interrogates him.
By recounting the genesis of this image, this film immerses us in the life of its author with wolves and exposes a vision of our common history with Canis lupus.

Magnetic Continent

written and directed by Luc Jacquet

To the day, 30 years ago, I left for my first mission in Terre Adélie, it was in 1991. Since then, I have spent almost 4 years in this part of the world. Why such an attraction ? The Earth is so vast… This addiction is the “Antarctic cock”. Like all my companions of polar epic of today and yesterday, I am unable to explain in words what attracts us to these regions, which are so distant and hostile. I wanted to share my thoughts on this strange charm through a personal filmic form, mixing poetry and interior narrative in an attempt to share, as accurately and and as close as possible to the emotions, this curious magnetism.

Luc Jacquet.

WHY GANNETS HAVE BLUE FEET

written and directed by Luc Jacquet

But why on earth, on a lost island in the Pacific, strange birds show blue feet that are found nowhere else? By what whimsical, capricious and mischievous path, the strangest forms of life have found their way to the Galapagos archipelago? On land and under the surface of the ocean, in the course of a playful and learned investigation, L’Ile aux Fous tells the great story of life, that of an extraordinary machinery made of perseverance, resilience but also of sympathetic errors which are the true engine of evolution.
