THE SUPERPOWERS OF THE BEAR

Directed by Thierry Robert | Rémy Marion
 

The little-known bear

Human civilizations throughout history have always lived in fear and admiration of the wild bear. Now, scientists are on the verge of discovering the biological and physiological secrets of these elusive creatures to help solve human health problems associated with kidneys, neurological disorders, osteoporosis and obesity.

We will meet scientists, visit laboratories and go out into the field to study these animals’ behavior, to discover how one day the bear might revolutionize our lives!

TRACKING ARCTIC GIANTS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT
 

The hope in the Frozen North

All along the Arctic coast of Norway, there’s a bloody battle going on between three different species: orcas, whales…and humans! And it’s all over the vast schools of herring that migrate to the Frozen North to seek shelter there in the fjords.  Follow Didier Noirot, one of the world’s greatest underwater cameramen as he tracks down the giants of the deep – and dives right into the heart of the hunt.

Orcas – or “killer whales” – have developed what is called the “carousel” technique for catching herring: they surround them with bubbles then drive them up to the surface. But now the other whales are no longer scared of joining in to claim their share of the booty. Then there are the humans, with their huge nets: they too are after the same prize.

So who’s going to win the Herring War?

24H WITH SHARKS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT
 

Sharks Day…

They’re everywhere, in every ocean in the world, and they’re always busy, both day and night.

 They’re hunting; they’re mating – brutally; they’re massing together in great hordes; they’re cooperating in astonishing ways with other species, often other predators; and they’re even – on occasion – as docile as lambs, such as when they go to get themselves a good clean-up. All over the world, their fascinating behaviour is there just waiting to be filmed.  Galapagos sharks… white-tip and black-tip sharks… sand tigers sharks… silky sharks… hammerheads… Greenland sharks… whale sharks… and of course the famous great whites: each and every species comes up with its own tactics for hunting, reproducing – in short, for surviving.

 We’d like to propose an undersea journey around the world with these great predators, each of them with its own codes, habits and survival strategies.

So who’s going to win the Herring War?

THE FIREFLIES PROPHECY

DIRECTED BY Sarah Del Ben
 

The reflection of a world

In several parts of the world, fireflies are threatened with extinction.

In China, which are very popular for bringing a little magic to various celebrations, a vast traffic has developed. In Malaysia, their reproduction has become a real tourist event, creating many problems for the survival of the species. On the other hand, in the small village of Piedra Canteada, Mexico, villagers have developed a reasoned eco-tourism to observe this breathtaking spectacle, stopping the logging of their region from 60 to 70%. Finally, in Japan, fireflies have become THE national symbol of environmental conservation and many firefly festivals are organized each year to celebrate this great collective effort.

These four intertwined stories symbolize the questions that arise about the biodiversity of our planet. How can man’s hand lead to the extinction of a species or, on the contrary, preserve it? How can eco-tourism lead to the extinction of its financial resource?
