TRACKING ARCTIC GIANTS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT

The hope in the Frozen North

Didier Noirot is known as one of the world’s greatest underwater cameramen and has several prestigious awards for his natural history film camerawork.
Over the past 40 years, Didier has been driven by his passion for marine life, but now he’s set himself a new challenge, to film what is perhaps the largest known gathering of marine mammals in the world; hundreds of killer whales in pursuit of shoals of herring. Today, these killer whales are faced with unexpected competition from humpback whales, who began appearing in this Arctic region only a few years ago, driven by a lack of food resources in the Atlantic Ocean, their natural habitat. In the midst of this changing ecosystem, we journey to the heart of the Norwegian fjords, where Didier Noirot’s aim is to take us as close as we can get to these giants of the Arctic so we can witness first-hand their new behaviour and hunting activity, which has never been captured on film before.

THE PRIVATE LIFE OF SHARKS

DIRECTED BY ALEXIS BARBIER-BOUVET | DIDIER NOIROT

Sharks Day…

They hunt, gather in groups, have manic feeding frenzies, and violently attack: sharks are often considered as dangerous killing machines, driven by their primal instinct.
To dispel this image, this film intends to break down these preconceived ideas and reveal the lesser, gentler known aspects of the nature of sharks: delicate, timid, ingenious, harmless…. Sometimes clumsy or unlucky, they too are prey and have to defend themselves against attack. Surviving in the ocean is not as easy as you might think, even for a shark!
Thanks to previously unseen 4K footage, filmed by Didier Noirot, the sharks in this documentary reveal their private side, and certain behaviours for the very first time. This immersion in their private world could well change the way we look at sharks forever.

Ocean’s battle

Since the end of the 19th century, the world’s major naval powers have pioneered increasingly powerful fleets of warships. The oceans have become strategic battlegrounds. These ships have been designed to outperform other warships, resist attack and match the firepower of any formidable enemy. But these Clash of the Titians have rarely been captured on film, and the wrecks of some of these defeated giants can lie hundreds of metres below the surface of the ocean. Yet, luckily, some these steel monsters have been given new life as floating museums or teaching ships and can be found all over the globe. They bear witness to the technological advances of their age, the developments made in naval engineering in the 20th century, and the history of war at sea. These floating superstructures are the forebears of our aircraft carriers, battleships and modern destroyers, which still play an important strategic role in global politics today: the command of the sea.

By retracing the history of these legendary ships, this innovative television series, which features previously unseen archive footage as well as photorealistic 3D models in 4K, will immerse the viewer and take them to the heart of the naval battles that made history.

THE WEB OF LIFE

DIRECTED BY THIERRY ROBERT

The story of the real Spiderman

For over 20 years, one man has been climbing skyscrapers the world over using only his bare hands, and no safety equipment. His unaided climbs often attract huge crowds and are widely reported in the media. But what lies behind this media phenomenon?
Following his ambition to reach the top of the emblematic Burj Al-Arab tower, this film offers the viewer a unique experience of the heights he has to scale, and immerses us in the world of this ‘‘real’’ Spiderman, Alain Robert. From his childhood beginnings to his adult vertiginous ascents, from successes to serious accidents, this is the journey of a resilient man who promised himself that he’d never give up. A rebellious, damaged and yet determined soul.
A child who hoped to make his dreams come true.

NEW GUARDIANS OF NATURE

A film by Sylvain Garassus

Umbrella species

Today, no one can ignore the critical state in which the planet finds itself in: the extinction of species, deforestation, water pollution, and the exhaustion of natural resources. Yet no one has found a miracle solution to halt this impending disaster. The enormity of the subject is probably too vast to tackle. How can we even begin to reconcile human development and nature conservation?

Scientists have devised a new conservation strategy: identifying and preserving a handful of animal species as a priority, which have been chosen for their effect on the environment as a whole.

By concentrating efforts on the protection of these ‘umbrella’ species, a virtuous circle is created, which in turn will restore the balance of the whole ecosystem. Crocodiles, seals, tigers, turtles, pandas and a few others and now ‘umbrella’ species and have inadvertently become the new guardians of nature!

THE EDGE

A FILM BY THIERRY ROBERT

The final frontier

Our planet is rich in mysterious and remote places that contribute to the natural balance of the whole ecosystem. One example is the Arctic.
By analyzing the evolution of the Arctic region, we gain a better understanding of the Earth’s climate. To do this, scientists are focusing their attention on the natural boundary demarcating the edge of this region. This very real boundary, over 13,000 kilometers long, circles the globe. Beyond this, are endless fields of ice and tundra, inhabited by arctic foxes, musk oxen and polar bear. Alongside which the rare, indigenous populations such as the Inuit and the Sami, live.
Like a delicately balanced tightrope walker, this film will take you from Alaska to the Chukochya river in Yakutia, from Scandinavia to Greenland, via the Torngat Mountains of Labrador, and it will introduce you to the scientists and their work. In the Arctic they are intent on studying the impact of this unprecedented climatic upheaval, the fastest that planet Earth has ever known.

THE FIREFLIES PROPHECY

DIRECTED BY Sarah Del Ben

The reflection of a world

Fireflies have always fascinated man. They are known for their incredible ability to produce light, but it would be misleading to reduce this complex species to just this one simple activity.
It now seems that this tiny and insignificant insect is able to act as an early warning signal as to the state of our planet.
Through an enlightening narrative, which takes us to all four corners of the globe, this film explores the relationship to fireflies that different cultures have, and thus in a broader context, the ambiguous relationship to nature that man has created.

WILD REVOLUTION

A FILM BY JEREMY FREY

February 4th 2018.

Esmond Bradley Martin was found dead on his property in Nairobi. The police came to the hurried conclusion that his death was the result of an aggravated burglary that went badly wrong. But close relatives of this American geographer and conservationist believe that the reasons for his death are linked to the explosive report that Esmond Martin was about to publish on the international illegal trafficking of ivory.
What controversial revelations did this unpublished report contain? Which key political figures did it implicate in the illegal trade? What are the financial inducements offered to poachers? What is the criminal connection between poaching and trafficking arms, drugs, and even humans? To answer these difficult questions, Remi Dupouy conducts his own investigation.
Full of unexpected revelations and shock imagery, this film takes a powerful and pioneering look at nature conservation, taking us behind the scenes of both international ivory trafficking and wildlife conservation.

Wild in the farm

A film by Thierry Robert

A revolution is brewing in the countryside.

Farmers are talking to birds, fraternizing with foxes and badgers, playing host to migrating birds, cohabiting with turtles and bats, welcoming weeds as well as all the unwelcome, unnecessary and supposedly harmful ‘nature’. Across France, hybrid communities are slowly taking shape where farmers, domestic life and wildlife interact and negotiate about each other’s daily needs for the greater benefit of all.

By following the daily routines of four farming families for a whole year, this documentary invites us to discover a little-known aspect of biodiversity, via original and sometimes surprising interactions between wild and domestic animals.

So, what is the message behind these contemporary, funny, moving and optimistic animal fables? The premise for a new society based on a new alliance between man and nature!
