This excellent and breath taking documentary is the result of a long study on the Goulag to try to
understand why more than 60 million Soviet citizens were sent to the camps from 1918 to 1956, how such
a massive confinement could take place during two generations.
From the Solovki in the north-west to the Kolima in Siberia, from Lenine to Kroutchev, a polar geography is
erected into the Goulag system.
One does not escape from camps. After ten years of imprisonment, one dies. Some survived, some left
traces; they witness : organisation, work and discipline, but also resistance, repression and revolt.

A documentary about May 1968. At the request of students studying at the Sorbonne, William Klein filmed
events in the Latin Quarter of Paris. This footage was intended to be used as part of an umbrella film about
May 1968 which, due to multiple dissensions, could never be completed at the time. The film is given over
to the people, students, militants, union activists,those who in daily life barely have any contact with each
other who can suddenly express themselves . We listen to workers, housewives, waiters, store owners,
immigrants, school-children, pensioners, dissatisfied yuppies, repentent bosses, angry young men and
women of every type and political tendency, whose passionate discussions ebb and flow across the city...
Good intentions, rumors, revelations, wild dreams and speeches, incisive and far-fetched analyses,
dramatic turns of events, plots, confessions, crises of conscience, good and bad trips and psychodramas...
Talking and talking into delirium.

The Birth of Christianity recounts the invention of Christianity within Judaism by piecing together, in a
timescale from AD 30-150, the disputes and debates that arose among its early protagonists and the first
generations in Jerusalem, Antioch, Corinth, Alexandria and Rome, always with the aim of ensuring the
salvation of the nation of Israel.
An essential period in western history.
When Jesus died around AD 30, crucified as "King of the Jews" by the Romans in Jerusalem, who could
have predicted that a new religion would take root within the next century?

It is two thousand five hundred and forty-four years since the Buddha Sakhyamuni departed this world,
having attained Nirvana, the highest level of enlightenment.
Although over half of humanity has been influenced by Buddha's ideas, his life-story has been interpreted
in various ways.
Our knowledge of Buddha stems mainly from the Tibetan exegetical tradition. But the facts of his life are
less well-known and their significance has often been distorted by the religious establishment.
Rather than taking a hagiographical approach, this documentary attempts to find out who Buddha really
was. He emerges as an anarchist visionary who attempted to shatter the caste system in which India is still
imprisoned, forbade his followers to make representations of him (the earliest image of Buddha dates from
seven centuries after his death), and invented the law of cause and effect, whose relevance scientists
have recently rediscovered.
The Life of Buddha sets out to re-examine the life and doctrines of Buddha in the places where he himself
lived. His founding texts are explained by lay Buddhists - peasants, children and wise men - and by monks,
in the very places where Buddha lived and taught 2,500 years ago.

Mohammed, son of Abdullah, was born in Mecca in about 571 A.D. He was orphaned at the age of six and
was brought up to be a merchant, the traditional occupation of the prestigious Hashemite clan to which he
belonged.
In 610, when he was 40, Mohammed had a vision of an angel and received his first divine revelation. From
then on, he spent all his time preaching, proclaiming his faith to ever-larger audiences from Mecca to
Medina until his death in 632.
The Prophet's biography is told via rare interviews with a number of Muslims, including imams, whilst
academics from the Arab world and beyond shed further light on various sections of the narrative.
With the aid of calligraphic manuscripts, Ottoman illuminations and sequences filmed in the mosques and
Koran schools, the documentary series MOHAMMED demonstrates the vast importance of the prophet
whose life-story is inextricably woven into the Koran, the sacred text on which Islam is founded.

In 1964, Cassius Clay becomes heavy-weight champion of the world and declares his name is Muhammad
Ali. A date in sports history and a turning point in black awareness. This was the subject of William Klein's
feature documentary : Cassius The Great, winner of first prizes in four international festivals.
It was a searing look into boxing, into the Southern power structure, inside the Black Muslims. Muhammad
Ali explodes on the scene constantly catching America off guard, the first black champion to declare
himself free. Eventually, it cost him his title, 3 years enforced retirement, and many millions of dollars. But
unkindest cut, as ex-champion he became a symbol in reverse. In America, a martyr is rather a loser than
a hero.
Muhammad Ali, an aging 32 year-old, who no longer Floats-like-a-Butterfly-and-Stings-like-a-Bee, no
longer a revolutionary figure but nostalgia, wants his title back, or, at least, one last big pay check and he
shall fight the terrifying Foreman.
And at all odds, this is the end of the most extraordinary sports career of all time.
October 31, 5:30am, Kinshasa, Zaïre. Ali stands triumphant over Foreman, bewildered and K.O How did
Ali, underdog, ex-martyr, become once again an all-time hero, champion and legend ?
What has he become, the man that Malcolm X called the most important black personality of our time ?
The phenomenon that Norman Mailer calls "The Spirit of the 20th Century, the Prince of Mass Man and of
Media"? Who is Ali ?
This first and only real portrait, Muhammad Ali the Greatest brings a powerful, often hilarious, and always
entertaining answer.

On the circuit of grand slam events, the Roland Garros tournament is better known as The French Open,
or simply The French. For two weeks, life in Paris and the whole of France is dominated by this amazing
sports event where great champions are on court wherever you look and as many as 50 matches are
fought out each day. William Klein and three camera crews were given total access to The French. From
men and women's locker-rooms to massage tables, reception rooms to television studios, players'
signing-in desk to turnstiles, stands, umpire's chairs, entrance gates and the VIP village, the cameras were
given, for the first and last time, absolutely free rein. Miles of filmstock, unique footage, a thousand and
one details, a many quirky anecdotes. For over two hours, the film shows the tennis carnaval as you have
never seen it before. A circus with its cast of crazies, cranks, snobs, groupies, gurus, magicians, hustlers,
heroes, clowns, sponsors, supermen and superwomen. And dollars, fistfuls of dollars, glory, fear and
passion.

In this film, we relive one of the greatest geographical and human adventures of the nineteenth century:
the quest for the sources of the Nile.
After four expeditions and thirty years of laboured progress through unforgiving African terrain, the
centuries-old mystery of the river which sprang from beyond the desert was finally solved.
The quest rapidly acquired legendary status. Geographical curiosity soon gave way to expansionist urges
and endless wrangling and controversies.
Via the narratives of Speke, Burton, Baker, Stanley and Livingstone, we relive their journeys - the
hardships, the illnesses and the disasters - and share in the fanatical determination of these men, the
grandeur of whose aims was equalled only by the size of their egos.

The eventful history of the relationship between Man and animals in the heart of Africa, from Roosevelt's
famous safari in 1909 to the heated contemporary debate on wild species conservation.
The early 20th century was the golden age of the safari: for a period of about thirty years, all over the
world, the word "safari" conjured up an image of long lines of bearers led by a seasoned white hunter paid
to guide wealthy tourists through the bush in search of thrills and exoticism.
The adventure-symbol of the safari is inseparably linked with the colonial era, but it has survived the end of
that era and reinvented itself to fit in with changes in African circumstances and Western attitudes and a
growing public awareness of ecological issues.
This exploration of the topic of safaris reveals how our perceptions of Africa and its wildlife have changed,
and highlights the real issues: there is a consensus that the ecosystem is in danger of collapsing, but the
benefits and drawbacks of the various solutions put forward have to be carefully weighed up.
The film also attempts to define what it is about safaris that continues to attract people to East and South
Africa, and why they yearn to see wild animals from close to, be it through the sights of a gun or the lens of
a camera.

Sophie Bruneau and Marc-Antoine Roudil set off in search of the trees of the world and return with a rich
haul of traveller's tree-tales - long or short, true or fantastical - in a documentary which is at once poetic,
educational and contemplative - a superb moment in plant cinema.
Trees tells the story of a society which is hundreds of millions of years old, which is made up of with
individuals with widely differing personalities, taking us on a journey through space and time to rediscover
the riches of a world we no longer take the time to look at. Madagascan baobabs, Californian sequoias,
date-palms, bristlecone pines and other specimens are minutely scrutinised down to the finest scale of
bark. Sophie Bruneau and Marc-Antoine Roudil relate their histories (be they truth or fable) from their
origins to their premature deaths, their scientific characteristics and their special magic, and explore the
ways in which they are different from and similar to human beings. In the course of this voyage of
discovery, we encounter some extraordinary characters, including a tree which preserves the imprint of its
strangled victim, an acacia which communicates, a tree that walks towards the sea, a shy tree which
avoids all contact with others of the same species, a town-dwelling tree and a mad tree. The magic of film
brings alive the fantastical elements in our scientific knowledge of trees, and fact metamorphoses into
fairy-tale before our very eyes.

In 1999, the laying of the first fibre-otpic cable in South-East Asia crossed through Cambodia. The works
involve digging a in-deep trench from the Thai border over to the Vietnamese frontier and then laying the
cable, which is no wider than a thumb. It is an opportunity for many Cambodians to find a job, whether they
be poverty-stricken farmers, demobilised soldiers or families without resources..
The trench digging encounters a mining region, as well as the obsessive presence of the millions of
unburied victims whose souls harass those who have survived. Throughout the works, where pick-axes,
hoes or hands make good, the trench digging reveals all the anguish of having to keep one's job despite
the economic violencethat fills daily life.

This film aims to invert the classical approach of ethnographic films and to show how the native tribe sees
the person looking at it. The frustrations of the ethnologist and the speculations revolving around him are
the theme of the film. This is not a documentary on an exotic or very exotic society but on the exoticism of
the one who observes and on the art, perhaps, of exchanging looks.

Since the beginning of time, human beings all over the world have made use of plants for healing
purposes. These three documentaries tell the story of medicinal plants.
Two-thirds of the Earth's population still rely on some form of traditional medicine. In Africa, Asia and Latin
America, complex and subtle medical knowledge has survived to this day, handed down via
comprehensive oral traditions.
Meanwhile, in the West, with the development of medicinal chemistry and universal access to health care
during the first half of the 20th century, traditional healing practices and the use of medicinal plants
gradually came to be seen as esoteric pastimes.
After a gap of almost a century, the West is rediscovering the benefits of plant medicine. As a result of the
new recognition that medicine needs to centre around the person as a whole, we are taking another look
at this traditional discipline. Plant medicine, which has continued to thrive unabated in the southern
hemisphere, is now experiencing a revival in western countries.

This documentary looks at an organ which has no apparent reproductive or survival value but whose only
function is giving women pleasure, and it shows how the clitoris has been perceived and in our current
understanding. The program includes interviews with psychologists, sex therapists and the Australian
urologist Helen O'Connell, the only person to have studied the anatomy of the clitoris using modern
medical techniques.
With 8,000 nerve fibres at its tip the clitoris has more fibres than any other part of the human body
including the tongue or, in men, the penis. As writer Natalie Angier comments it is strange that women are
often perceived as having a more "muted" sexuality or as experiencing penis envy when the clitoris is far
more sensitive than the penis and enables many women to experience multiple orgasms - an experience
denied to men.
This film also looks at research on women's response to erotica and the debate on whether a female
version of Viagra - to address sexual response in women - is viable.

The enigma of Giacometti superbly unravelled.
To commemorate the centenary of the sculptor's birth, on October 10, 2001, this documentary reveals for
the first time the sublime singularity of the work and career of Alberto Giacometti, who died on January 11,
1966.
An unending quest brought into relief by those who knew or discovered the artist (Sabine Weiss, Balthus,
Jacques Dupin, Roger Montandon, Jean Starobinski, Ernest Scheidegger, Jean Laymarie and Ernest
Pignon Ernest).
To understand the extraordinary universe of this 20th century visionary, director Michel Van Zele explores
the various sources of Giacometti's inspiration and his unique conception of the head, be it sculpted,
drawn or painted.

CONTACTS is a collection of films about contemporary photography. Each film traces the development of
an individual photographer. With the help of the programme director, the photographer puts together a
retrospective, selecting images from his or her contact sheets, proof prints and end-prints to show how his
or her work has changed in character and meaning over the years.
Photographers use contact sheets and proofs of various kinds as an aid to memory or a log-book.
Exploring these visual jottings provides us with an invaluable insight into their working methods.
Over the years, the initial concept of the collection has evolved. CONTACTS now includes major
contemporary artists like Sophie Calle, Jeff Wall, Nan Goldin and Hiroshi Sugimoto, whose work makes
use of photographic techniques, alongside famous photo-journalists like William Klein, Helmut Newton,
Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson. CONTACTS has become an international reference for all
those who are interested in contemporary photography.

Attitudes to "primitive" art have run the whole gamut over the last five centuries. These objects, initially
collected as curios, then despised and looked-down on, before being studied as records of cultures, hailed
by a handful of modern painters as "sources of inspiration", and finally admitted to the contemporary
aesthetic canon, are now highly sought-after by growing numbers of "primitive art" enthusiasts, who are
prepared to pay large sums for them.

Celtic music is a phenomenon in Europe. It forms small oases in a musical landscape downgraded by the
globalization of majority cultures and the power of the media. The Interceltic Festival of Lorient each year
rallies artists from the Celtic countries whose cultures stem from these deep, age-old roots. The 20th
century Celt's imaginative and creative needs are still strong and continue to generate contemporary forms
of expression. In 26 years Celtic cultures have entered the modern world without losing their souls. The
festival brings together 4,500 musicians, singers, dancers, plastic artists, academics and filmmakers from
Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, Galicia, the Asturias, Brittany, the US, Canada,
Australia. The public, which grows each year, is faithful to this musical playdate.

It is mostly thanks to its performers that english musical tradition can be enjoyed. LONDON BRASS,a
tipically british chamber music ensemble composed by 10 musicians. They all play brass instruments, they
are all solists in big londonian orchestras. The interprets' quality is underlined by the immense variety of its
catalogue, from Gabrielli to John Lenon including Britten, Porter, Brahms, Nyman and so on.
From London to the british countryside or to Italy, the movie LONDON BRASS shows us brilliantly the way
of the baroque music from the begining to nowadays.

Cuba counts more than 12,000 musiciens and numerous family orchestras. Heirs of a rich and tumultuous
past, Cuban musicians majestically assimilate tradition and modernity. This lively and comprehensive
panorama, enhanced with archive footage and historic documents, divides the history of Cuban music into
three major periods: from colonization to independance (1511-1898), the Rumba years (1910-1937), and
those of Mambo, Cha-Cha and new rhythm (1937-1992).

Singer, piano virtuoso and black rights activist, Nina Simone has led an exciting life, vivid with contrast,
from the darkness of oblivion to the glittering lights of the stage and stardom.
In this intimist portrait of the artist, family and friends reveal her strengths and weaknesses, her reticent,
fragile, and excessive nature. But it is through her music that Nina best expresses herself; musical
excerpts abundantly illustrate her rich repertoire, and ensure the pleasure of rediscovering the genious of
her art.

"August" is a partly documentary and partly fictional film that portrays a month in the life of a filmmaker and
his wife. He wishes to document the month of August, since he believes taht this month constitutes a
methaphor of whatever is hateful in the State of Israel. She, on the contrary, is rather fond of August,
which represents to her all that is optimistic.
"August" depicts a portrait of the State of Israel. Unlike past portraits of Israel this is not based on the
exposure of the ideological forces, the political and bilateral conflicts or the historial complexity. It is a
portrait of the nature and character and personality of this country and of the people that lives in it.
A portrait of constant anger, of bitterness, of suspicion. The feeling that haunts the film is of a place set in
motionby a turbulence of anger and rage. A feeling that every man has an enemy, and that at every given
moment the person next to you could be that enemy, and that there is no better moment than this moment
to expose the potential of dispute between the two of you.

With the 96' election campaign approaching, director Avi Mograbi sets out to make a film about long time
infamous and admired political figure, former cabinet minister and legendary army general, Arik Sharon.
Having refused, for moral and political reasons, to serve in the 82' Lebanon war, initiated by minister of
defense Arik Sharon, Mograbi has a "personal" attitude towards him. In the making of the film, he comes to
see Sharon in a different light than expected. To his surprise he finds Sharon extremely likeable. In the
course of the campaign chase Mograbi sets aside his leftist political beliefs, gets surprisingly close to
Sharon, only to find himself, at the end, in a bizzare scene, dancing in a right wing rally with orthodox
religeous jews and singing in support of Netanyahu.
Mograbi's wife Tammi is always there, to support him in the beginning, warn him along the way when
things go in undesireable directions and eventually leave him when she thinks he has lost his political and
moral senses.
In this ironic fictious-documentary Mograbi tells the story of the making of the film about Arik Sharon that
turned into a domestic melodrama, threaded with his dreams about Sharon and dialogues with his wife.
But the true story told is of the impossible close encounter between left and right in present-day Israel.

This kaleidoscopic film-collage dealing with Klein's work relating to fashion and costume creation (with his
wife Jeanne) mixes excerpts from Klein's feature films with imagery from his reportage and fashion
photography, his TV commercials, his books, his paintings and even includes rare footage he shot
backstage of Yves Saint-Laurent's very first runaway show. The title suggests not only the fashion
sporadically played in Klein's production, but also the shifts in taste that have by turns cast him in the
spotlight or relegated him to the wings. Given the current revival of attention to nearly all aspects of his
career, Klein's now classic work remains very much in fashion.

Electronic happiness, a massive hoax. What will life be like in France in the year 2000? How easy will it be
to manipulate and program people? To find out, the Minister of the Future selects a model couple,
Jean-Michel and Claudine (André Dussollier and Anémone) and sets them up in an experimental
apartment in the heart of New City, which is still under construction. Taken in hand on arrival by two
psycho-sociologists (Zouc and Jacques Boudet), the two guinea pigs' lives are dictated by a demented
program. Every moment of their existence is dissected, their words, dreams, way of eating, being bored
and making love. At the beginning, the experiment is a game. The couple's adventures are shown on TV
with the whole country watching live. But gradually, in their closed world, things begin to go sour. What are
all these tests for? What exactly are all these technicians after? The plot twists and turns down to the final
send-up, a joyous explosion of slapstick. The experiment is a horrible flop like so many glorious initiatives
of our schizo society.
"It is incisive, never cursory, always subtle. The film makes you laugh from beginning to end, sometimes
so hard you cry." (Alain Rémond - Télérama)

Mister Freedom, an American righter of wrongs, a sort of spceage Rambo, arrives to solve France's
problems and free the country from the Yellow Peril and the Red Menace. After a series of cockeyed
adventures, fighting Red China Man (a gigantic balloon), Moujik Man (Philippe Noiret) and
Marie-Madeleine (Delphine Seyrig), he succeeds only in wreaking havoc and destruction, just as he did in
Vietnam. The style of the film is a no holds barred satire on the great events that shape our times. The
sets and costumes are inspired by hardcore comic-books. The plot contains crazy violence, twists and
turns, primeval politics, suspense, sex and slapstick. Audiences feel like they are at the circus until they
realize they are watching the news.
"Mister Freedom is the Ubu of our times, a thundering, allegorical farce that succeeds in recreating for the
cinema a trip from which the film draws its inspiration. William Klein's relentlessly inventive, burlesque
extravaganza is an invigorating and refreshing breath of fresh air." (Michel Capdenac - Les Lettres
Françaises)

For one of the series of monthly programs called "Who are you?" Polly Maggoo is the pseudo-portrait of a
super model. Done in a cocktail of styles - Méliès, cinéma vérité, Mack Sennet, Vogue, photo novellas,
tabloid press - much of modern mythology is systematically exploded.
Watching Polly Maggoo today is a rare pleasure, plus a real surprise - there's no movie like it before or
since. It abounds with visual inventions and right-on perceptions. Thirty years ahead of its time, it satirizes
TV's top model feeding frenzy, the world of fashion and brainwashing in general. The film's caustic
dialogue and wicked humor strike home unerringly. With terrible, and terribly funny, far-sightedness Klein
had foreseen the diarrhea of media bullshit.The film's designer justifies dressing women in aluminium with
a tirade of pretentious creator-speak. "You are a galvanizer and I am galvanized" yelps fashion-victim
Violette Leduc, as pundits launch into vapid psycho-historical explanations.
William Klein excels in the parody of all things-media: television commentators, phony interviews, useless
scoops, the True Confessions of a Ruritarian Prince, the concoction of a fairy tale romance - even the
vox-pops that foreshadow the spontaneous debates of May '68. He takes delight in the slaughter of his
targets while keeping the poetry of the images and design ever present.

Including original archive footage, film excerpts and reconstructions, this extraordinary documentary
retraces the life and career of Georges Méliès, who visualized and elaborated most of the techniques that
have been used throughout the century (special effects, trucquage, coloring, backdrops and costumes).
Georges Méliès is the ancestor of Disney, Spielberg and Lucas. All at once author, producer, director and
decorator, he is the legendary pioneer of the cinematographic show. Witnesses and historians tell his
story, guiding us throughout this exciting discovery of his life, his art and the unique techniques of an artist,
who, as of 1896, produced no less than 500 films in his dream factory.

Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, the Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, the Silver Surfer, Captain
America...and the roll-call goes on. These legendary urban heroes sprang from the imaginations of
American comic-book artists and screenwriters between the Great Depression and the Second World War
to combat the bugbears of the modern world. Mutant human beings with superhuman powers, they were
an expression not only of the fears and obsessions of the twentieth century, but also of American ideals.
Initially associated with the black-and-white conflict between America and Evil in the shape of Nazism and
then Communism, in the early 1960s they began to mirror the anxieties of a younger generation
confronted with rapid social change.
At once ambitious and entertaining, "Once upon a time the super heroes" brings the American super
heroes back to life with the aid of a treasure-trove of extracts from comic strips, feature films (including the
various Superman and Batman films) and cartoons, and a fascinating collection of interviews with
screenwriters, comic strip artists, film producers and directors, sociologists and so on.

From Mogambo to Out of Africa, from the pioneers of the documentary to the golden age of wildlife filming,
this is a kaleidoscope of the most breathtaking footage and still photographs of Africa ever taken.
Until the early 20th century, all Western populations knew about African wildlife was what they had seen in
botanical prints and trips to the zoo or read in the accounts of missionaries and explorers. Not surprisingly,
they were bowled over by the first big-screen footage of lions and elephants in their natural habitat.
From the late Thirties until the end of the Fifties, Hollywood was people's main source of images of Africa.
The movies perpetuated the myth of the great white hunter confronting a hostile wilderness full of savage
beasts. The white hunter was seen as the consummate adventure hero, and was played by actors like
Clark Gable and Stewart Granger - the biggest stars of their day.
Today, wildlife films have become a genre in their own right. Filming the wilderness offers insights into the
risks of wildlife filming, the techniques used to get pictures in differing circumstances, and the relationship
the cameraman has with the animals he is filming.

During the thirties in the US, cartoons were one of the major types of film. Walt Disney's contemporaries
constantly innovated and created new and original worlds... A considerable amount of research, and
reediting, done for ARTE by the best specialists of the genre, has saved a number of these cartoon
classics. With more than 50 films, we rediscover Alice, as well as the fabulous adventures of Popeye and
Olive. We also discover Bosco, Tom and Jerry, at the time when they were not yet a cat and a mouse...
Cartoon Factory is both a historical monument and a moment of pleasure for children aged 7 to 77.

A child, who we follow throughout the series, discovers, in each new program, a different art technique and
tells us a story inspired by the work he encounters (painting, sculpture, tapistry...).
The stories he tells are often very simple, closely linked with a childhood imagination: day/night,
house/country... Fairy tales and fables mingle with art.
