Showing schedule

La terre de la folie
Date: Wednesday 2 November, 2011 at 19:30 hrs
Director: Luc Moullet (France – 2009 – 1h30)

"The great-great-nephew of the great-grandfather of my great-great-grandmother one day killed the village mayor, his wife, and the village policeman with an axe - guilty, as far as he was concerned, of having moved his goat ten meters. This gave me a good starting point. There were also other manifestations of a similar sort in the family."
From a family in the Southern Alps, Luc Mollet, with his imperturbable seriousness and off-hand humor, studies the causes and consequences of these local psychic phenomena.

La Danse, le ballet de l'Opera de Paris
Date: Wednesday 9 November, 2011 at 19:30 hrs
Director: Frederick Wiseman (France – 2009 – 2h38)

Frederick Wiseman, documentarian pioneer, set up his camera and let it roll for nine weeks within the heart of the Op?ra de Paris ballet.
From the costume department workshop to the performances where the prima ballerina and premier danseur shine, La Danse leads us behind the scenes of the prestigious institution and allows us to see the work of all those who contribute to creating the Op?ra's exceptional stage shows.

Nenette
Date: Wednesday 16 November, 2011 at 19:30 hrs
Director: Nicolas Philibert (France – 2010 – 1h10)

Born in 1969 in the forests of Borneo, Nenette recently turned forty. It is very rare that an orang-utang reaches such an age. An inhabitant of the zoo at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris since 1972, she is now older than any member of the staff working there. The undisputed star of the place, each day she sees hundreds of visitors pass by in front of her cage. Naturally, everyone has their own special comment to make.

Malraux - Asie
Date: Wednesday 23 November, 2011 at 19:30 hrs
Director: Anne Imbert (France – 2009 - 1h00)

This documentary includes the best lectures given during the conference devoted to Andr? Malraux in February 2009 at the Guimet Museum, that is to say the lectures by Raoul Marc Jennar (? Malraux et le Cambodge : du proc?s de Phnom Penh au combat anticolonialiste ?), Jean Lacouture (? Malraux et la question nationale vietnamienne ?), Claude Travi ((? Malraux. Un ?crivain et la Chine ?), Jean-Claude Larrat (? Malraux et le mythe de la Chine dans les ann?es 20 ?), Olivier Germain-Thomas (? Andr? Malraux, le sams?ra et la m?tamorphose ?) and Michel Cazenave (? Malraux, Shiva et les upanishad ?). 
Les arrivants
Date: Wednesday 30 November, 2011 at 19:30 hrs
Director: Claudine Bories and Patrice Chagnard (France – 2010 – 1h53)

Caroline is young, impulsive, quick-tempered. Colette, a little older, is compassionate and disorganized. Families that have come from Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Eritrea, and elsewhere face both women when seeking exile in France. Each day more people arrive, with or without passports, with or without luggage, by the planeload or in tarpaulin covered trucks... How do we cope with this overflowing tide of distress and need? The film recounts this face to face encounter, at times tense and explosive, moving and amusing, where everyone defends their position.
