By 1967 Jean-Luc Goddard was already considered a masterpiece with his masterpieces. Disobedience, Fou in Pierrot And Shortness of breath, Curve The Chinese With his wife, Ann Vyajenski. The film is a failure, and when May-68 erupts, the filmmaker begins to question himself and becomes obsessed with Marxist speeches …
Our comment: Irrelevant portrait of a filmmaker full of humor and tenderness. He portrays him as a lover who is intimidating and touching in his quest for truth. The film also owes a lot to Louis Garrell.

Unmatched Trains: Croatia (2021)
Globotrotter Philippe Gagler discovers the beauty and culture of Croatia by adopting the country’s railways from Dubrovnik to Zagreb.
Our comment: A program filmed in Croatia, a time consuming Philippe Goulger wanders from north to south, using trains like no other to see others. Sometimes there are no funny and touching pictures depicting Croatian people with funny occupations. All the salt of this program never calms the viewer.
Magazine presented by Philip Goulger (2021).

Japan, at the roots of the sun
Situated on the border of four seas and oceans, the Japanese archipelago has always had a strong connection with the elements that shaped the lives of its inhabitants. A paddy farmer, another tea farmer, an oyster farmer, a Buddhist monk, a katana blacksmith, an independent champion, a gecko (Kyoto Geisha), or even a young karate witness to their daily lives and their lives. To the spiritual element that surrounds them and their closeness to traditions. At the heart of the testimonies, there is a strong conviction on the part of each hero: the scale of human life is insignificant in the face of the omnipresent power of nature.
Our comment: Director Xavier Lefebvre tried to understand the peculiarities of the Japanese spirit. The images of the natural diversity of the island community are comforting and beautiful, and the chosen characters skillfully express the spirit of this country.
Documentary by Xavier Lefebvre (2018).
