Author's bio text

Le Petit Nicolas - Qu'est-ce qu'on attend pour e?tre heureux —  24.10, 10:30
Leaning over a large blank sheet of paper, Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny bring little Nicolau to life. As the narrative progresses, Nicolau enters the studio of his creators and listens to them about their journeys, their secrets, their childhoods and this creative friendship...

La guerre des lulus — 25.10, 10:30
At the beginning of the First World War, in a village in Picardy, four inseparable friends, Lucas, Luigi, Lucien and Ludwig, form the Lulus gang. These orphans are always ready to join forces to face Octave's rival band or to escape the surveillance of Abbot Turpin... When the orphanage at Valencourt Abbey is urgently evacuated, the Lulus disappear. Forgotten behind the enemy front line, they are left to fend for themselves in the middle of the conflict. Quickly accompanied by Luce, a young girl separated from her parents, they decide at all costs to reach Switzerland, the "country that is never at war"... and here they are, thrown, with all the innocence and naivety of their age, into on an adventure for which nothing and no one prepared them!

En corps — 25.10, 15:00
Elise, 26 years old, is an excellent dancer. During a performance, she is injured and discovers that she will no longer be able to dance. From then on, her life turns upside down and Elise has to learn to repair herself... Between Paris and Brittany, through encounters and experiences, disappointments and hopes, Elise approaches a companion of contemporary dance. This new way of dancing will give you a new drive and a new way of life.

Capitães de Abril  25.10, 19:00
The film's story is based on the military coup d'état that took place in Portugal on April 25, 1974, and pays tribute to the young soldiers who rescued their homeland from that dark time, notably Salgueiro Maia.

La cour des miracles — 26.10, 10:30
Diretora de uma escola primária em Seine-Saint-Denis, Zahia vê-se ameaçada perante a abertura de uma nova escola privada. Associa-se então a Marion, uma jovem professora, para criar a primeira «escola verde» dos subúrbios parisienses. Mas a resistência da equipa pedagógica não ajuda…

Grand Paris — 26.10, 15:00
Leslie, a disillusioned young man from the suburbs, drags his best friend Renard to a dubious project on the other end of the Île de France. At a construction site for the future metro line - the Grand Paris Express - they discover a mysterious artefact. Enough to make quick money. But as they travel, the suburbs of Paris become the scene of strange phenomena.

Jane par Charlotte — 26.10, 19:00
Charlotte Gainsbourg began filming her mother, Jane Birkin, to look at her in a way she had never done before. The modesty of the two in front of each other had never allowed such an approach. But, through the camera, the ice is broken and an unprecedented conversation takes place over several years, gradually erasing the two artists and revealing them naked in an intimate conversation that is simultaneously unprecedented and universal, revealing a mother facing a daughter.

Rookies — 27.10, 10:30
In the heart of Paris, a high school faces a crazy challenge: integrate students from working-class neighborhoods and break the cycle of school failure through hip-hop dance. Allons enfants is the story of this unique experience in France.

À la belle étoile — 28.10, 15:00 
Since he was little, Yazid has had a passion for pastry. Throughout his childhood, Yazid spent time in several foster families and developed a strong temper. But to succeed in the elitist world of pastry, the young man will have to learn to control himself. From Épernay to Paris, passing through Monaco, he will work with the greatest pastry chefs to become the best and try to fulfill his dream of winning the world pastry champion competition.

Reste un peu — 28.10, 19:00 
After three years of living the American dream, Gad Elmaleh decided to return to France. He misses his family and friends. At least, that's the official answer to justify his return... because Gad didn't return (just) for his mother's couscous. No, she's another woman who came to Paris to meet... the Virgin Mary.
