  • The Dallas Project

    Help Poppy de Villeneuve bring her feature length documentary The Dallas Project to life!

    The Dallas Project

    There are more strip clubs in the United States than anywhere else in the world. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that over 500,000 American citizens find employment at strip clubs. (And that’s just what’s on the books.) Yet despite the prevalence, our understanding of strippers and the club industry remains limited and subject to stereotypes. In this feature-length documentary, we hope to pull back the curtain and reveal a more complete picture of a world that's largely unknown. We aspire to uncover a new version of the female experience and to humanize an industry that has long been a source of criticism.

  • Shunpo

    Shunpo has been shortlisted for the Young Director Award 2013!

    Shunpo

    The winner will be announced during an award ceremony on June 20th at JW Marriot Theatre (Cannes) at 5pm.

    In 'Shunpo', Steven Briand has found an exciting way to marry his unique brand of visual camera trickery with his passion for modern dance choreography. In the film we see a bewildered, excited woman smashing through different environments: moving seamlessly from her stuffy office, to a Parisian rooftop, and finally to the serenity of the Turkish salt flats. It is dance that allows her to steady herself, but it is the power of editing that sends her flying between these impossibly varied locations. The film is a tantalising, mesmerising test of the boundary between cinema and dance.

    The screening is on Wednesday, May 22nd at 8:00PM at the Espace Miramar.

    Nowadays, what would a humorless society, without second degree look like? What would happen if, in this austere reality, a man started laughing? Life goes on: children are born, people die, and a lot of things happen in between. But this society has a little special something, it doesn’t know laughter. No one has ever laughed, derision, second degree, all that doesn’t exist. Until the day when a neuropsychiatry doctor is immediately conscripted by the army to examine a patient who has a strange particularity: he laughs. He even has a sense of humor.
