Russian Music of Love and Death

In this recital, she eagerly revisits works dear to her since childhood on themes of love and death, including the famous Diabolical Suggestion and Roméo and Juliet by Prokofiev, as well as Scriabin’s Sonata-Fantasy No. 2, whose finale recalls the Funeral March from Chopin’s own Sonata No. 2 in B-flat Minor.

In The Heir, director Édith Jorisch discovers the incredible hidden story of her grandfather, Georges Jorisch. Born into the Jewish intellectual community in Vienna, Georges grew up in a family of art collectors whose vast collection included works by Gustav Klimt and Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller. In 1938, when Georges was 10 years old, the paintings were stolen by German troops and the family herded into Nazi internment camps. Georges Jorisch survived the war and emigrated to Montreal. Seventy years later, seeking justice for his family and children, he sets out to recover the paintings that were taken from them.

The music of Bach enabled pianist Zhu Xiao-Mei to cope with the worst challenges of her life. After experiencing all of the consequences of the Mao regime and the Cultural Revolution, she emigrated to Paris in 1980. She was deeply marked by the great cultural darkness that came over her country under Mao. She was publicly humiliated, her teachers were intimidated and her musical scores were burned. In this personal and touching documentary about the immense power of music, Paul Smaczny tells Zhu Xiao-Mei’s story as she agrees to return to China for the first time and discovers a country transformed.

Being a female conductor means being an exception. Even today. When a woman stands on the podium she is, in most cases, “the first”: the first to lead a world-class orchestra, the first to conduct a certain work, the first to win such and such a prize. For decades, this sensationalized character has been the norm. Why are there so few women at the helm of world-class orchestras? How did this relatively new profession develop such a notorious mythos? What roles do power and masculinity play? Are things beginning to change? This documentary takes a closer look at the situation, interweaving historical footage, interviews with experts from various disciplines, and the words of some of the greatest women conductors of yesterday and today.

The trailblazing work of Diego Velázquez marks a vital period in the history of painting. Ceaselessly searching for truth through light and space, Velázquez was a documentary maker before his time. The film attempts to discover what makes this Spanish Baroque painter so unique, allowing us to appreciate the artistic and aesthetic revolution he triggered. From Venus at Her Mirror to Las Meninas, the film attempts to define the powerful emotional relationship established between Velázquez and his audience, between the painter’s eye and that of the spectator.

In this episode from the series Femmes artistes, the history of art from a female perspective is recounted through the favourite works of Annette Messager, one of Europe’s most celebrated visual artists. Since the 1970s, Messager has fought against the invisibility of women by parodying female artists, their works and their preoccupations. In a virtual exhibition, she talks about the artists who inspire her, such as Alina Szapocznikow and Eva Hesse, forgotten for too long, and Elika Hedayat and Emma Dusong, two young artists.

The documentary series Music in Times of War and Revolution explores the connections between music and politics. In this second segment, Anne-Kathrin Peitz explores the lives and the work of a lesser-known generation of Russian composers that includes Arthur Lourié, Nikolai Roslavets, Alexander Mosolov, Sergei Prokofiev, Leon Theremin and Arseny Avraamov. Adventurous, flirting with futurism and deconstructing conventional musical codes, this avant-garde group, which lived through the First World War, the October Revolution and the birth of the Soviet Union under Stalin, was banned, forgotten or erased from the musical map. They are rediscovered here in a skillfully crafted film that looks at Russia past and present, music and life, cultural and political contexts and individual destinies.

Nastia, aged 13, and her 7-year-old sister Polina, share a dream of becoming star ballerinas. Admitted to a prestigious Russian ballet academy, they are both completely devoted to their rigorous and demanding training. Victor Kossakovsky’s documentary presents their close relationship and their love of dance, as Nastia encourages her sister to “dance with an open soul.” It tells their story with an economy of words and mirrors the art of ballet: at once sublime and solemn, stylish and understated.

Adapted from Dan Franck’s Le temps des bohèmes, this six-part series immerses viewers in the artistic and literary life of Paris from the early 20th century to the end of World War Two. Using the codes of fiction and through archival documents and original animated sequences, the series looks at the lives of those who left their mark on this incredible period in modern art.

After his release from hospital, Apollinaire discovered wartime Paris. In Montparnasse, foreign artists were dying of starvation. Most of them were Jews fleeing antisemitism in the East, who lived in an artists’ residence called La Ruche. Soutine, the most destitute of the Russians, struck up a friendship with Modigliani, the most notable of the Italians. In 1917, Apollinaire staged his play Les mamelles de Tirésias, which he subtitled Drame surréaliste, coining the word that would be adopted around the world. One year later, Apollinaire succumbed to the Spanish flu. Modigliani died on January 24, 1920. His funeral, attended by all the Montparnasse artists, brought the Bohemian era to a definitive end.

Adapted from Dan Franck’s Le temps des bohèmes, this six-part series immerses viewers in the artistic and literary life of Paris from the early 20th century to the end of World War Two. Using the codes of fiction and through archival documents and original animated sequences, the series looks at the lives of those who left their mark on this incredible period in modern art.

The war is over. The celebrations begin. Montparnasse pulsates to the rhythms of jazz and animated cafés. Paris is a monumental party. In response to the absurdity of war, the Dadaist and Surrealist revolutions are launched. Leading them are the “three musketeers”: André Breton, Louis Aragon and Philippe Soupault, backed by Man Ray, Robert Desnos, Tristan Tzara and many others. In 1919, the first literary work of the Surrealist movement appears: Les champs magnétiques. Kiki, the model beloved of painters known as the Queen of Montparnasse, has a tumultuous affair with Man Ray before he leaves her for Lee Miller. Aragon meets Elsa Triolet, Picasso divides his time between two women and Salvador Dali makes his grand appearance among the Surrealists.

While some female photographers are today considered big stars, most remain largely unknown to the public. With interest in photography on the upswing and the theory of the genre the subject of debate, this documentary pays tribute to important female photographers. Moving between past and present, Manuelle Blanc and Julie Martinovic’s documentary features commentary by four experts in photography—Marta Gili, Michel Poivert, Marie Robert and Abigail Solomon Godeau—and four internationally renowned photographers—Jane Evelyn Atwood, Sarah Moon, Dorothée Smith and Christine Spengler. From pioneers to contemporary figures, the film gives long-overdue visibility to many women who have been unfairly overlooked by art historians and questions whether there is something inherently female in the artistic process of “women photographers.”

From the Renaissance to the beginning of the twentieth century, documentary filmmaker Manelle Blanc looks at the lives of nine female painters who struggled to achieve recognition as artists.Through their ingenuity and courage, they somehow managed to win the respect of their peers during their lifetime. But what place do they hold today in the history of art? The film also sheds light on the subjective nature of the official story. Moving from painting to painting and through various eras and styles, with commentary by a number of art experts, this finely crafted documentary tells a little-known story that is long overdue: that of women who left their mark as painters

A full reading of Écorces (2011) by its author, French philosopher and art historian Georges Didi-Huberman. In the manner of a photo story, the film illustrates thought in action on the subject of the image. In his text Didi-Huberman questions, among other issues, the status of his own photographic documentation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. He also refers to the controversy surrounding the publication of his book Images malgré tout (2004), and the opposition from Claude Lanzmann. We are riveted by these spoken reflections, by the fascinating photographic images that turn into movement.
