Evoking the intellectual and artistic vibrancy of New York in the 1960s, this film portrays a neglected contemporary sculptress, one of the few women who stood alongside Robert Morris and Bruce Nauman, and whose life was tragically cut short in 1970. Interviews with major figures in the art world are mixed with archival footage, photographs and excerpts from Eva Hesse’s voluminous journals, which give us an understanding of what she was thinking and feeling, adding a deeply personal and emotional touch to the portrait. This documentary, the first by American director Marcie Begleiter, is an inspired and conscientious account of a woman whose life was driven by a rich creative energy.

Benoît Rossel’s documentary is an indulgent portrait, with a touch of irony, of a mysterious occupation that is as often venerated as it is reviled and decried as imposture. He looks at the careers of major Western artists such as Valérie Jouve, Julie Mehretu, Ayako David-Kawauchi and Lawrence Weiner. By questioning the ambitions, doubts, strategies, compromises, lean times and good years of artists who epitomize the entire profession, the film presents a lively, playful and moving allegory of the figure of the artist in today’s society.

While in Philadelphia with the Cirque du Soleil, Élizabeth-Ann Doyle and Emmanuelle Hébert noted the widespread popularity of mural paintings. Inspired by the richness of this artistic form in terms of both visibility and socio-economic benefits, they decided to set up a similar project in their hometown. For ten years now, MU has been an open-air museum in Montreal. Using the city’s walls as its canvas, revealing its distinct nature and humanity, MU celebrates both the history of Montreal and its cultural diversity. This short film by Janice Zolf captures these giant murals, along with the artists’ insights into this meeting between art and citizens.

This documentary follows American video artist Bill Viola and his wife and collaborator Kira Perov over a twelve-year period as they undertake and complete the installation of two permanent video works, Mary and Martyrs, in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. In documenting Viola’s approach, the seasoned art-documentary director Gerald Fox captures the essence of Viola’s creative process, along with the significant changes that occur in these two figures over the lengthy time period. He also looks back at the career of this seminal artist, who since the early 1970s has taken video art to a new level of acceptance in contemporary art.

The inter-war period brims with enthusiasm and illusions, a desire for social, moral, artistic and political revolution. In the early 1930s, the rise of fascism compels artists to become politically engaged. Between fascism and communism, Europe is being torn apart. In 1936 the Spanish Civil War erupts. Malraux and Hemingway write about it, while Capa and Gerda Taro take photographs that raise public awareness worldwide. In April 1937, the bombing of Guernica inspires Picasso’s mural-sized Guernica, a symbol of Franco’s savage militarism and fascism in general. The Spanish Republic is lost, and Spanish Civil War ends with Franco’s victory.

The Second World War breaks out and France mobilizes its troops. After the debacle of June 1940 and the occupation by Nazi Germany, many artists and intellectuals attempt to flee Europe. Those who remain, formerly friends, tear each other apart after choosing sides: some resist; other collaborate. Many adapt to the situation, while others pay for their actions with their lives. After the war ends, Paris is reborn and discovers the marvellous Les Enfants du paradis, Jacques Prévert’s hymn to freedom directed by Marcel Carné.

In this film from the documentary series Art in the Twenty-First Century, artists from Mexico City exit their homes and studios to use the expanding megalopolis as their canvas. Reflecting order and chaos, narration and deconstruction, the personal and the political, four artists—Natalia Almada, Minerva Cuevas, Damián Ortega and Pedro Reyes—seek to transform the world in which they live. The artists present everyday materials as artworks, mine recognizable images for their poetic potential, and take their art to the streets. In the project undertaken by Pedro Reyes, for example, objects become vectors of change: with the help of children, he transforms firearms into artistically and socially powerful musical instruments and sculptures.

American artist Jenny Holzer’s medium is language. Known for her LED signs and giant projectors, she transforms interior and exterior spaces into textual landscapes, questioning our perceptions and the ways we are influenced by media and politics. An in situ artist above all, she has installed her trademark luminous signs on city streets since the 1980s. In this episode of director Claudia Müller’s Femmes artistes series, Jenny Holzer employs her favourite techniques in an exhibition presenting the works of 24 women on a moving LED video wall. Her aim: to illustrate all the different fields and styles of female art throughout history.

Alain Planès is a virtuoso performer of both classical and contemporary music, a versatile and demanding musician and ardent enthusiast of painting and poetry. From his relationship with the visual arts and words, he derives the meaning and power of his creativity. Although he has always avoided the glare of the media, he agreed here to reveal his sources of inspiration and musical choices. Looking back at his artistic path, from his very early days on the piano, his conservatory studies in Paris and the United States, and the launch of his career in the 1970s, this profile by Dominique Lemonnier immerses us in the world of the artist. In her directorial debut, the violinist offers a candid and intimate portrait of the pianist, shedding light on his influences and pivotal encounters.

The year 2016 marked the 500th anniversary of the death of one of Holland’s most celebrated painters: Hieronymous Bosch. A contemporary of Da Vinci, Bosch was at the crossroads of mediaeval symbolism and Renaissance humanism. His authenticated works are rare: twenty-five paintings and eight drawings, all exhibited in the world’s greatest museums. In this sensitive and poetic portrait, we enter the imagination of the painter via the techniques of animation. Through the superb visual effects created by co-director Eve Ramboz, the paintings come to life, displaying all their beauty and power. By decrypting his works in the context of his time, the film lifts the veil on the man and his beliefs; it also examines the relationships between Bosch, the Church and science in an age in which these two visions of the world were starting to clash.

Exploring universal themes of identity, dreams, family and love, Rebels on Points is the first-ever documentary celebrating the world-famous Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. The all-male, comic ballet company was founded over forty years ago on the heels of New York’s Stonewall riots, and now enjoys a huge cult following around the world. The film combines behind-the-scenes sequences with rich archival material to recount the personal histories of the dancers. With numerous clips from gender-bending dance performances in North America, Europe and Japan, Rebels on Points shows that a ballerina can be much more than a woman who dances, becoming an act of revolution in a tutu.

The Great Russian Choral Tradition

The Orthodox Church’s ban on the use of instruments in liturgical music had the effect of stimulating the creation of a peerless sacred repertoire for a cappella choir. The coming to power of the Romanovs in the 17th century opened the door to European influence, and Russian composers appropriated both Western polyphony and concertantestyle without, however, betraying their tradition.
