A film by Tessa Louise-Salomé
In France, Leos Carax has long been branded as a mysterious, solitary filmmaker with an aversion to both the media and the public at large. Yet outside of his home country, his work takes precedence over this public image, and he is recognized as an icon of world cinema. 'Mr leos caraX' tackles this complex artist—a cult figure since his first feature—by plunging the spectator into the poetic and visionary world of his films.
By means of exclusive archival materials, interviews with his closest collaborators (such as Denis Lavant), and excerpts from his favorite films, this documentary attempts to put together a few pieces of the Carax puzzle. What emerges is an immersive and dreamlike portrait inspired by his singular artistic vision. Sit back and let yourself drift into the world of this unparalleled visual poet…

Paris, at night. This is where Jeni, Wenceslas, Christine, Pascal and the others live. Homeless, they haunt the streets and bridges, and corridors of the metro; on the edge of a world where society no longer offers protection. They face us and they talk.

For many years, I have been looking for the missing picture: a photograph taken between 1975 and 1979 by the Khmer Rouge when they ruled over Cambodia... On its own, of course, an image cannot prove mass murder, but it gives us cause for thought, prompts us to meditate, to record History. I searched for it vainly in the archives, in old papers, in the country villages of Cambodia.Today I know: this image must be missing. I was not really looking for it; would it not be obscene and insignificant?So I created it.What I give you today is neither the picture nor the search for a unique image, but the picture of a quest: the quest that cinema allows.

The exponential increase of the world population and the growing human activity it generates, especially with the boom of transport and exchanges of all sorts, is creating a global ecological disturbance.
In one generation the issue of invasive species has become crucial. After the destruction of natural habitat, they have become the second major biodiversity threat. It is a problem as preoccupying as global warming! With the slight difference that no one seems to care.
An invasive species is a vegetal or animal species that wildly spreads when outside its natural environment, to the extent of threatening and irrevocably modifying the ecosystems it conquers.
Our documentary will for the first time explore the problem, starting with the French territory (itself threatened by 37 different types of vertebrate animals) to open on a worldwide consideration the public needs to be aware of.

A group of friends in a Tel Aviv suburb get together to watch Universong, a Eurovision-like television song contest. They'd all like to forget the stress of their daily lives. Yael is a former beauty queen who is unfulfilled by her job as a corporate lawyer; Dana is a stressed-out aide to a cabinet minister and timidly tries to please her traditional father; Anat , has a successful bakery but an unsuccessful marriage; Keren is a shy blogger; Efrat is a frustrated singer- songwriter whose career has stalled; and Ofer is a nursery-school teacher who is upset that his boyfriend, a spokes-model for his family's famous brand of hummus, is still in the closet and won't publicly acknowledge their romance. When the night of the Universong final rolls around, they gather to watch and are depressed by the lifelessness of the Israeli entry, a parody of many recent offerings, a flashy, grating song about "amour." After they realize that Anat is distraught over the crisis in her marriage, they compose a song to cheer her up. As a lark, Ofer enters their cellphone video of it in next year's contest, and it becomes Israel's entry.
