The Best Actress Award went to young Danish actress Marie Reuther, who plays a grieving teenage influencer in Kamikaze, while the prize for the best actor was made collective by rewarding the Israeli interpreters of The Echo of Your Voice, created and directed by filmmaker Tom Shoval.

“Germinal” wins the public prize

The OCS platform emerged as a winner in the French competition since it won two of the three prizes awarded. The one for the best series crowned the comedy Young and Golri, created by Agnès Hurstel (who is also the interpreter), Victor Saint Macary and Léa Domenach, while Ariane Labed was named best actress for The Opera. Daniel Njo Lobé won the Best Actor Award for The code, detective series which will soon be broadcast by France 2.

The International Panorama section, whose jury was chaired by our colleague Florence Aubenas, awarded the prize for the best series to The Last Socialist Artefact, bittersweet Croatian comedy about the endless aftermath of the socialist era. As Blackport, The Last Socialist Artefact took its first steps during the Co-Pro Pitching Sessions of Séries Mania, workshops during which the creators propose their projects to producers and broadcasters. In the same section, Colombian production Life of colors, which sets in motion characters crossing the boundaries of gender and community identities, received the special jury prize.

Finally, and not surprisingly, it is Germinal which won the audience award. The adaptation of Emile Zola’s novel, created by Julien Lilti and directed by David Hourrègue. The imposing and dynamic proletarian fresco, already available on Salto, soon to be broadcast on France 2, had been presented on the site of the Arenberg pit, in the mining basin, in front of an audience of former miners or their descendants.

FRANCE 2 – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 AT 10.55 p.m. – DOCUMENTARY

“The big TV channels misinform. They are not telling the truth. “ Catherine, a psychoanalyst, affirms it calmly in front of the camera, alongside her husband Gérard, a retired engineer, from the pretty living room of their Ile-de-France house. The bucolic charm contrasts with the words of this “CSP ++” couple who prefers conspiracy, even pedosatanist theses, conveyed by Internet users, such as Silvano Trotta, Jean-Jacques Crèvecœur or… Pierre Barnérias, co-director of Hold-Up, a documentary full of untruths released in November 2020 and viewed 6 million times.

Article reserved for our subscribers Read also The funny duo behind “Hold-up”, the documentary with a conspiratorial hint

Hold-Up was totally funded by donations. Including that of Catherine and Gérard, who paid 1,000 euros before being invited to a private screening on March 13, 2020 for the generous donors. Struck to note that this was not an undereducated audience, but nevertheless impossible to reason – and to make reason… -, the documentary by Sylvain Louvet (Albert-Londres Prize 2020) and Aude Favre presented in “ Further investigation ”, addresses precisely this facet of the conspiratorial planet: the financing of“ fake news ”sites.

The latter would generate some 2.6 billion dollars (2.2 billion euros) in advertising revenue per year, according to a study by NewsGuard and Comscore. The two journalists, helped by a panel of 50 representative citizens, first listed the brands present on these sites, then tried to meet with officials from these advertisers – Bouygues, Google, etc.

” It’s not my problem “

But also the public service. Contacted by telephone about the presence of an advertisement encouraging taxpayers to declare their income via the Internet, a representative of the Ministry of Finance asserts without complex: « Mrs. Michu, if she thinks carrots can cure cancer, that’s not my problem. These people still have to declare their income. It’s still an audience, there is an audience! It’s not a crippling target. “

France Televisions itself was seized with its hand in the bag, with three advertisements on the site of FranceEvening – classified red because it “Seriously violates basic journalistic principles”, recalls the documentary. However, the question is not asked of any person in charge of the channel who devotes his evening to this explosive subject …

Joined on August 30, Sylvain Louvet reveals that he ousted two interviews, including that of Vincent Flibustier, “Who assumes to mix true and false information on [son site] NordPress. He told me : Bullshit is a big cake and I wanna take my share. » Hopefully, this aptly named Flibustier will be invited to the set of “Complément d’études”, now presented by Tristan Waleckx (also the Albert-Londres prize).

Meeting punctuated by laughter with the creator of the sitcom Young and Golri, broadcast from Thursday, September 2 on OCS, on the occasion of the Séries Mania festival where the series was presented in the French competition category.

The story of “Jeune et Golri”, which puts a little girl and her very young mother-in-law face to face, smacks of lived experience… What is the genesis of the series?

When I was 25, I fell in love with a boy who had a cat. So I became the mother-in-law of a cat who hated me and that I hated, who vomited on me the first time I slept with the boy in question… I hated her and yet she became my best friend , my dear daughter. At first I called my father to complain, and he answered me very correctly: “My dear, it could be an 8 year old girl hating you, so feel happy because the cat is going to die at some point.” “

Why not have kept the history of the cat?

Running a child three hours a day under a global pandemic is not easy, maybe running a cat would have been easier! In terms of dramaturgy, I was interested in directing a small and a large one, Young and Golri is a kind of buddy movie, from Dumb and Dumber between Prune and Alma. I needed a mini-Plum, an inverted mirror. Prune thinks she is consistently the youngest, when she meets Alma, she finally becomes someone’s old man.

Between little Alma, Francis, Prune’s parents, “Jeune et Golri” is a transgenerational series. Did you want the series to be for everyone?

Yes. I am convinced that you have to write popular comedies. Not only is this the only thing I know how to do, but I want to do it everyday! For each age there are characters in the works, who are in failure in one part of their life and need the encounter with the other to repair themselves and wake up. This is what touches me. In contact with Francis, Prune will grow up; Francis will wake up in contact with Prune; Alma will finally become a child again… It is this idea of ​​reparation that I find beautiful in love stories.

I am touched by people who make jokes to protect themselves. This is the stand-up: people who take the stage every night to tell jokes on subjects that tie their stomachs.

In fact, Roberto Benigni was the guest of the opening night of the festival, where he received, from the hands of Jane Campion, a Golden Lion for his entire career. Underlining the perpetual joy of the actor and filmmaker, against all odds, the director of The piano lesson, Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1993, made the audience laugh by comparing Benigni to “An exploding bottle of prosecco”. In 2020, the festival was held in the absence of international stars and the Golden Lion was awarded to one of the few American films present, Nomadland, by Chloé Zhao. But neither the director nor the actress Frances McDormand had been able to make the trip.

This year, the Mostra directed by Alberto Barbera offers films from 59 countries, and its general delegate, Alberto Barbera, has continued to extol in the media the ” high quality “ works, in this delicate period for the production of films.

“If now I forget my island. Lives and Death of Mike Brant ”, by Serge Airoldi, L’Antilope, 160 p., € 17, digital € 10.

Who knows what a death hides, a so-called voluntary death, by precipitation, fall, abandonment? Who knows what gravity, literally, takes away from or adds to a body that renounces the world? What meaning should be given to the void into which the one who knows its black echoes throws himself? “We never write what we want to write, (…) we only write a vague mystery which falls to us “ : it is with these words that Serge Airoldi invites us to lift a shroud, that of the singer Mike Brant, who committed suicide on April 25, 1975, at the age of 28, by throwing himself from the top of number 6 on rue Erlanger, in the 16e district of Paris.

Make no mistake: If now I forget my island, subtitle Life and Death of Mike Brant, is not one of those books which takes a pop topic hostage to decline it like a song. The reader will realize this quite quickly. The homage, here, is not of a musical order, or else, if there is music, it is that, broken, stifled, of the refugees, of the deportees, which innervates the whole book, gives it its accents. , lends him his breaks, infuses him with his refrains. From Airoldi’s pen, Mike Brant is never a pretext – let’s say he’s even quite the opposite, a after-text –, and it is the story – human, political, tragic – which precedes it which the author seizes upon, as if to better block a secret “Helplessness ».

Where are we ? What date, what suffering, what wandering? Erlanger Street is still far away.

“If now I forget my island. Lives and Death of Mike Brant ”, by Serge Airoldi, L’Antilope, 160 p., € 17, digital € 10.

Who knows what a death hides, a so-called voluntary death, by precipitation, fall, abandonment? Who knows what gravity, literally, takes away from or adds to a body that renounces the world? What meaning should be given to the void into which the one who knows its black echoes throws himself? “We never write what we want to write, (…) we only write a vague mystery which falls to us “ : it is with these words that Serge Airoldi invites us to lift a shroud, that of the singer Mike Brant, who committed suicide on April 25, 1975, at the age of 28, by throwing himself from the top of number 6 on rue Erlanger, in the 16e district of Paris.

Make no mistake: If now I forget my island, subtitle Life and Death of Mike Brant, is not one of those books which takes a pop topic hostage to decline it like a song. The reader will realize this quite quickly. The homage, here, is not of a musical order, or else, if there is music, it is that, broken, stifled, of the refugees, of the deportees, which innervates the whole book, gives it its accents. , lends him his breaks, infuses him with his refrains. From Airoldi’s pen, Mike Brant is never a pretext – let’s say he’s even quite the opposite, a after-text –, and it is the story – human, political, tragic – which precedes it which the author seizes upon, as if to better block a secret “Helplessness ».

One of the most famous Greek composers has just passed away. One of his most notorious public figures as well, for whom political commitment was inseparable from artistic commitment. Composer of the film’s soundtrack Zorba the Greek (directed by Michael Cacoyannis, released in 1964) which made popular the dance of the sirtaki (invented for the needs of the film), Mikis Theodorakis, symbol of the resistance against the dictatorship, emblematic figure of the Greek political life, leaves behind him a dense work and the memory of a man standing, committed to the left, revolted and resisting to the end of his strength. He died Thursday, September 2 in Athens, at the age of 96, we learned from a hospital source, confirmed by several Greek media.

Mikis Theodorakis was born on July 29, 1925 on the island of Chios, near Turkey. He said he was passionate about music since childhood. At 12, he was already putting down his first compositions on paper and giving his first concert at 17. During the occupation of Greece during the Second World War by German, Italian and Bulgarian troops, he secretly followed courses at the Athens Conservatory, militated in the resistance, was twice arrested and suffered torture. During the civil war which tears Greece apart after the Liberation, a pugnacious communist militant, he again experiences arrests and torture.

A year after the end of the chaos, in 1950, he graduated from the conservatory where his work was created. Axes Gonia. He left for Crete and founded his first orchestra. Later, winner of a scholarship, he went to France where he attended classes with Eugène Bigot and Olivier Messiaen at the Paris Conservatory. Over the course of his compositions (symphonic music, chamber music, cantatas and oratorios, ballet music…), he becomes an appreciated classical composer.

Classical and popular music

“When he succeeded in entering the circle of young internationally recognized composers, he discovered Greek popular music”, writes his biographer Guy Wagner, author of Mikis Théodorakis: a life for Greece (Editions Phi, Luxembourg, 2000). « What I admire about him is that he left to make a career in classical music, but when he started to play his works in front of the bourgeoisie, he said to himself I don’t wanna make music for these people, and he started to compose songs ”, comment for The world, the Greek singer Angélique Ionatos, one of the performers, with the contralto Maria Farantouri, the most faithful and talented of Theodorakis.

Garrett M. Graff, reached on the phone by “Le Monde des livres”, evokes the sources of September 11th. Oral history, the ambition of this book and some of the facts that marked it by immersing itself in the unfolding of this day of September 11, 2001.

Also read the right sheets: ” September 11th. An oral history ”, by Garrett M. Graff: exclusive extracts from the astonishing story of the day of September 11, 2001

After the attacks, did the need very early on to record and archive the testimonies of survivors?

Many institutions had the good sense to do so soon after these attacks, whether at the national level, like StoryCorps and the National Museum and Memorial of 9/11, or more locally, like the FDNY, the firefighters of New York, which recorded the memories of several hundred firefighters, paramedics and emergency responders as part of its post-response report. Most of these documents, however, had never been used or even transcribed to paper.

How to explain it?

It took a long time to understand the full scope and magnitude of this tragedy. It’s a story that has struck so many people in so many places at once… I haven’t counted them, but the scenes described in my book must take place in at least half of the states of the United States – and I tell only part of the day. We’re talking about it as an event that happened in New York, Washington, and Shanksville, but the truth is, the whole country felt the fear and chaos. Skyscrapers have been evacuated in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and countless other cities – even Disney World has closed, for the first time in its history.

What was your goal in putting together this panoramic puzzle?

The book aims to capture how Americans lived that day, from coast to coast. For the sake of balance, I have tried to vary the locations and to mention as much as possible the agencies, companies and organizations that have been affected or involved in the response to the terrorist attacks.

For twenty years our mantra on 9/11 has been to “never forget”. Even though we don’t forget, I’m not sure we remember either. I was not interested in the facts that are familiar to us, rather in how this day had been lived. We didn’t know when the attacks started, we didn’t know when they would end, we didn’t even know how many attacks there had been and, worse yet, what was to follow.

Over the past twenty years, much has been written, said, and filmed about the terrorist attacks launched in the United States by the terrorist organization Al-Qaida on September 11, 2001, their origin, their course, their military and geopolitical repercussions. on America and the rest of the world. However, until today, no one had ever gathered, in a large way, the memories of the actors, direct or indirect witnesses, to tell the 360 ​​degree story of what happened that day in New York, Washington, Pennsylvania, Sarasota (Florida) or on board Air Force One, the presidential plane, the only one authorized to fly the skies of the United States after the order had been given to do urgently land all other planes.

A journalist specializing in the fields of counterterrorism, cybersecurity and intelligence, Garrett M.

They read or listened to about 2000 of these stories to finally remember nearly 400, to which are added 80 interviews conducted by Garrett M. Graff. These testimonies are supplemented by the transcription of recordings: voice messages, telephone calls to emergency services, audio recordings, etc.

The whole makes up a fresco of impressive evocative power, which gives the reader the feeling of reliving, minute by minute, this tragic day during which nearly 3,000 people of 90 nationalities were killed and 6,000 others. injured. However, September 11th. Oral history Would not be such a valuable book if the art of editing and rhythm shown by Garrett M.

As such, this exceptional document is also a great book of immediate history, which recounts the upheavals of the world where they occur: at the most intimate of human experience.

TV STORY – WEDNESDAY 1IS SEPTEMBER AT 8:50 PM – DOCUMENTARY

A documentary of more than three hours devoted to a dictator with a charisma close to nothing? Don’t run away. Contrary to appearances, this program divided into four parts broadcast in succession and devoted to Francisco Franco (1892-1975) is worth the detour. For the wealth of filmed archives and explicit animated drawings. For the quality of the speakers, historians (British, Spanish, German) or anti-Franco activists who experienced torture, exile, even the Nazi concentration camp of Mauthausen in Austria. How could a shy little man with an uncertain voice take power but especially keep it for four decades? By unwinding the thread of events, the Franco mystery becomes a little clearer.

At only 22 years old, Franco was the youngest captain of the Spanish army

At the age of 20, this son of an officer brought up in a garrison town, an average student trained at the Military Academy of Toledo, left to join the army in Morocco. His brutality on the front is quickly underlined. A brutality that will not be denied on the ground, whether in 1933 during the uprising of the miners in Asturias then during the atrocious civil war which tears Spain apart and which he wins with his phalangists.

At only 22 years old, Franco was the youngest captain in the Spanish army. Ten years later, he would become its youngest general. The man does not drink, is not interested in sex like his fellow officers. “One day one of his soldiers made fun of him as he gave an order in his sour voice.” Franco shot him right away! », recalls the historian Antony Beevor. Seriously injured in 1915, he was repatriated and then appointed head of the Legion in Oviedo. There he meets Carmen Polo (1900-1988), very pious and coming from a wealthy background, whom he will marry in 1923. A formidable woman who, throughout the interminable reign of her “Paco”, will have an influence decisive on Caudillo’s policy.

Cautious and opportunistic

What is striking is the skillful, sometimes lucky, manner in which Franco got rid of all his potential rivals. Cautious, wait-and-see, opportunist, he knows how to play with men, flatter them or punish them. His admiration for Hitler could have been fatal to him after the war, but if Stalin wants his skin, the Anglo-Saxon allies prefer to do business with the one who now constitutes in their eyes a bulwark against the new communist danger.

In fact, the cold war benefits Franco. Which triumphed in March 1959, when President Eisenhower himself paid an official visit to Madrid. In the 1960s, Spain modernized and an educated youth, who had not known civil war, campaigned to finally live in democracy. But Franco’s repression remained, until the dictator’s death in 1975, a terrifying reality for millions of Spaniards.

Franco, the forgotten dictator, documentary by Dagmar Rosenbauer and Andrea Mokosch (Germany, 2017, 4 × 52 min). Available on the Histoire TV website.
