Le Procès contre Mandela et les autres

by Gilles Porte and Nicolas Champeaux

2018 marks the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. He seized centre stage during a historic trial in 1963 and 1964. But there were eight others who, like him, faced the death sentence. They too were subjected to pitiless cross-examinations. To a man they stood rm and turned the tables on the state : South Africa’s Apartheid regime was in the dock. Recently recovered sound archives of those hearings transport us back into the thick of the courtroom battles.

a man is dead

by Olivier Cossu

Brest 1950. The city is undergoing reconstruction after the bombing of the war. During a demonstration demanding better wages, the situation with the police degenerates and the young worker Edouard Mazé is shot in the head. René Vautier, militant communist filmmaker, came to film the workers' situation with the collaboration, not always easy, of P’tit Zef and Désiré, Edward’s childhood friends. Once the film is finished, they improvise a traveling cinema and project the images on construction sites and pickets throughout Brittany. The film will breathe new life into the fight. Based on the comic strip by Kris and Etienne Davodeau.
