Dancing City - Johannesburg (2012)

A film by Martin Meissonnier
“Dancing City” takes us around the world to explore street dance and music with Maïa Barouh, a sparky young Japanese-French singer and dancer with a great sense of humor and a winning smile.
Since the end of apartheid, there has been an explosion of creativity in South Africa, and Johannesburg is today the capital of “Deep House”. Naturally, the new mixed styles of music have given birth to dancing styles as inventive and hybrid as Pantsula, which integrates tribal movements with hip hop steps.
Maïa has an amazing ability to connect with all kinds of people and adapt to very different situations. Everywhere she meets people, they tell her about their dances that all have a meaning. They sublimate strongly the country’s history of social conflict and struggle, and its roots in various tribes.

The real Joan of Arc (2007)

A film by Martin Meissonnier
“It was no shepherd’s daughter who burned in Rouen, but a child of the race of kings.” (Shakespeare, Henry VI)
If nobody doubts the existence of Joan of Arc, recent historical evidence has shattered the legend.
The cult of Joan of Arc is an extraordinary myth. In the collective memory, she was a little shepherd-girl who died at the stake after saving France. She has been portrayed in turn as a popular revolutionary figure, the restorer of the monarchy and divine order, a victorious warlord in the Hundred Years’ War, and a partisan betrayed by the country’s religious elite. Her legend was fundamental to the rise of French nationalism in the 19th century.
Having been forgotten for over three centuries, Joan of Arc re-emerged after the French Revolution and dominated political and ideological debates about French national unity up until the wartime Vichy regime. Joan was said to have been born in Domrémy in the coal-rich Lorraine region that the Germans intended to annex. She heard the voice of God and became the virgin who freed France and who was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake by the English.
That is the legend but what is the true story of a girl who was virtually forgotten until the 1870s ? Investigative journalist Marcel Gay has devoted twenty years to this subject. He has hunted down documents in France, Germany, the UK and the Vatican to find evidence that will shock many people today.

On God's right (2004)

A film by Martin Meissonnier, in collaboration with Roger Trilling
Since September 11, 2001, the world has discovered that President George W. Bush belongs to the evangelical Christian movement. He has never hidden this from his fellow Christians, most of whom identify strongly with his words and deeds.
These Christians, whose numbers are impossible to evaluate accurately because the dividing lines between fundamentalists and moralists are so vague, are missionaries by tradition and all equal before God. They use modern communication techniques to bring the Good Book into people’s homes and hearts. Yet, in the last thirty years, Christian Evangelicals have drifted into more reactionary waters. Many become fundamentalists. Be they Baptists, Adventists, Pentecostalists, conservative and proud of it, low-key or fanatic, who are they and what do they want ? On the eve of the US presidential election, this film goes in search of these missionary electors from the world’s most powerful country.

The life of Buddha (2003)

A film by Martin Meissonnier
Over 2,500 years ago, Buddha Sakyamuni reached the Great Nirvana. Nowadays, half the planet is influenced by the philosophy of the first and the greatest of all revolutionaries. But who was the man who came to be known simply as Buddha ?
Siddharta, son of King Suddhodan, was born some time between 566 and 430 BC in the Himalayan foothills. His family belonged to the Sakya tribe. In the valley of Kathmandu in Nepal, a Buddhist tribe of the same name still survives today. For thousands of years, their story-tellers have told the legend of Siddharta…
By comparing their oral history, recent archeological evidence and historical sources, the documentary retraces Buddha Sakyamuni’s life and tries to get a better appreciation of a philosophy that has often been hijacked to other ends.
With the participation of Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, and Dr. Robin Coningham, a lecturer at the archeology department of the University of Bradford.
