"Sense of escape"     -      "makes history feel transgenerational"
Thanks Variety for this great article pointing up our must-see programs ! Read the full article below and discover the highlights of our line-up!
 

The natural world, wildlife, the legacy of war and the beauty of culture has proven to be in big demand for Paris-based documentary distributor Terranoa.

Attending this year’s Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Biarritz, the company presented a diverse lineup that ranged from history and ancient civilizations to science, wildlife, arts, culture and current affairs.

Among its popular new titles is “Top of the Rocks,” produced by Haut et Court Doc with Franco-German pubcaster Arte and French channel Ushuaïa. The ambitious 4K, five-part series takes viewers around the world to examine how stones – specifically granite, limestone, sandstone, basalt and clay – have not only shaped the planet but also inspired human civilizations.

The series has “that sense of escape, travel and discovery,” says Isabelle Graziadey, Terranoa’s executive director of international co-productions, sales and acquisitions. “I can see it filling the appetite for travel slots.”. The show pre-sold to a number of territories, including to doc channel Odisea in Spain and ServusTV in Austria.

Likewise generating intense interest is the three-part wildlife series “Animal Construction,” a co-production by Docland Yard and Biglo Production for Arte that looks at the ways a wide range of living creatures, from birds, mammals and reptiles to insects, arachnids and even fish, build their own homes to shelter and protect their young. It sold to ORF in Austria, Switzerland’s RSI, RTP in Portugal and KBS in South Korea as well as to buyers in China, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.  

The distrib has also seen success with “After the Chaos,” produced by Docland Yard for Planète Plus, which sold to N-TV in Germany and Spain’s RTVE. The four-part series tells the story of how the cities of Le Havre, London, Berlin and Warsaw were destroyed by bombing during the Second World War and then rebuilt and reinvented after the war using archival footage, state-of-the-art visual effects and first-hand witnesses who contributed to the cities’ rebirths.

Also dealing with the legacy of war is “Children of Chaos, What Became of WW2 Orphans,” a 90-minute film produced by Elephant Doc for France 2 in co-production with Belgium and Poland that pre-sold to Switzerland’s RTS and ORF in Austria. The film uses colorized archives, survivor testimonies and reenactments as it explores an obscure and unknown episode of the immediate post-war period. In 1945, 15 million orphans roamed the ruins and rubble of destroyed Europe. The documentary tells the stories of these children, their broken lives, forever in search of their families and homes.

The film “makes history feel transgenerational,” says Graziadey. “It has a purpose.”

Terranoa likewise secured a number of sales for “Natural Disasters: Mega Regulators,” which reveals how scientists are discovering the interconnections of natural disasters – tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, forest fires – and how one is triggered by the other. Researchers show the links between a cyclone and an earthquake or a volcanic eruption and a sea current as they uncover the secrets of a suffering natural world that benefits from such upheavals and recreates itself as it gets destroyed. Cocottes Minute and Eklektik Productions produced the film for France Télévisions, RTBF and Ushuaïa TV.

Another title attracting attention is “Bolsonaro, The Far Side of Brazil,” produced by Babel Doc for France 2. It quickly pre-sold to N-TV in Germany, Swiss pubcaster RTS, Belgian broadcasters VRT and RTBF, Sweden’s SVT, RTV in Slovenia, Swiss channel RSI and RDI in Canada. The film examines Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro’s political career, his reputation as the brash “Trump of the tropics” and disruptive right-wing populist, while also showing him to be more complex than he is usually portrayed in this pivotal election year for Brazil.

Offering a cultural experience through travel and arts is “United Nations of Dance,” a series that takes viewers on a journey into the traditional dances of the world over two five-part seasons. The show presents the history and traditions behind each dance – from Mozambique, Bali and Brazil to Japan, India and Hawaii – through the personal stories of the dancers and the people who perpetuate their cultures over the centuries. Produced by New York-based Producing Partners for Arte, the series sold in the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland and other territories.

SPECIAL PRIZE - MAKING PANDEMICS (Deauville Green Awards)

 


 
 
 
MAKING PANDEMICS - SPECIAL PRIZE
(110', 2x52')
 
Over the last forty years, humanity has been confronted with at least one new infectious disease per year. 70% of these emerging diseases are zoonoses, diseases transmitted from animals to humans. French Actress Juliette Binoche seeks to understand the causes of this "epidemic of pandemics". She travels and meets with scientists from all over the world on the field, to understand the links between human health and the health of ecosystems. An eye opening film at the heart of a global health issue.
 
Our editorial insight : Juliette Binoche’s involvement as the candid eye in search of what pandemics are about and why pandemics matter, creates a genuine link between the scientists and the audience as we travel across five continents. While questioning the basic principles behind these threats to our global health, the film provides a sound overview of what lies for us in the future and how we are to live with Pandemics. A perfect mix of accessible and relatable science in this visually compelling film. Meet with the scientists on the field in the identified risk zones as they share their overall vision of the action needed at the local, national, and international level.
“It’s not the animals that are responsible, but us” Thomas Gillespie (Emory University) Primatologist and Health Ecologist

Fast forward a quarter century later, the film reveals the new map of nuclear armaments expanding today in this multipolar world with growing concern about the risk of a nuclear conflict.

2022 begins with presales!

 

BOLSONARO, THE FAR SIDE OF BRAZIL 

The film (70' & 52') produced by Babel Doc for France 2 (Le Monde en face) has gathered in a few months 7 exclusive pre-buyers: N-TV (RTL Germany), RTS, VRT, RTBF, SVT, RSI & RDI Canada, RTV Slovenia


He is known as the "Trump of the tropics, " the "Cavalo, " the uncontrollable horseman, the disruptive populist, or even "The Myth. " Known for his anti-communist rhetoric, his provocative words on Amazonia, the dictatorship, women, homosexuality, firearms, and now for his seemingly unreadable governance. Yet, he is a political figure far more complex than the grotesque portrait painted of him. Supported by the country's various conservative forces he is already gearing up for the 2022 elections. And he has no doubts about its outcome : " I will leave the presidential palace in 2027! " .

Children of chaos, what became of WWII orphans

(2x45', 52' & 90') Produced by Elephant Doc for the France 2 prime time slot in co-production with Belgium and Poland, the film has been pre-purchased by RTS and ORF.

 

In 1945, fifteen million orphans roamed in the debris of a Europe recovering from the deadliest conflict it had ever known. Through recolorized archives, testimonies of survivors and reenactment, our film will relate this obscure and unknown episode of the immediate post-war period, overshadowed by the atrocities of the conflict. We will understand how over seven years, the victorious nations took control of the orphans, regardless of their origins, their affiliations and their nationality, all in the name of the state.

Teaming up with the best historian from France, Poland and the US on the topic, we will tell the stories of these children broken lives, forever in search of their families and homes.

 

Director : Agnès Pizzini & Julien Johan

Broadcaster : France 2

NATURAL DISASTERS, MEGA REGULATORS

NHK joins SVT in pre-purchasing the film (52' & 90') produced by Cocottes Minute.


Tsunamis. Volcanic eruptions. Forest fires... Humanity has always feared natural disasters, but a change of paradigm is emerging: on a global scale, disasters never come alone! Scientists are discovering their interconnections, how one is triggered by another. Researchers are able to make out links between a cyclone and an earthquake, a volcanic eruption and a sea current. We’re uncovering the secrets of a suffering natural world which benefits from such upheavals and recreates itself as it gets destroyed. A new take on these extreme phenomena which act as the great climate regulators.

ISRAEL & PALESTINE: TIME TO CALL TIME?

ISRAEL & PALESTINE: TIME TO CALL TIME?

As the Israel Palestine conflict is being reignited, our newly released film THE TINDERBOX is a must watch to explore the historical roots and colonial heritage at the heart of the tensions in the region.

THE TINDERBOX

A rare and thought-provoking examination of both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, from its catalyst to why it still rages, to what needs to happen for it to stop.
The Tinderbox combines ancient and more recent history, geopolitical problems (racism, inequality, immigration and fake truths), and psychology, with the deeply personal journey of one person forced to challenge everything they’d been taught about the conflict in Israel and Palestine.
The film also shows the human face of this conflict by hearing from a wide variety of contemporary voices, ranging from a Settler to a political member of Hamas. Today, while this conflict still rages, an American Middle East Peace Plan is in the works, and anti-Semitism and Islamophobia remain as globally controversial as ever, this film will provide context, show how history continues to play out in the daily lives of people on either side of the divide, and will empower audiences to make up their own minds.
