Filming in progress in China for The Premiere

Directed by Luyao Zhang.
Ying comes from a fishing village on a small island in southern China. He was never a good student at school. Most of the people in his “gang” in the village grew up as labourers or fishermen. It’s a place where no one cares what modern dance is. However, for Ying, from the day he learned to dance, it became his only goal: to become a contemporary dancer. Dance then becomes a means of social emancipation for Ying, leaving the old way of life of his family to live his dream in Beijing, and prepare his big return to the village to organize one day his big “Premiere”.

A co-production by Pango Pictures (China) & Backstory Media (France).

International Scientific Symposium on Polar Warming

We are present at the International Scientific Symposium on Polar Warming, organized by the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco, as part of our impact documentary «Antarctica, the cold hard truth», directed by Pascal Guérin!

This Polar Symposium will bring together internationally renowned experts and scientists to address issues related to how and how quickly changes in the polar regions of our planet affect the climate, living and social systems, and how it concerns all of us.

The event aims to inform on management, policies and collective action in the clusters and to feed processes at international and regional levels. It will serve as a historical dialogue reaffirming the role of science in decision-making and revisiting the critical role of the cryosphere in the context of climate change.

The symposium is co-organized by the Prince Albert II Foundation of Monaco, Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), in collaboration with the Oceanographic Institute of Monaco, Prince Albert I Foundation, the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI) and the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
