TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard directed by Simon Klose (eng, fr. & esp.)




TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard is a documentary film released on 8 February 2013, directed by Simon Klose, based on the lives of the three founders of The Pirate Bay - Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm. Filming began in summer 2008, and concluded on 25 February 2012.

An intellectual freedoms documentary based around the interpersonal triumphs, and defeats of the three main characters against the largest industry in the known universe. The media industry.
---
Le procès de trois geeks suédois, fondateurs d'une des plus grandes plates-formes de peer-to-peer du monde.

Fondé en 2004, The Pirate Bay entendait permettre à ses millions d'utilisateurs, aux quatre coins du globe, d'échanger des fichiers audio et vidéo hors de tous les circuits commerciaux traditionnels - à la grande fureur de l'industrie cinématographique et musicale. Au terme d'un procès très médiatisé, un tribunal suédois a prononcé des peines de prison ferme et ordonné le versement de millions de dollars de dommages et intérêts à l'encontre de trois de ses principaux membres. Dans ce documentaire, chronique de cette longue procédure judiciaire, les trois jeunes geeks, Gottfrid Svartholm Ward, Fredrik Neif et Peter Sunde - leur souriant porte-parole et le plus politisé du groupe -, apparaissent comme trois garçons aux profils et aux motivations bien différents. De ce portrait de hacker en jeune homme, "les fondateurs de The Pirate Bay ne ressortent pas forcément grandis, mais plus humains", écrit Damien Leloup dans Le Monde. Le documentaire ne fait en effet l'impasse ni sur leurs traits de caractère les moins sympathiques - humour douteux, propos racistes - ni sur les zones d'ombre de l'aventure - liens avec l'extrême-droite, interrogations de la cour autour des recettes publicitaires. Surtout, de la visite des serveurs aux liens tissés entre The Pirate Bay, le tout jeune Parti des Pirates suédois et WikiLeaks, il propose une immersion passionnante dans l'univers du "crime désorganisé". Présenté en février à la Berlinale (en ouverture de la section Panorama documentaires), ce film de Simon Klose vient nourrir le débat sur les droits d'auteur dans une société de plus en plus interconnectée.

Flamencos entre deux Suds réalisé par Christian Fienga & Jacques Maigne



Tout au long de l'année, ils vivent et travaillent, pensent, rêvent,respirent flamenco, en Andalousie, à Jerez, Utrera ou en France à Nîmes ou Port-de-Bouc.

Ici en Sud de France ou là-bas, en Andalousie, ils se moquent des frontières, des drapeaux, des chapelles. D'un sud à l'autre, le flamenco est leur langue commune, un secret partagé.

Depuis plus de 20 ans, le festival de flamenco de Nîmes est la plus belle vitrine du flamenco en France, l'un des festivals les plus réputés hors d'Espagne. Nîmes, appartient désormais à la géographie de l'art profond des Andalous.

Au-delà du Festival, le flamenco est présent dans la ville tout au long de l'année à travers des cours collectifs, des écoles de chant, de danse et de guitare.

Sous l'impulsion d'immigrés venus d'Espagne et de leurs enfants, ou de gitans d'origine andalouse sédentarisés, le flamenco s'est peu à peu épanoui,enraciné à Nîmes et dans le sud proche, des Bouches-du-Rhône et de la Camargue. Allant jusqu'à favoriser l'émergence d'artistes désormais reconnus par le monde du flamenco.

Que se passe-t-il aujourd'hui entre deltas du Rhône et du Guadalquivir, entre Camargue et Andalousie?

C'est cette histoire du Flamenco entre deux Suds, entre deux deltas, qui est racontée.

ARTE: Belles de nuit réalisé par Dietmar Nill, Brian McClatchy & Karlheinz Baumann



Un film essentiel pour tout savoir sur la vie très secrète des chauves-souris.

Fruit d'une année de patientes observations, le film lève le voile sur les secrets des chauves-souris, de la parade nuptiale à la chasse nocturne en passant par la naissance des petits et leurs premiers essais de vol.

Le photographe Dietmar Nill a suivi en Sardaigne ces mammifères nyctalopes, les seuls à avoir colonisé l'espace aérien. Il nous offre des images rares et surprenantes, propres à corriger les peurs archaïques que les chauves-souris inspirent depuis toujours.

Jeans, une planète en bleu réalisé par Thierry Aguila



En 2000, dans une mine d’argent abandonnée, est découvert un jeans Levi’s datant des années 1880. Mis aux enchères sur Ebay, ce jeans, vendu à l’origine 0,99 $, atteint 46 532 $! Cette histoire incroyable est un précipité de ce que représente le jeans: objet de masse tissé de légende, témoin de la naissance du monde industriel, héros du Far West, vêtement planétaire, unisexe et trans-générationnel, icône de la modernité depuis 150 ans. Traversant le marketing balbutiant, l’Internet, l’univers des collectionneurs, les bouleversements politiques jusqu’à la mondialisation, le jeans, dont la longévité et la popularité défient le temps, se pose en véritable mystère… Pourquoi lui?

Le doc sauvage: Le chimpanzé est un homme comme les autres réalisé par Eleanor Grant



Depuis une dizaine d'années, l'anthropologue Jill Pruetz étudie les chimpanzés de Fongoli, au sud-ouest du Sénégal. Ses travaux ont permis de révéler qu' ils ont des comportements sociaux s'apparentant à l'altruisme, la générosité et même la transmission de savoirs. Par exemple, une guenon à qui l'homme avait enlevé son petit, sollicite l'aide d'un mâle pour le reprendre. Ces singes maîtrisent aussi parfaitement l'outil, qu'ils confectionnent et utilisent dans le but de trouver de la nourriture. Instrument et enseignement semblent ne plus être l'apanage exclusif de l'homme...

Chasseurs de Trésors: Indes impériales réalisé par Grahan Townsley



L'Inde est un pays aux richesses fabuleuses, patrie du diamant Kohinor. Ce joyau remarquable aurait été offert, dit la légende, par le Dieu Krishna pour faire une expérience. Devant tant de richesse et de beauté, les hommes se transforment-ils en bête sauvage ou trouvent-ils la sagesse ? A plusieurs siècles de distance, deux grands conquérants ont convoité l'Inde. L'un, venu du nord, à travers les montagnes, a fondé l'Empire Moghol. L'autre a traversé les mers en provenance de Grande-Bretagne. Tous deux ne rêvaient que de richesses et de pouvoir.

Channel 4: The IT Crowd - "Men Without Women" directed by Graham Linehan (eng. st rom.)



(WIKI) The IT Crowd is a British sitcom by Channel 4, written by Graham Linehan, produced by Ash Atalla and starring Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry. The "IT" in the show's title can be pronounced as either the word it /ˈɪt/, as in "the 'it' crowd", or as the letters IT /ˌaɪˈtiː/, as in the abbreviation for information technology.

Set in the London offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department: a geeky genius named Maurice Moss (Ayoade), the workshy Roy Trenneman (O'Dowd), and Jen Barber (Parkinson), the department head/Relationship Manager, who knows nothing about IT. The show also focuses on the bosses of Reynholm Industries: Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris) and his son Douglas (Berry).

The comedy premiered on Channel 4 on 3 February 2006, and ran for four series of 6 episodes each. Although a fifth series was commissioned, Graham Linehan announced in 2011 that there would not be a fifth series.

The show was the third successful sitcom creation of Graham Linehan, following Father Ted (co-written with Arthur Mathews) and Black Books (co-written with Dylan Moran).

Douglas travels far and wide in his quest to bed Jen and is given a love potion by a mysterious, blind, Irish sorcerer. On his return to Reynholm Industries, and following a lengthy campaign of pointless phone calls to the basement, Douglas offers Jen a position as his personal assistant. Having realised she's wasting her life in the position she's in, she accepts, but this leaves Moss and Roy free to wreak havoc in the basement as they engage in a day of not wearing trousers and playing a form of golf where Roy tries to pot a ball in Moss's mouth. However, this soon wears thin, and as Douglas continues his efforts to bed Jen, he resorts to the sorcerer's potion, which turns out to be Rohypnol. Roy and Moss eventually rescue Jen from Douglas's sexual advances, but soon find themselves threatened by him; she locks them both in with him when she finds out they replaced her with an answering machine and pandemonium ensues.

Roy comes back from a stag night wearing lipstick; he passed out and the other men decided to put makeup on him as a prank. Jen loses concentration during an important meeting after wearing a "bad bra" to work; as a result, Moss gets over his usual sensitivity to ladies' undergarments and with the help of his mother's underwear drawer, designs the ultimate bra. Naming it the "Abracadabra" and fearing retribution from established bra companies, Moss adopts a pseudonym he has trouble remembering. As the design goes forward, both Jen and Roy help prepare him to pitch his invention on well-known TV series Dragons' Den, in exchange for a return of the eventual profits. However, things start to go down the drain on arrival at the television studio – while waiting to do a TV interview, Moss confuses his pseudonym with the name of a spokesman for the Ministry of Defence, and ends up on a television news interview discussing the Iraq war (a parody of the Guy Kewney / Guy Goma mixup). Things go from bad to worse for both Jen and Moss when he fails to rid the bra of its Achilles heel: randomly catching fire.

Jen has finally found love with her new boyfriend, and to celebrate their happiness, they host a dinner party for six of their single friends. Their joy turns to disappointment when all of the men are unable to come, so Jen reluctantly invites Roy, Moss and Richmond to take their places. On arrival at the house, Jen drills the three of them on how to act normally, and for a while, things seem to go well. Roy chooses to sit with a model, but discovers that she was recently in a car accident and her face is wrapped in bandages, so he is uncertain whether or not she is still as beautiful as she used to be; Moss pairs up with another of the three single friends, and the two of them inadvertently start acting as if they are married; Richmond unexpectedly hits it off with the last of Jen's friends. During the dinner party, Roy and Moss discover that Jen's boyfriend's name is Peter File, which sounds similar to the word 'paedophile', which causes much amusement. At the end of the episode, Jen and her new boyfriend set off for a romantic holiday to Paris, but she abandons him at the airport as his name is too embarrassing.

Worried that his life is stagnating, Moss enrolls in a German cookery course. However, it turns out that the advert contained important translation errors, and the German is actually a cannibal who is seeking someone willing to be eaten (a parody of the Armin Meiwes incident). Meanwhile, despite some exaggerated attempts to stop him, Roy is trying to watch a pirated DVD from South Korea; after his failed attempts, he deceptively volunteers to be the German cannibal's next meal so that he can watch the film on the German's impressive home entertainment system. However, when the police raid the house, it seems that the German's plan is not what the police are interested in. Elsewhere, Jen, who recently started smoking again, finds the only place in the building where she can now enjoy a cigarette, which is not unlike Soviet Russia (a parody of bleak and melodramatic Dr. Zhivago-style films). The Korean movie with the title '새벽의 황당한 저주' is in fact Shaun of the Dead.

Moss discovers an internet site that calculates when people will die by analysing their personal details. Despite Roy's refusal to partake, Moss discovers that Roy will die on Thursday at 3pm. Denholm, threatened by police who want to investigate "financial irregularities" in the business's accounts, commits suicide by jumping out of a window during a meeting, and his funeral is also set for Thursday at 3pm. Roy buys a new mobile phone with lots of features but, finding himself disappointed by the weak vibrate setting, he allows Moss to "pimp your phone, girlfriend". Having set the vibrate function to the highest setting, the phone mistakenly goes off during Denholm's funeral, and to make matters worse, Roy mistakes it for his impending death and reacts accordingly, screaming and swearing. Before the funeral, Denholm's successor announces his plan to fire the entire IT department because he despises them, but he finds himself fired when Denholm's son Douglas (Matt Berry) – his rightful successor – storms the funeral and takes over Reynholm Industries. Roy and Moss give Douglas the now unwanted mobile phone, and having felt the vibrate function go off in his trousers, he declares it takes him "nearly at the station", giving a hint of things to come.

Jen is asked on a date by "Phillip from Six" to watch a play, and when Roy and Moss doubt the heterosexuality of her date, they invite themselves along in the hope of hilarity ensuing. Roy and Moss's suspicions are further reinforced when the play turns out to be a production of "Gay! – A Gay Musical", during which the two are mistaken for a couple during the audience participation segment. During the intermission, Moss and Roy are unable to urinate in the gents' due to the presence of a toilet attendant, so they use the staff and disabled facilities respectively. However, after mistaking the emergency cord for the toilet flush, Roy pretends to be disabled, resulting in him being taken to Manchester as part of a group of gay disabled men, while Moss pretends to be a staff member, which results in him becoming a bartender. Jen confronts her date about his sexuality and when she mentions his interest in her Heat magazine, he comes clean, saying he hoped his relationship with Jen would work because she looks like a man.

Jen's period (nicknamed "Aunt Irma" and explained to Moss as "the first scene from Carrie") has unexpected consequences as her colleagues begin to suffer sympathy pains. Moss sends an e-mail out to everyone he knows, and as a result many IT staff learn of the problems Roy and Moss are suffering, turning them into Internet celebrities and inciting "Aunt Irma" riots throughout the world. Back at Reynholm, with "Project Icarus" complete, all the teams are assembled before Denholm. Thanks are dished out to everyone except the IT department, and Roy and Moss insist that this "always happens". Moss has been having sessions with the attractive company psychiatrist (whom Roy insists looks exactly like his mother), but she informs him that he no longer needs her help. Later, she goes to the IT department to tell Moss she stopped seeing him as a patient so she could explore her feelings for him. The gang initially decides not to go to the celebration party at work, but with their night in with scented candles and the movie Steel Magnolias not helping, they decide the only solution is a big "girls' night out". They attend the party, Moss meets up with the psychiatrist, and they all get incredibly drunk. The next morning, Moss emerges from Jen's bathroom, Roy wakes up to the psychiatrist offering him a cup of tea, and Denholm wakes up with Richmond. The episode ends with "To Be Continued", but these events are never mentioned again.

After a terrible dinner date, Jen finds herself continually trying to avoid Bill "The News" Crouse. She asks self-confessed "terrible liar" Moss to cover for her, and he tells Bill that Jen has died. Moss believes that the problem is solved, but the story quickly gains momentum, and Bill continues to tell anyone who will listen that he was the last person to sleep with Jen. Meanwhile Jen, who is blissfully unaware of Moss's lie, continues to go about her daily business, but it appears that her spirit is haunting all of Reynholm Industries, especially Bill. Roy is trying to attract the attention of Julie, the attractive girl from the fifth floor (a place Roy refers to as "The Land of the Beautiful People"), but his effort only succeeds in drawing the admiring glances of someone at the opposite end of the scale – Judy, the office cleaner. Elsewhere, Small Paul dies, and the office holds a memorial service for Jen, to which Denholm invites his good friend, Elton John. However, Jen crashes the ceremony, mistaking it for her "Employee of the Month" award presentation. The episode ends with everyone attending Small Paul's memorial service and Elton John playing the piano.

Moss finds himself frustrated at repeated theft of his mug. To prevent further recurrence, he gets a new mug that no one could possibly steal, as it has a picture of his head on the bottom – but the inevitable happens. After heading upstairs to resolve an IT problem, Roy finds himself in an uncomfortable situation under a female employee's desk. After Roy calls Moss for help to escape, Jen investigates a strange red door in the department. Despite repeated instruction to not open the door, Jen's curiosity gets the better of her, and she discovers Richmond (Noel Fielding), a lonely goth and the fourth employee of the IT department. A series of flashbacks paint a bleak picture of Richmond's fall from grace at Reynholm Industries – Richmond was Denholm's right-hand man until the death of Denholm's father and (coincidentally) Richmond's discovery of the dark-wave band Cradle of Filth. Touched by his story, Jen sets out to help and restore Richmond to his former glory. Meanwhile, Roy continues to be trapped under a desk, leaving him fighting a losing battle to not become a "desk rabbit" (a term coined by Moss), but Jen rescues him by successfully distracting the two women from their desks.

(WIKI) The IT Crowd is a British sitcom by Channel 4, written by Graham Linehan, produced by Ash Atalla and starring Chris O'Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson and Matt Berry. The "IT" in the show's title can be pronounced as either the word it /ˈɪt/, as in "the 'it' crowd", or as the letters IT /ˌaɪˈtiː/, as in the abbreviation for information technology.

Set in the London offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, the show revolves around the three staff members of its IT department: a geeky genius named Maurice Moss (Ayoade), the workshy Roy Trenneman (O'Dowd), and Jen Barber (Parkinson), the department head/Relationship Manager, who knows nothing about IT. The show also focuses on the bosses of Reynholm Industries: Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris) and his son Douglas (Berry).

The comedy premiered on Channel 4 on 3 February 2006, and ran for four series of 6 episodes each. Although a fifth series was commissioned, Graham Linehan announced in 2011 that there would not be a fifth series.

The show was the third successful sitcom creation of Graham Linehan, following Father Ted (co-written with Arthur Mathews) and Black Books (co-written with Dylan Moran).

Roy's date with a woman goes horribly wrong after she mistakes some chocolate on his head for faeces. Despite Roy's insistence that "it's not shit", he declares that the woman didn't like him because women only like "bad boys" and devises a plan to prove his theory by posting a despicable singles ad. After getting many responses, Roy arranges a date with a surprisingly good-looking woman and sets out to act like a "bastard" to progress their relationship. Jen has been impressing the temporary security guard with her fluke-knowledge of obscure facts and after he tells her he will call at a certain time, it is revealed that he has selected her as his "phone a friend" on the quiz show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. After being asked out on national television, Jen is presented with the real "big question", and things inevitably go awry. Moss suggests that Roy and Jen take their dates to a great restaurant called "Messijo's", but they fail to spot his mispronunciation and end up at "Messy Joe's", a popular family restaurant. After the ineptitude of both is exposed, Roy and Jen's dates leave together, and Roy ruins what could potentially have been a close moment between him and Jen.

Jen is obsessed with a pair of shoes in a shop window. Despite the fact they are several sizes too small, Jen later sneaks out to buy them. Denholm starts a war on stress, threatening to fire anyone who is still experiencing stress by the end of the day. As a result, the trio are persuaded to attend an anti-stress class which Roy continually disrupts. To avoid being fired, Moss builds a copy of the stress measurement machine from the class, and Roy steals the original. Moss sets the office on fire after leaving a soldering iron switched on, and e-mails the fire brigade for help since he can't remember their new number (0118 999 881 999 119 7253). Denholm comes down to test Jen on the stress machine, and despite being hysterical due to the fire and her injuries from the shoes, the threat of being fired is enough to save her.

Jen (Katherine Parkinson) is interviewed for a position at Reynholm Industries by Denholm (Christopher Morris). Fooled by her claim on her CV that she has "a lot of experience with computers", Denholm hires her, and while she believes she will be the new Ally McBeal, he banishes her to the basement with "standard nerds" Roy (Chris O'Dowd) and Moss (Richard Ayoade). Resistant to the idea of a new manager, and in the belief that Jen knows nothing about computers, Moss and Roy set out to expose her, but when Denholm threatens to fire the whole team over their lack of teamwork, they pretend to get on with her, without exposing her secret. When Denholm asks why they came to see him, Roy invents an excuse that they came to inform him that they had just installed voice-activation software on his computer, and the episode ends with Denholm repeatedly trying to get the computer to respond to his voice.
