Raise Your Arms and Twist, Documentary of NMB48 | Grand Angle

The girls band of Raise Your Arms and Twist, Documentary of NMB48 is a real social phenomenon in Japan. Racking up number ones in the charts, filling stadiums, its interchangeable members are under constant pressure and subject to individual curves in popularity. A pop film of heady melodies and colourful choreographies that unveils the dreams and dramas of teenage life.

Dark on Dark | Regard Neuf

Boureima, from Niger, met Thivolle at the university in Toulouse, a city where he now "rules" among vagrants, whereas his father was the king of a village and principal "hero" of a documentary film. Dark on Dark narrates the reunion of two friends, with the film serving as the shared space and rite of passage in the mutual recognition of their solitude.
