Ardeshir Mohasses & His Caricatures is a short film written, produced and directed by Bahman Maghsoudlou in 1972. It was the first film ever made about Ardeshir Mohasses, the acclaimed caricaturist from Iran, and remained the only film about him until 2012 when Maghsoudlou made a sequel/update entitled Ardeshir Mohasses: The Rebellious Artist. Maghsoudlou shot the film by visiting his friend with a camera and merely filming the artist's activities for a few hours one afternoon. The film was made as an episode of an arts-themed program Maghsoudlou was producing for Iranian television, which is also where it had its debut soon after filming.

Twenty-four years later in 1996, it was selected to be shown at the Dok Leipzig. It was also shown as part of a retrospective on Mohasses at the Asia Society in New York City in June 2008 entitled 'Ardeshir Mohasses: Art and Satire in Iran,' an event that featured appearances by, among others, Iranian artist Shirin Neshat and former Attorney General Ramsey Clark, both friends of Mohasses's. It was the enthusiastic reception of this retrospective and the artist's passing soon afterward that spurred Maghsoudlou to create the updated film.

Dans un kimono rouge, ses bras fermement liés, elle regarde l'objectif avec une expression vide. Derrière l'appareil un curieux petit bonhomme est entrain de marmonner et de prendre des photos avec cinq appareils différents, trempé et excité comme le diable. Il s'agit de Nobuyoshi Araki, le plus controversé et le plus célébré des artistes japonais du monde. Ce documentaire exceptionnel vous fera rentrer dans sa légende...

Le film revient sur la carrière d'Hergé, mais surtout sur l'homme qu'il était, en mettant en image de nombreux extraits des bandes son originales des entretiens avec Numa Sadoul. La mise en scène, volontairement sobre, est accompagné de diverses images d'archives et d'entretiens avec des spécialistes et amis d'Hergé. Les divers entretiens avec des critiques suivent tous la même scénographie : ils se déplace dans une salle entièrement pavée de planches, s'arrêtent, les commentent, jusqu'à ce que la caméra aille se placer au-dessus d'eux, révélant les preneurs de sons, chef opérateurs, etc.
Harry Clarke – Darkness in Light, 52minutes
Genres Documentary
Themes Documentary films about the visual arts, Documentaire sur une personnalité

Filmmaker John J Doherty traces the life and work of the Irish artist, book illustrator and stained glass artist Harry Clarke (1889–1931) with major contributions from his biographer Nicola Gordon Bowe as well as many stained glass artists, poets and historians. The film takes the artist's work in stained glass, which was mainly religious & ethereal, and in book illustration, which was mainly dark & fantastical, as the basis for its title and tells a story of talent, struggle, success and the censorship of his final masterpiece 'the Geneva Window'. Harry Clarke brought his expertise in working in fine decorative detail in glass to his book illustrations, most notably in the tales of Hans Christian Andersen and Edgar Allan Poe where he is compared to Aubrey Beardsley and which are featured in the film and paralleled with German Expressionist cinema of the time. The film was made in conjunction with the Irish Film Board and national broadcaster TG4.

Lars von Trier prétend que le court-métrage Det perfekte menneske de Jørgen Leth sorti en 1967 est son film préféré. Dans le but de lui rendre hommage, mais d'une manière perverse, à la fois manipulatrice et créatrice, il propose à l'auteur du film original, son compatriote Jørgen Leth, de détruire et de reconstruire autrement ce court-métrage. Il défie Leth d'en tourner cinq remakes. Pour chaque projet, il lui impose de nouvelles « obstructions », consignes, restrictions, interdictions plus ou moins arbitraires, l'obligeant à repenser l'histoire, l'esthétique et les personnages de son film. Il s'ensuit à chaque épreuve un feed back entre les deux hommes où Lars von Trier, dans une sorte de position de « directeur de conscience », à la limite de l'humiliation, semble prendre à cœur de déconstruire et détruire ce que Jørgen Leth a réalisé.
