Wild Bunch boards Prince documentary 'Pop Life'

Exclusive: French photographer, art director and Prince aficionado Mathieu Bitton co-directs.

Wild Bunch has boarded sales on upcoming documentary Prince: Pop Life, capturing the music, life and legacy of the late pop legend who passed away in April 2016.

French-American photographer, art director and film-maker Mathieu Bitton, is co-directing alongside writer, journalist and TV producer Frédéric Bénudis.

The documentary features exclusive archive footage, fresh interviews and animated segments created by film-maker Joann Sfar, whose past credits include The Rabbi’s Cat and Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life.

“It will be in the same vein as Amy,” said Wild Bunch co-chief Vincent Maraval, referring to Asif Kapadia’s Oscar-winning portrait of Amy Winehouse.

“It will be music driven with a lot of exclusive footage,” said Maraval. “Joann’s animated sections will be there to express Prince’s creativity and the parts of his life when he disappeared from the public eye.”

The portrait will be presented as a road trip

In tribute to Emmanuelle Riva by Anne-Katrin Titze

Emmanuelle Riva, César, Lumière, and BAFTA Best Actress winner and Oscar nominee for Michael Haneke's Best Foreign Language Film winner Amour died at the age of 89 on Friday, January 27, 2017 in Paris.

Riva's performance with Eiji Okada in Alain Renais' Hiroshima Mon Amour in 1959 cuts so sharply to the truth about love and war that even after many viewings it is difficult to fully grasp the film's historical significance, storytelling innovations and stylistic brilliance.

Annette Insdorf, Professor in the Graduate Film Program of Columbia’s School of the Arts, Mademoiselle C director Fabien Constant, and Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words director Stig Björkman sent their remembrances.

Spring Fashion Talks at the French Institute Alliance Française kicked off with Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, moderated by Creative Digital Director for Vogue, Sally Singer, and crossed paths with the Tribeca Film Festival as the Haute Couture on Film series continued.

Inside the Florence Gould Hall Theater on April 15, while Bao Nguyen's Live from New York! was opening Tribeca at the Beacon Theatre, McCollough and Hernandez were referencing Harmony Korine, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Cate Blanchett, Gerhard Richter, Pearl Jam, Cindy Sherman, Kurt Cobain and, at one point, Sydney Pollack's Out Of Africa, complete with mid-century craftsmanship and mother nature as shaping Proenza Schouler creations. The designers appeared in Fabien Constant's exquisite documentary Mademoiselle C on Carine Roitfeld. Inspiration for them comes mostly from "posture, movement, attitude and spirit.

Documentary filmmakers Morgan Neville (2014 Oscar winner for 20 Feet From Stardom), Fabien Constant (Mademoiselle C), Varon Bonicos (A Man's Story) and Keyhole director Guy Maddin share their thoughts on the passing of the great documentarian Albert Maysles at the age of 88, Thursday, March 5, in New York City.

Author and journalist Gay Talese on an American Assignment for the New York Times in Selma, Alabama, sent a note, upon hearing the news, from the place where Gay had covered the civil rights march and "Bloody Sunday" 50 years ago.

The Empress "Mademoiselle C" Has No Clothes

You have to love the camera.

If you know who Carine Roitfeld is, then you'll probably love her vanity project, Mademoisell C (2013). The film documents her brief self-employed period--between editor-in-chief at Vogue Paris and Global Fashion Director for Harpers Bazaar--publishing her own fashion book Cr. Many documentaries are pieced together by some nameless technician, Mademoiselle C is directed (mostly) with taste and a particular vision by Fabien Constant (who has a number of other fashion-centric documentaries to his credit). To say "mostly" was generous. In terms of screen time, Mademoiselle C most often resembles yet another Bravo competition fashion show, i.e. pointless, ineloquent, and (whenever possible) name-dropping. But when Constant gets on with the well-accompanied montage, cinematographers Raphael Laski and Matt Elkind create something special, not out of place in a well-produced narrative film.

Documentaries: Officially Too Much of a Good Thing?

Glenn here. After decades of trying to attain the same critical and cultural awareness as feature films, it appears documentaries are now suffering from a case of too much of a good thing. We’re in a day and age where documentaries are so common that it’s impossible for the Academy’s documentary branch to keep up. Apparently 151 docos have been submitted - an average of three a week! - for this year’s Oscars and just like Diane Keaton, something’s gotta give.

Last year the Academy set up a secret online forum of sorts for documentary branchmembers so they could post recommendations of titles to help whittle down the number of contenders. “Nobody’s recommended that anthopological documentary about North Atlantic fishermen? Fine, I’ll just watch Blackfish.” I like the idea in concept, but Leviathan was highly acclaimed so what then? Admittedly, it would be nice

Beauty Police: Rita Ora's Hair Looks Like Minnie Mouse at a Wake (…But We Love Her Makeup)
Poor Rita Ora… She had been showing off her beautiful new long hair extensions throughout Paris Fashion Week and her frenemies must have had enough of her stealing the spotlight. So for one of the chicest events at Paris Fashion Week, the Mademoiselle C Cocktail Party, her "friends" must have talked her into wearing her new tresses in mouse ear knots. Not cool. Then to complete the cartoon look, someone fetched a black bow headband from a Minnie Mouse costume and attached a lace veil and sent her on her merry way. She must have been looking around the party at celebrities like Katy Perry and Miranda Kerr looking amazing, schmoozing with fashion royalty like Karl Lagerfeld and Giuseppe Zanotti, and...

Miranda Kerr
Miranda Kerr has basically taken Paris by storm this week! The model has been making the most of her overseas trip by mixing work and play in a big way. Between stomping the runway for A-list designers, Miranda has been attending high-profile events and even taking time for some retail therapy (but not without a couple of outfit changes). She was spotted today juggling bags while leaving the Balmain store and even snapped a few photos with designer Olivier Rousteing before heading out with her purchases and quipped, "Miranda goes Balmainiac." Miranda touched down in Paris over the weekend and quickly jumped into work, hitting the runway for Stella McCartney on Sunday and Chanel on Monday. She broke from work to support her pal Carine Roitfeld at the Paris screening of her documentary, Mademoiselle C, which also brought out Katy Perry and a cleavage-baring Kim Kardashian.

Metro Manila, Diana, The Call: this week's new films

Metro Manila | Diana | The Call | Ripd | Kelly + Victor | Hawking | Cold Comes The Night | A Belfast Story | Harrigan | InRealLife | 9.79* | Mademoiselle C | Phata Poster Nikla Hero

Metro Manila (15)

(Sean Ellis, 2013, UK/Phi) Jake Macapagal, Althea Vega, John Arcilla. 115 mins

Street-level social drama slyly develops into gripping crime thriller in this resourceful Anglo-Asian movie, a distinctive spin on the familiar theme of innocent country folk in the corrupting city. The squalor of modern-day Manila is vividly evoked, as our goodly, hard-up couple struggle to gain a foothold, but the opportunities they get only lead them into the moral shadows.

Diana (12A)

(Oliver Hirschbiegel, 2013, UK/Fra/Bel/Swe/Moz) Naomi Watts, Naveen Andrews. 113 mins

History repeats itself as farce in this unintentionally laughable rendition of Diana's final years and her "secret" affair. It's no deeper or better informed than your average celebrity mag.

The Call (15)

(Brad Anderson, 2013, Us) Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin, Michael Eklund.

Mademoiselle C. – review

Fashion maven Carine Roitfeld leaves Vogue Paris for pastures new in this documentary. But why should we care?

Fabien Constant's fashion documentary Mademoiselle C. is a lively but exasperatingly incurious and obsequious work about Carine Roitfeld, the former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief who quit the Condé Nast empire in 2011 to start her own publication called Cr Fashion Book. The question of why we should care about Mlle Roitfeld and her new career challenges is never asked or answered, and perhaps even to raise this thought is to break the fashion-butterfly on a wheel of scepticism. Her personal life is not investigated, though at 58 she looks stylish and young without obviously being a slave to those cosmetic procedures that have claimed so many others. But what are the real tensions involved in starting your own magazine? The film hints at competitive reprisals from Condé Nast, but the threat just seems to melt away,

Mademoiselle C Review

  • HeyUGuys
In 2009, R.J. Cutler’s compelling documentary feature The September Issue allowed us unprecedented access to the sleek – and self-consciously chic – world of American Vogue under the rule of its exacting and mercurial Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour. Carine Roitfeld, Mademoiselle C, was for many years Wintour’s French opposite – until she took the scandalous decision to abandon the hallowed halls of Vogue and strike out on her own with a brand new publication. In gloriously trashy Dynasty style, attempts were made to sabotage Cr before a single issue had been printed. Mademoiselle C chronicles the magazine’s journey from concept to realisation and Carine’s own, more personal, metamorphosis.

Carine Roitfeld’s enthusiasm for the industry is infectious. It bursts from the screen in a rainbow bright prism of girlish joy, expansive gestures and exclamation, to coax a smile from even the most cynical lips. We somehow expect our fashion mavens to

The mob is no match for a horror flick at the box office.
