#COLCOA ‘21 Official Line Up: The Opera (L’Opéra) Eps 1 & 2

The Opera plunges us into the ultra-romantic universe of the Opéra de Paris, that mythic temple of classical dance ensconced in the glittering Palais Garnier. But this behind-the-scenes intrigue goes far beyond tutus and stardust, to reveal the dark underbelly of that monolithic icon, as we follow the paths of three of its protagonists — Zoé, an aging prima ballerina with a decadent lifestyle, who is suddenly threatened with expulsion; Flora, an aspiring young Black dancer eager to break into that venerable, often-impenetrable, universe; and Sébastien, the company’s ruthlessly ambitious new Dance Director, desperate to prove himself. With equal parts sumptuous homage and social commentary, The Opera takes a deep dive into the cut-throat politics behind a major cultural institution.

#COLCOA ‘21 Official Line Up: Germinal (TV Series, eps 1 & 2)

This highly ambitious, beautifully produced adaptation of Emile Zola’s great masterpiece takes us to a mining town in Northern France in the late 19th century. The series depicts the harsh working conditions, dire poverty and life-and-death dangers the coal miners face, day in and day out, and the political commitment that inspires them to revolt and launch a brutal strike. Dazzling production values and forceful performances deftly bring Zola’s fierce world to life. But this most recent reinterpretation of his monumental novel also gives prominence to several characters omitted from previous film adaptations, with a pointed emphasis on the position of women in society.

This Saturday is for #StandingTall, another #COLCOAVirtualFilm released yesterday.

Abandoned by his mother (#SaraForestier) at the age of 6, Malony (#RodParadot) is constantly in and out of juvenile court. An adoptive #family grows around this young delinquent: Florence (#CatherineDeneuve), a children’s magistrate nearing retirement, and Yann (#BenoîtMagimel), a caseworker and himself the survivor of a very difficult childhood. Together they follow the boy’s journey and try unfailingly to save him. Then Malony is sent to a stricter educational center, where he meets Tess (#DianeRouxel), a very special young girl who will show him that there are reasons for hope.
