Certain archetypal characters — soldier, psychopath, alien, robot — will forever have their place in the 7th art. These heroic figures and legendary characters belong to their own film genres: thrillers, war movies, spy movies, and science fiction. Genre films themselves adhere to unwritten rules that directors tend to follow, as well as stretching and surpassing them. D’un genre à l’autre” is a deep dive into the evolution of genre films, setting out on the trail of these heroes of the big screen, whether intriguing, affecting, ambiguous, or repellent, via an insightful selection of films that helped shaped the history of cinema.

Jean-Philippe Gunet

At a time when everyone has access to information, where technology allows everyone to stand up as a witness to the news, it is so tempting to think that journalists are no longer useful. But me , I completely continue to believe in this profession. It is precisely because information is everywhere that it is more necessary than ever to have journalists capable of deciphering it, prioritizing it and giving it meaning. This is what I have always enjoyed doing with the different subjects I work on and what I want to keep doing, regardless of the medium.
