To complete the tribute to Michael Douglas, a previously unreleased documentary by Amine Mestari, produced by Folamour and soon to be broadcast on Arte, will be shown on the Festival site for two days, from Sunday May 14 at 6pm to Tuesday May 16 at 6pm.
MICHAEL DOUGLAS, THE PRODIGAL SON by Amine Mestari
A production of Arte France and Folamour Productions, with the support of Ciné+.
This special documentary shows us how Michael, an actor and producer like his father Kirk, had to embrace their resemblance throughout his remarkable career in order to assert his difference. The time to learn how to become Michael when your name is Douglas.
Thanks to Arte, Ciné+ and Folamour.
