A day to day life on the edge of Antarctica, during one entire year in the polar station Dumont d'Urville. 26 persons, researchers and technical staff cutted off from the rest of the world, with no escape possible.
he Dumont d'Urville scientific station in the Antarctic is one of the most remote places on earth. Jonathan, a young researcher, is about to spend on year on this station.
After four months of summer, the longest winter on Earth is settling in. The pack ice replaces the open sea. With temperatures as low as –37° C and winds of up to 300 kph, even the most resilient animals leave the region. The station soon becomes inaccessible, and everyone leaves -with the exception of Emperor penguins... and a handful of people who stay behind.

« No London Today » is an immersion into the world of five young refugees, Chafik, Aron, Abraham, Henok and Ermias, waiting and wandering in Calais, trying illegally to reach England.
"No london today". That's exactly the words Arman told me the first time I met him. We were sitting on a bench, in the street. I was on holidays in Calais, a city in the north of France, he was waiting for the night to fall, to reach England as a clandestine. That's where this strange trip started, a still trip in another Calais with no beaches, no terraces and no place in the sun.
It focuses on global political turmoil in the 1960s and '70s, particularly the rise of the New Left in France and the development of socialist movements in Latin America. Using the image of Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, the film's title evokes a dissonance between the promise of a global socialist revolution (the grin) with its actual nonexistence.
