In 2011, Brigitte Bardot consented to the making of a biographical documentary. She did not participate in the film, but gave the director access to places in her life, her homes, La Madrague and La Garrigue, in Saint-Tropez, her family archives, films made by her father, from her birth to her transformation into a screen goddess. From this invaluable material, the director compiles a rare, sensitive portrait that reveals all the contradictions of a woman and a legendary, passionate actress. It also draws on passages from Initiales BB, an autobiography of the actress, comments by Bulle Ogier and film clips.

The Battle of Varna

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
