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.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
