Richard Nixon is the disgraced president with a legacy to save. David Frost is a jet-setting television personality with a name to make. This is the legendary battle between the two men and the historic encounter that changed both their lives. For three years after resigning from office, Nixon remained silent. But in the summer of 1977, the steely, cunning former commander-in-chief agreed to sit for one all-inclusive interview to confront the questions of his time in office and the Watergate scandal that ended his presidency. Everyone is surprised that Nixon would select Frost as his televised confessor, intending to easily outfox the breezy British showman and secure a place in the hearts and minds of Americans (as well as a $600,000 fee). Likewise, Frost's team harbors doubts that their boss will be able to hold his own. But as cameras roll, a charged battle of wits results

The adventure of a lifetime begins ... with babies. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmes, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, this visually stunning film follows four babies during their first year on earth - from first breath to first steps. Across borders and cultures, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, Babies re-defines the nonfiction art form and joyfully captures the earliest stages of the human journey that are both unique and universal to us all. Exploring the world of its tiny heroes in locations that are worlds apart - the Namibian savannah, the Mongolian steppe, a Japanese megalopolis and sunny California - Babies makes a universal statement with strength and passion. Babies is a visual and sensorial experience that will reveal the most basic human emotions. Apart from establishing shots of locations and seasons, and close-ups of the baby's physical environment, the film is composed of the unique moments that, as every parent knows, punctuate a child's first year and tell a fascinating story. Every shot tells a story by its content and its framing, confronting the baby with a world that seems gigantic, potentially hostile or simply needing to be explored
