Lagardere Studios’ production label, Imagissime, is developing several internationally-driven documentaries, including “The Rise of Modern Cooking” and “Living Under the Third Reich.”
“The Rise of Modern Cooking,” which has been commissioned by Franco-German network, Arte, and is being co-produced with Belgian and Canadian partners, pays homage to Auguste Escoffier — the restaurateur and culinary writer who modernized traditional French cooking methods. The documentary, directed by Olivier Julien, mixes archival, animated, and live-action footage.
Imagissime is also developing “Living Under the Third Reich” with German outfit, Dok Films, a two-part documentary entirely based on archives of color footage shot by ordinary Germany families from 1936, right before the start of WWII, to 1944, a year before the downfall of the Nazi regime and the end of the war. Through the silent footage, audiences will get a glimpse at the rise of Nazism and its impact on everyday life in Germany.
