JAM CAPSULE, AN IMMERSIVE CULTURAL EXPERIENCE

JAM CAPSULE is an innovative scenic device, which immerses its audience in a completely unique sound and visual cultural experience. Viewers understand and learn by literally traveling through a series of thematic works broadcasted in 360°.
The works, which are presented in the form of 50-minute capsules, comprise different forms of art, from dance to music, painting to cinema, ecology to architecture. Any theme is possible, provided it is treated with care and its uniqueness is respected.
The choice of the word capsule gives us a name for this creation format. It is neither a film, nor a documentary, nor an exhibition in the traditional sense of the word. It is a unique immersive experience, which takes the audience on an emotionally, physically and intellectually rich journey.

With the capsule "LEGACY, LE COURAGE DE LA VÉRITÉ", Yann Arthus-Bertrand once again shares with his audience everything he has learned over the last 40 years about the beauty of the world and the damages we inflict on it. With his monumental and aesthetic work, Yann Arthus-Bertrand presents all of his most graphic images filmed for over 10 years all over the world. Totally immersed in this capsule, the music of Armand Amar plays while visitors are taken on a unique journey of discovery. From the black and white lines of the Magadi Lake salt pans in Kenya, the immense facades of the buildings of New York or Hong Kong, the audience will also be amazed by the almost unreal scenery of southern Algeria or the glaciers in Svalbard. In this original exhibition, Yann makes the Earth and Man come together, with the hope of evoking a new love story.

DIRECTED BY YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND

French photographer, journalist, reporter and environmentalist. He is president of the GOODPLANET Foundation, which he created in 2005. He began his career in the 1980s photographing lions in the Maasai Mara, in Kenya. In 1994, he began an in-depth study of the state of the planet, which was sponsored by UNESCO. As part of this study, he drew up an aerial photographic inventory of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. The book that resulted from this project, The Earth from Above, has sold over 4 million copies and has been translated into 24 languages. Following this success, Yann Arthus-Bertrand took to the skies once again and released his first film, Home, produced by Luc Besson and seen by 600 million people worldwide.
In 2015, he released the film Human, which premiered at the United Nations and the Venice Film Festival. Falling somewhere between Home and the audiovisual exhibition “7 Billion Others”, Human brings together interviews with individuals from many cultural and economic backgrounds, in 45 countries, and aerial views from around the world.

ORIGINAL MUSIC BY ARMAND AMAR

Armand Amar, who is French of Moroccan origin (born in Jerusalem), spent his childhood in Morocco. He grew up surrounded by the sounds of instruments that were at the time considered exotic and was quickly influenced by this feeling of «elsewhere». Self-taught, he is constantly in search of highly physical experiences: he is learning to play the tablas (Indian percussion), discovering the zarb (cup drum from Iran) and the congas (Cuban percussion instruments). He studied with various masters of traditional and classical music. His encounter with dance in 1976 was another decisive moment in his career. His spiritual and musical influences are reflected in his film scores: Amen (2002) by Costa-Gavras and the director's subsequent films; Le concert (César for best film score in 2009), Va, vis et deviens (2006) and other films by Radu Mihaileanu; Indigènes (2006), by Rachid Bouchareb; Tu seras mon fils (2011) by Gilles Legrand; Home (2009) and Human (2015) by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. He received the «Amanda Award» for the best film soundtrack with The Trial, by Norwegian director Erik Poppe. He recently wrote the music for L'École buissonnière, by Nicolas Vanier, and for Mia et le lion blanc, by Gilles de Maistre. In 1994, he founded the label LONG DISTANCE, which is dedicated to «world music». His own work has been released by Naïve, Long Distance, Universal, Sony and Warner.
