We Point is an original documentary series that follows a group of students from the American Ballet School (SAB) in New York for a year.

In this mini-series, the students are busy polishing the final preparations for a choreography by George Balanchine for a performance of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.
There’s also the first season of The Incredible Hulk. You can thus discover the very first episodes of the cult series broadcast in 1978, Nostalgia guaranteed!

Another beautiful animated film, Ferdinand follows the story of a bull with a big heart. After a mistake, the animal is taken for a dangerous beast and is captured.
