Hollywood Business

By Pascal Mérigeau, Bruno Icher, Jérémy Leroux


For most spec­ta­tors around the world, there is only Amer­i­can cin­e­ma. One can deplore it or be hap­py about it: cin­e­ma is embod­ied in Hol­ly­wood. But how did Amer­i­can cin­e­ma become glob­al? Invent­ed by the Lumière broth­ers, the rise of cin­e­ma was ini­tial­ly Euro­pean. So how did Hol­ly­wood quick­ly crush its Euro­pean rivals? From the film pio­neers to the moment of Net­flix, this five-part doc­u­men­tary tells the sto­ry of how Hol­ly­wood has become the world’s lead­ing pro­duc­er, despite all the obstacles.
