l'Aventurière: L'Impératrice et le Dragon

La Compagnie Des Taxi-Brousse   |   France

During the Popular Front in Paris, Cheung Li, a young Chinese woman, asks Iris, "l'Aventurière", for help. Terrified by opium dealers, she needs to recover her little girl who still lives in China. In this country torn by the civil war between nationalists and communists, partly occupied by Japanese, Iris will little-by-little discover the past of the young woman. A singular friendship between Iris and the one who legend will baptize The Red Empress, will take them from Manchuria to the remote places of China, following the Last Emperor's and the Great Helmsman's footsteps. Reason for Submission: This series is an international programme. It relates the extraordinary destiny of a young imaginary Adventurer who travels through the world between the 1920s and 1940s: from Russia to America, in Africa, in Asia, in India, in South America and in the Far North. By following her adventures, we relive the principal historic events of the beginning of the 20 th century. Between reality and fiction, this story is narrated by comic characters. The tale is illustrated with drawings and archive footage coming from more than 30 different countries. The footage is largely unknown and is used like film rushes. "L'Aventurière" will be subtitle in English in January.
