MOANA FILMS/LINCOLN TV
After almost 20 years at the head of FIDÉLITÉ FILMS with Olivier Delbosc, Marc Missonnier created MOANA FILMS, a new structure born from his desire for a new direction, breaking with lines and reflexes built by the force of habit.
Since his first feature as producer in 1998, Marc Missonnier has built a filmography mounting to the production of 70 feature films, counting numerous co-productions with Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Hungary, Sweden, Japan or Canada. His aspiration has always been to develop and produce a variety of projects in terms of genre, budget or configuration. Through MOANA FILMS, Marc Missonnier hopes to keep those objectives while continuing to accompany renowned authors. This will build new relationships and allow the discovery of talents in France and abroad.
The company is currently developing a new line-up of features and series made up of various genres : science fiction, war movies, dramas, comedies, historical movies... and recently bought the rights to adapt the novel LA TRESSE by Laetitia Colombani, a best-seller in a dozen countries such as France (more than 500.000 copies sold), Germany, and Netherlands.

Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family - Jacques, his wife Simone and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel - live in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean sea. By day they dive, by night they watch the stars. It’s paradise on earth. But Jacques is never content. He lives and breathes adventure and believes absolutely in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the aqualung, his recently acquired vessel the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers he is ready to cross the world’s oceans. Ten years later, back from the boarding school to which he was sent with Jean-Michel, Philippe finds his father greatly altered – an international celebrity with megalomaniac dreams of grafting gills to humans and creating underwater cities. Jacques cannot see it yet, but Philippe already understands that progress and pollution have begun to lay waste to the submarine world. Despite their mutual love and admiration, violent conflict between these two passionate men is inevitable. But on their greatest adventure together aboard the Calypso, in Antarctica, they will find each other - before tragedy strikes.
