Dir. Francois Valenza, France, 2020, 80 mins.

Tracing a shape-shifting musical journey from his earliest chart successes to his restless odysseys to Brazil and beyond, and through the throes of creation and reinvention via a whirlwind of seductive soundtracks, Eurovision mischief and jet-set scenes, Many Lives presents the endless metamorphoses of Paris' peerless pop/electronica auteur, Sébastien Tellier.

Francois Valenza’s documentary follows the highlights of the French singer/composer's two-decade career, including his opening slot on Air’s 2001 world tour and his runway performance for Chanel during Paris Fashion Week in 2014. Many Lives includes revealing insights and stories from Tellier’s closest friends and fellow celebrities, including Jean-Michel Jarre, Xavier Veilhan and the members of Air and Phoenix.

Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
