Paris summer

by Vincent Gérard

(Fiction, France, 2016, 23’, C, OV) with Laure-Lucille Simon, Marie Alberto Jeanjacques, Théodora Marcadé, Ferdinand Milon

Paris summer

It is a story of public space, where the real insidiously interferes with the symbolic. We meet forcados, a bull, a politician, a Spanish journalist, cold henchmen of power, a Sri Lankan cook, a small beggar. The fulgurating violence crosses the spaces and returns naturally to the dust.
