Emilie Nouveau - Studio des Ursulines


Not your typical

With this beautiful animated adaptation of his graphic novel, Albert Vázquez brings to life his powerful and uncompromising dystopia, depicting a misguided and despaired youth trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world fraught with danger, lurking both without and within. Tinged with an utterly dark humour, this Green pamphlet in red and black features a group of teenagers coping with police brutality and global generation gap, and seeking a way out through the use of various substances. Not your typical "feel-good" film (and then, why not?), but definitely a must see!
