Satellite Jockey: Paix sociale

Directed by: Rémi Richarme
Short synopsis:

Based on the realisation that it feels good to make a little fun of the "president of the wealthy" at the moment, the director chose to animate E. Macron in turn as a disco dancer, vampire-banker and extreme jet-skier!

La Chair de ma chère

Directed by: Antoine Blandin
Short synopsis:

Perceptions of reality are sometimes beyond belief. A child relives a dramatic event that had been buried for a long time.

Big Boy

Directed by: Jonathan Phanhsay-Chamson
Short synopsis:

A sketch of redemption for a man who grew up, deconstructing his first depiction of the world through poetry.

Le Taxi de Sun City

Directed by: Thomas Trichet
Short synopsis:

Charles is victim of impulsive phobias and ruminations that worry and disturb him. His life is spoilt by visions of himself committing criminal acts to those around him.

La Faillite

Directed by: Jean-Jean Arnoux
Short synopsis:

A man frees himself from his social constraints during a liberating dance.

Scum Mutation

Directed by: Ov
Short synopsis:

Here you are Scum, a creature in cage. Inside the rage of our time, your individual and societal wound questions our visceral link to violence. Scum, in your silicon hands young germs are growing and mutating.

Le ciel au-dessus de la ville

Directed by: Rosalie Loncin
Short synopsis:

In a distant future, a community living in a desert universe remembers with melancholy the time when there were still trees, insects, and birds.

Under Twilight

Directed by: Jean-Gabriel Périot
Short synopsis:

Beauty and/or Destruction.

Contraindre

Directed by: Fleury Fontaine
Short synopsis:

We are all prisoners of a nationality, a social condition, a skin colour to which the State’s repression forces us to resign ourselves. This film tells how bodies suffer, under blows, constraints and humiliation.

Coucou Tchoutchou

Directed by: Charlie Mars
Short synopsis:

Exactly like our world. Try it and see.
