ODE ou la vie après avoir regardé le soleil dans le blanc des yeux

General public
80 min.

Visionaries in Arkansas claim that the moon has fallen out of its orbit — that it is heading straight for the earth, where it will collide in 24 hours. Not without a dose of humor, a pack of friends meet for a party with the theme of the end of the world, in the mad hope of short-circuiting the inevitable. The night settles and stretches, a precipice where all dreams and excesses are allowed. While the ritual was only a game at the beginning, little by little, the doubt settles in. What if tomorrow really is the end?

A choral piece, ODE questions the collective ritual of the party and the power of solidarity to resist cynicism and panic.
