Director Statement

In this film we propose an allegory to this quest that humanity currently engages in, the exit from this supposedly civilized, ultra-industrialized world. Caught between the injunctions to produce and consume to no end, and to recycle, our generation is constantly looking for a way out of this tug of war. In this short film shot in a plastic reprocessing plant, we highlight this quandary by mixing poetry, dance, purity and innocence against the backdrop of a sterile, hard and dark world. Could we hope that one day, dance, poetry and recycling could work together to offer solutions to Humanity?
