Mature Audiences
FIAF Florence Gould Hall

A wildly original noir science fiction film in black and white.

In 2054, Paris is a labyrinth where all movement is monitored and recorded. Casting a shadow over everything is the city’s largest company, Avalon, which insinuates itself into every aspect of contemporary life to sell its primary export, youth and beauty. In this world of stark contrasts and rigid laws, the populace is kept in line and accounted for.

Winner of the Cristal Award at the 2006 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

Dir. Christian Volckman, 2006. 105 min. B&W. DCP.
In French with English subtitles.
