What with the climate crisis and the destruction
of the environment, these are worrying times.
Attempts at alternative lifestyles to counter this
abound, as do theories about the collapse of
the industrial era that intersect and contradict
each other: collapsology, solastalgia, ecoanxiety,
etc. But how do you find your way? For
Louise Deltrieux, an intellectual and personal
enquiry begins. The investigation leads to this
light-hearted essay, a deliberately “hand-made”
animation as shown by the modesty of its
drawings. The clearly stated desire for low-tech
echoes the material itself, which blends sources
and points of view into a single voice – hers. A
film in the form of an inner dialogue shot through
with doubts and all the “topias” of the title – an
experiment laid out in a lively and stimulating
patchwork. (Nicolas Feodoroff)
