César Vayssié

“Unable to formulate a social project and concrete solutions, a small group of young people imagines spectacular, artistic and political action stigmatizing the role of television through chaos currently upsetting contemporary society. Once the action is taken, the group easily slips out of the bounds of law. The action is filmed in an isolated chalet up in the Alps and in Nanterre-Amandiers. The image borrows freely and empirically from kino-genic codes and the artifices of theatre in search of allegorical and choreographic forms of narrative. The theatre is an arts workshop and a base camp, props in a fiction whose main characters are also comedians, a company, a rock band, a small group, and inoperative artists engaging in the kind of action that might change their lives. Perhaps.“ Thus César Vayssié describes this project, initially meant for theatre performances, and whose cheery and heckled first version, still unreleased, is presented on screen. (JPR)
