Le poids des fourmis
The weight of the world lies heavy on Jeanne and Olivier. She vandalizes ads. He dreams of his generation being burned like marshmallows. Then, a school election is organized as part of the shamefully underfunded Future Week. Catalyzed by the hope that they can make a difference, the two face off in an election campaign filled with fiery speeches, ninja treks, collusion and g***amn unicorns.
Le poids des fourmis juggles issues of citizen mobilization, global angst and abuse of power with scathing humour. Oscillating between a desire for change and crushing pessimism, Le poids des fourmis asks audiences to reflect on the weight they carry on their shoulders, but above all, the weight they carry in the world.
