France / 2021 / 49 min / Color


It is called a ghost town, “the only island in the world surrounded by land”. Unfinished sites and oversized buildings, with ocher brick walls. Surrounded by the dry fields of a lunar landscape. And the wind! Here, we are somewhere else, we are nowhere, but we play, we swim, we mingle, we get tattoos. Behind these walls, we dive into the colorful worlds of inhabitants of all ages. Is this the remnants of a dream? An undisturbed nightmare? Or a wonderful playground?
