16.06. / Wednesday, 22:00 - 00:00 Ticket

This is semidocumentary study of Charlotte, Luc, and Marta, Paris students aged between 25 and 30. A superbly-edited patchwork of conversations and monologues, the film snapshots a generation touched directly by socio-political upheavals – a triple portrait which eventually sees a fourth character enter and stimulatingly expand the frame, in the form of director Girard herself.
