Narrative Short Film / 22 min / 2015

1982. German film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder secretely arranges a temporary exit from the world : thanks to the pioneering technology conceived by a French physicist, he has his prematurely aged body cryogenised for posterity.  He wakes up in France, in 2028.  The country has fallen under the yoke of a depressing dictatorship.
