Between the devastation of forest fires and the exaltation of a woman entranced by fire, the element is put forth as a form of rebellion and purification. Reflection and ecstasy burn in the same fire.
Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel return to IndieLisboa after their full retrospective in 2019. Their films since the first “Tant qu’il nous reste des fusils à pompe” always cared for restless and morally complex characters and in this film the main character, played by Caroline Poggi, faced with all the injustice around her decides to burn the world. In this time we live in, of endless bad news, doomscrolling and capitalist suffocation, will you watch the fire or burn inside it? (Rui Mendes)
