Un monde sans humains / 2012 / 52 minutes / 3:00 pm
For about a decade, technology has been progressively and surreptitiously creeping its way into our daily lives to a point at which we have become totally dependent on it. These warnings are at the heart of this investigative documentary’s reflection, at a cross-section of huge financial stakes, powerful lobbies and people who are sounding today’s alarm bells. The fusion between man and machine has already started and it is high time to question where exactly does man stand in this race for progress.
L’urgence de ralentir / 2014 / 85 minutes / 5:30 pm
The documentary tells stories about citizens of the world who have joined forces: creating cooperative and supportive groups, giving birth to a series of projects able to find a real alternative to the traditional concept of growth at any cost and rhythm. the documentary has won this year the Green Up Film Festival.
