APOCALYPSE BABY, We Advertise The End Of The World



Dir. and written by Camille Tricaud & Franziska Unger
Prod : Apocalypse Delight
Experimental / Fiction 19 min, 2021.
Status: Post Production
german w/ engl sub

Founded by Media Art Scholarship Kirch Stiftung 2020, FFA and supported by HFF München

"Apocalypse Baby, We Advertise The End Of The World" is a cynical Teleshopping Show that uses the fear of climate apocalypse as a reason to convince the audience to consume more and more. A pop satire about consumerism and climate crisis, about global warming and individualism, about hedonism and guilty conscience, about the contradictions inside of us. A reflexion about the way we look away and an exposure of the cynicism of a capitalistic system.

“A great many of us engage in this kind of climate change denial. We look for a split second and then we look away. Or we look but then turn it into a joke (“more signs of the Apocalypse!”). Which is another way of looking away.”
Naomi Klein (This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, 2014)

WICH WAY TO THE WEST



Dir. by Kristina Kilian
DOP by Camille Tricaud & Felix Herrmann
Fiction / Documentary, 36 min, 2019
german w/ engl sub

Die Jury des Deutschen Wettbewerbs in Oberhausen begründete ihre Entscheidung so: "Ein Film über eine Filmemacherin, die einen Film über ihre Auseinandersetzung mit Godards 'Allemagne Neuf Zero' dreht: Das klingt ganz schön 'meta, meta, meta' (um es mit 'Which Way to the West' selbst zu formulieren). Ist es auch, ziemlich meta, aber als Verschränkung von Hommage, Selbstzweifel, Film- und Deutschlandrecherche erweist sich der Film auch als ganz schön komisch und als Suche, die wirklich ins Offene führt. Es ist eine große Stärke von 'Which Way to the West', dass der Film, dem Meta zum Trotz, nicht vor allem smart sein will. Erst das macht ihn klug."

COUZ



Co-directed with Rabelle Erian
Documentary, 30 min, 2016
french w/ engl sub

"Sometimes I ask myself, if it's worth it. And I think: Yes. You can't say you've had a youth, if you've never chilled on the street, on the same bench with your friends for hours and hours. In these moments and places, you see everything." What would you do, if you were 17, in Marseille, school was over and summer felt like an eternity? A group of youths spends day and night together. All the while, their everyday stories are transformed into rap-texts. This film is a portrait of friendship and language. A portrait of a group, with its own rules and dynamics. A portrait of a time, summer time, free of commitments and open for new things to come.
