L'An 2008 (The Year 2008)| 19mins
Director: Martin Le Chevallier | Producer: Red Star Cinema
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: France
"The Year 2008" stages a series of dialogues between archetypal figures of globalization: French consumer, Amazonian land clearer, Chinese worker, etc. They challenge and accuse one another of responsibility for the difficulties they are going through, and find excuses for the damages they are causing. The globalization of exchanges and difficulties is thereby summarized in a tale on the scale of a village, where the collective tragedy is supplanted by the fantasies of individuals.
