The movie

Eight ECAL students set out to explore the fantasy genre and all of its possibilities, from dreamy romance to crazy experimentations, from the zombie flick to the absurdist drama. These eight short films shot DIY-style with a handful of Swiss francs put out all the stops (HD, Super8, Super16, DV…) to form a surprising collection of imaginary self-portraits. Fantasy becomes a strange mirror for the poetic and radical sensibilities of these young filmmakers.
