Dimanche (work in progress)

Somewhere in the near future… Humanity has failed to adapt to the new ecological reality. The world as we know it has come to an end. How does humanity respond?

Sometime in the near future...

Humanity has failed to adapt to the new ecological reality. It is officially the end of the world as we know it.

In a small building in the city centre, a family is about to spend their Sunday together, a family tradition. But the walls are shaking, strong winds and torrential rain rage outside and the storm has only just begun.

Amidst this climatic chaos, the protagonists absurdly attempt to maintain a normal family life.

Meanwhile, three travelling wildlife reporters are doing their best to document the apocalypse. They film, with what little equipment they have, Earth's last living species: three wild animals on the brink of extinction.

Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Dimanche paints a witty and tender portrait of humanity surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature.

In doing so, Dimanche observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, going to absurd extremes to keep up a sense of normalcy despite the chaos of an ecological collapse.
