THE RED ZONE
LA ZONE ROUGE
2018, France, 64′
The Red Zone is a journey into a vast area which is forbidden to any human presence or activity: the land still shows today the consequences of the Great War.
A contemporary story, without any stock footage, written with a very simple idea: (19)14-(19)18 still has influence on (20)14-(20)18. A point of view of our times on a modern issue.
These consequences are very real and concentrated in the Red Zone, impacting the territory in itself. A character will walk the land, gathering traces, feeling the land and observing the few people working there. Bomb-disposal experts, foresters, archeologists, biologists, they all share their sensations and their relationship with a territory that confronts them with this war, even though it ended a century earlier.
