Paris, 2017: as a new president is elected in spring, the state of emergency continues. He prowls in the capital, on the lookout around old and new monuments. As the city struggles to regain its innocence, it slips gently into everyday life as well as into the lines of the constitution. Swiss filmmaker Jela Hasler returns to FEST after her major success The Meadow blew our audience’s minds a few years back. She is now back with another discreet yet multi-layered film which is a result of her own experiences in post-Bataclan attacks Paris, a city under siege and light years away from the mythical city of love. Past, present and future fuse into an obligatory film.
