Les Anges Rouges it’s a fiction short film, shoot in VHS and green screen, it has a kind of post-apocalyptic movie spirit but in a critical, political, sarcastic way. We found the heart of the movie in what is happening today or what happened yesterday - depending on the way we look at it. The bombing in Gaza the last summer, the Ebola epidemic, the restriction of porn in England... Are these things part of yesterday? They disappeared from the news, from the declarations of politicians, from the public space.
But are they gone? They are not.
History is not just a fact, it’s something that needs to be experienced and explored, it’s something that’s moving, changing...
With the help of cinema it's maybe possible to rewrite History somewhere, somehow...
