In a world devastated by war!
Where violence is the only law!
Brian, Joff, Mike and Sandy have only three minutes!
A nuclear holocaust threatens mankind!
Will these kids complete their mission before dinner?
From a very young age, we are all confronted to violence. At the beginning, my project was a reflection on the fol- lowing conclusion: the relationship I have with war, how it affects me, the way my imagination relates to it; which is very different from when I was a child. My friends and I were playing war in all its forms, and our games were about great warriors.
Today, even if I don’t tolerate war in anyway and make it clear in my speeches, I often find myself experiencing the excitement of a child when I watch action movies showing violent scenes and scenes of disasters.
The short film that I directed, attempts to bring us back to these great warriors. During the daily games of my child- hood, we were picturing ourselves as these heroes from the Hollywood action movies. We relive those moments of childhood bliss in this picture.
The end of the short film shows the child confronted to the adults’ world, a world that has forgotten the joy of these war games.
