Shining Hopes behind the Shadows




Guillaume, a student at Telecom ParisTech, decides to direct an experimental musical movie called Powerville with a group of friends. In it, they talk about power issues in the work place.

The entire movie must be shot in one day in one of the school’s classrooms. Yet, very soon, both in the movie and on set, the film crew and the actors struggle with power relations.

Will Guillaume and his friends succeed in achieving their creative and collective vision of power?

There is no time to loose: the most important thing is to shoot all the scenes, and quick. So…Rolling and... Action!

This musical comedy is a “play within a play” where both dramatic genres are united to address the theme of power with derision and humor.
