Ne travaille pas (1968–2018)

Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier are both students at the Beaux-Arts school in Paris. They are in a relationship and conduct together an artistic research in dance.They become artists in an uncertain period. The footage, without dialogue, hypnotised by the music of the duo Avia X Orly, combines gestures, symbols, world events and the everyday life of the two students from March 2017 to March 2018. The film harnesses the frenzy of the digital flow through a visual proposal. It presents the paradoxes of a society celebrating the events of May 68, fifty years on. The film by the renowned French director, who often works at the interface of visual arts and dance, blurring the boundaries of those genres, received the Fipresci Prize (Prize Of The International Federation Of Film Critics) at the Viennale 2018:
„Sensation, sexuality, confusion. Performance, insistence, resistance ... Escalation and distraction. Detachment... or commitment? … This film is a hypnotic collage, a vibrant composition, a powerful drum roll that leads us into a moment of silence ... .”
