The Umbrella

Claire Ledru
France | 2022 | 15’30

Incessant rain erodes the earth, its material collapses, nothing remains of the landscape except long and narrow pillars rising against an immense sky. On one of these islands, a survivor stands still, clinging to his umbrella, his only weapon against the downpour. In the narrow confines of this tiny stage, individuals will be forced to live one on top of the other.
