AU REVOIR JÉRÔME
Directed by Chloé FARR, Gabrielle SELNET, Adam SILLARD, "AU REVOIR JÉRÔME" transports us into a dreamlike universe. Just arrived in paradise, Jérôme starts looking for his wife Maryline. As he searches, he sinks deeper and deeper into a surreal and colorful world where no one seems to be able to help him.
The film has already won prestigious awards, notably at the Berlinale and Anima in Brussels, and was selected at the Sundance and Annecy Festivals.

In a small village governed by ridiculous laws, three singing sisters and their dog rehearse for the annual fall festival. But an unexpected event will upset their plans.
Set in a fictional country, this eight-minute comedy-drama, made entirely in 3D animation mixed with 2D elements, is a subtly ferocious satire of some of the authoritarian regimes still in existence today.
They denounce the obstacles to freedom of expression for women artists today.
