John et Michael

John et Michael

| 10 min

Court métrage de pâte à modeler sur table lumineuse, qui donne vie avec beaucoup de sensibilité aux diverses émotions qui tissent le quotidien de John et Michael. Le film transcende nos idées préconçues sur la déficience, la sexualité et la mort. Dans ce récit fortement touchant, les différences s'évanouissent. L'amour n'est-il pas le propre de la condition humaine!
