Don't Work (1968-2018)
| Dutch English German
In turbulent and disorienting times, an artists couple explores the experimental means of expression. The result is a hypnotically vibrant portrait of generations.
Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier are both students at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris. They are in a relationship and do artistic research together.
The footage, without dialogue, hypnotized 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 takes advantage of the frenzy of the digital flow through a visual proposal. It shows the paradoxes of a society that fifty years later celebrates the events of May 68.
