The Besieged fortress

The Besieged fortress

A Feature film by Philippe Calderon

Produced by Les Films du Rêve

Release in France : 18/10/2006


    In the middle of the African savannah, in south-eastern Burkina Faso, in the safety of their high tower, termites are hard at work when a drama turns their neat and ordered life upside down.
    A deluge of tropical rain floods galleries and chambers, causing cracks and breaches to appear in the termites’ castle.
    Not far from there, a colony of terrible, carnivorous ants prepares to attack.
    They’ll take advantage of the tower’s fragility to launch a veritable assault. A merciless war ensues
