A Virus in the City

A Feature film by Cédric Venail

Produced by Atopic, Huckleberry Films

Production year : 2008


    At the beginning of the 1990s, the French-Israeli artist Absalon conceived a "life project"  that was radically different from the usual aspirations individuals may harbor for a better life. To get his project underway, he built six small Cells, six individual houses destined for the world's big cities:  Paris, Zurich, New York, Tel-Aviv, Frankfort, Tokyo... Since Absalon's death, his Cells can be found in international museums where they no longer demonstrate their purpose, or their effect.  While listening to Absalon explain his project during a slideshow in 1993, the film presents his houses and their locations. But what has happened since then? What remains of his project today? Between memories and projections, I wanted to see for myself. I found A Virus in the City. - Cédric Venail
