Is This Real?
A thriller set in Dordogne, a poetic fable centered around a gang of young social outcasts, a biopic about an urban legend, a descent into hell alongside a journalist, or a plunge into a techno night in Marseille, these five singular films play with spectators' expectations and blur the boundaries between dream and reality.
