Icarus Balance

a film by Patric Jean
Length 90'
Language FR, EN, AR, GR, IT
Subtitles FR,EN



In the Mediterranean, both a real and fictional place at once. Where Icarus threw himself off to burn his wings. Where ships, fishermen, migrants fleeing disaster and saviors meet. And where scientifics study the consequences of global warming on the seabed. It’s where evidence reveals itself: has our capacity to measure and interpret the world fallen into an excessive technology? Therefore, losing its meaning to humans and making us burn our wings? What would Euclid and Thales have to say about the rising seas? How would they judge our cynicism?
