La Révolte de Tremblay en France, 2017 [New commission]
Cinematic film trailer with sound (approx. 3 mins)
La Révolte de Tremblay en France depicts a revolt of school children. Tremblay is one of the suburbs of Paris which is often depicted by the media as a suburban dystopia rife with excessive police presence, burning buses and deteriorated residential bars. However, in reality, the new College Pierre de Ronsard (where the revolt takes place), is a school which is comfortably installed in a residential environment and differs greatly from the hyped media fantasy that haunts the collective imagination.
For this project HeHe wants to reveal the artifice and falsehood that the media perpetuates. Working with the college students, they recreate and replay scenes of disorder and social disorder: an aesthetic appropriation of a myth. Supported by simple filmic means and the use of special effects, they create a stage which depicts the air of rebellion.
