Presentation

  • 2025, somewhere in the freezing international waters. Interior night. Cold. The reception hall of a cruise liner. Even colder outside. Disturbing boarding for seven stowaways, between Denmark and Greenland. This is no love boat, but a cruise ship drifting away in a hostile environment scarred by global warming. What are they doing there? A former minister from Greenland, her ex-adviser, an environmental activist, a journalist, a businessman's widow, the ship's captain, and a teenage girl try to understand who so mysteriously brought them together and why. Is this a political thriller? A prophetic piece of ecological fiction? A claustrophobic dark comedy? A deadly journey? Halfway between theatre and cinema, in a gigantic set with an equally impressive backstage area, Anne-Cécile Vandalem leads us on an epic expedition with icily precise tension, in which both global warming and vengeance are dishes best served cold
