La Possession


A woman is stuck in a downward spiral. Someone suggests her to colonize other bodies. She tries. And migrates inside a chair, a plant, a bat. Another woman. By using a classic theme of theatre and horror movies, François-Xavier Rouyer applies the principle of the remake to human beings. Evoking capitalist devouring, the fear of “great replacement”, gender issues as well as inter-species crossbreeding, La Possession feasts on our unrealized desires, the dreamed life of others and our collective dead ends. In the post-climate world that is becoming ours, we no longer run away from ghosts. We are running after them.
