Attack the Sun

Audio Tracks 

Attack the Sun is the first-time collaboration between Fabien Zocco (contemporary artist) and Gwendal Sartre (filmmaker, contemporary artist).

The dialogues of the film have been generated by an artificial intelligence during the filming, the actors receiving in realtime the text they had to perform.

The machine interfere with the writing of the film, and steers the drift of this young californian guy who, while driving his car, is sinking deeper and deeper through the maze of his mind. It guides the progressive dilution of the language and the psyche of the main character.

Using the visual codes of self-filming on the Internet, the film reveals the obscure detours of this wandering through a magma of images, words, places, that coagulate each other. Where will it end ? The film outlines in filigree the figure of a potential killer, combining frustration, isolation and technologically assisted narcissism.
