BIRDS OF A DIFFERENT FEATHER

If you were expecting a thrilling documentary on Brittany’s seagull population, sorry to disappoint. There will be birds all right, boding both well and hell, but these tales are hardly for the birds. Look at them instead not only as an avian refuge harboring a zillion other creatures reflecting our most vile and primevil instincts, but also fate-spun, hybrid avatars, a resounding echo of slumbering angst and an ode to unrequited love… Be amazed by what non-humans can do or, on the contrary, undo. A message to plucked bipeds near and far: we may want to flock together during
Laissez-vous donc surprendre par ce que les non-humains ont à nous offrir ou, au contraire, à nous ôter. Et qu’on se le dise : nous autres bipèdes déplumés n’avons qu’à bien nous tenir.

FILL-TO-THE-GRIM

"Put your paw in the honey pot, it might just get stuck." It seems there is no greater flaw than an overpowering urge for overkill. At Court Métrange, a culinary sin here and there doesn’t cut it for these persnickety palates; we’re all about a full out blow-out, driving our digestion to the ne plus ultra in appetite apogee. No room for our picky-eating selves tonight for a Michelin star-deserving feast fit for a king (and queen) has set a place for you at the table. With our reputation at stake, we have put on a big spread with a most mouthwatering screening. The six shorts on this gastronomic menu are to be masticated without restraint (can’t say that’s an issue around here). Fear not: regardless of your film fussiness, there will be something for everyone. As the saying goes, "Eating whets the appetite." So, what do you say to another hell-ping?
