This is the trans dystopian commune we are all dying to visit. Living gleefully in the French countryside, these queers are sent spiralling when a newbie arrives. The film grapples with the myths of queer utopia by tearing it apart. Echoing post-horror aesthetics and manipulating genre tropes in meaty ways, this is a poetic joyride to the underworld that never loses its glamour amid plenty of gore.

dir. Alice Michaud | France 2022 | 65'
