Part of the ambition as well as part of the dream prompted Kingersheimois Marco Stuppy, 20, and Mulhouse Aurélien Broucke, 23, to produce “a short film, two medium-length films, and a feature film” … in the long run.

A futuristic thing that “breaks codes”, mixing science fiction and Western fiction. “We wanted to prove to ourselves that we can do it without knowing anything about it and without starting from the idea that whoever says science fiction will have a big budget,” says Marco Stobi. Aurélien, to him, quotes Notes too lateWho episodes the album The party is over Made by rapper Orelsan And that sums up the start of their adventure nicely: “If you want to make movies, you just need something to film.”

The mine. High school students enrolled in Montaigne, Louis-Armand and Stoessel in Mulhouse, as well as students at cinema option at Kirschleger High School in Münster.
What will happen next, knowing this the village And the The mine Will it be presented to the public at the same time, instead of “end of 2021”? It still sounds very mysterious, but there has to be the issue of “shooting in sand and factories, in 2022 or 2023”. Always with the same red thread and without rushing.
