Courtepointe vidéographique composée d'une série de scènes brèves, de poèmes chantés et de vérités contradictoires énoncées en voix off. Naviguant du réalisme à l'onirique et du grave à l'ironique, ce vidéo présente les déambulations d'une jeune femme et d'un jeune homme qui sont exaspérés de vivre dans une société figée mais qui, minés par l'incertitude, ont beaucoup de mal à s'engager dans quelque voie que ce soit. Ces deux amis, qui ragent de ne savoir rager et qui s'exaspèrent d'être exaspérés, se confrontent sans cesse au quotidien qu'ils essaient de dépasser pour atteindre le verso du monde.

Au verso du monde is a videographic quilt composed of a series of short scenes, sung poems and contradictory truth stated by off-screen voices. Balanced between the realistic and oneiric, the serious and ironic, this video presents the story of a girl and a boy who are exasperated of living a society that is stuck. Undermined by their own uncertainty, they are unable to decide what direction they themselves should take. These two friends, enraged at not knowing how to rage and exasperated of being exasperated, continuously confront daily life, attempting to surpass it in order to reach the flip side of the world.
