Même un détour serait correct – MUDSC -est une dérive dans les nouvelles villes encloisonnées, dans les villes forteresses, les villes-privées, où la peur de l’autre est portée à l’extrême et où les caméras de surveillance, les portails télécommandés et les gardiens de sécurité sont devenus les nouvelles nécessités de cette vie à l’abri de la vie elle-même.

Dans cette topographie du conflit, il y a aussi l’espoir de trouver un terrain neutre pour construire ou reconstruire un espace habitable.
Même un détour serait correct : 32 minutes
Français avec sous-titres anglais

MUDSC: Même un détour serait correct – translated: ‘Even a detour would be all right’ is a poetic expedition into; urban sprawl, gated communities, those private cities of our new world where the fear of the others is pushed to the extreme. Those are the places where surveillance cameras, remote controlled doors and security guards have become the new necessities of this life sheltered from life itself.In this topography of conflict there is also the hope to find a neutral ground to build or to rebuild a liveable space.
