Black Ocean


Marion Hänsel

With: Nicolas Robin, Adrien Jolivet, Romain David, Nicolas Gob

Three young boys aboard a French naval vessel in 1974, unaware of the risks they run and the dramatic effects on our planet, take part in the nuclear tests in Mururoa, in the Pacific. A raw acerbic story about the relationships of the men on board, confronted with discipline, violence, occasionally friendship but most of all by a solitude and distress that cannot be shared and is much too heavy to bear when one is only 18.
