OPEN-MINDED PEOPLE

Two young French men from different social backgrounds spend time together to know each other. They explore the suburbs around Paris and visit vacated utopian architectural projects built in an era when a better future for all was still the goal of society. Inspired, they hope for their own personal utopia where they are free to love each other. Subtitled. 21 minutes. Selected and primed at numerous European gay and lesbian film festivals.

Banlieue parisienne. Thomas (Pierre Elliott), adolescent un peu introverti, rencontre via un site gay Julien (Romain Poli). Ils font connaissance tout en parcourant les cités. Attraction, mais Thomas reste sur ses gardes. Julien, lui, se dévoile, parle de son utopie de trouver un garçon avec qui s’échapper dans des lieux imaginaires. Les deux jeunes hommes se sont-ils bien trouvés ?
