ZONE BLANCHE (WHITE ZONE), shot on super 16mm, 22 minutes, 2014.
Four women who are electro-hypersensitive; a rare condition where people find themselves acutely intolerant to electromagnetic fields including cell phone signals and WiFi, are driven deep into the French Alps in search for remote underground shelters. Now struggling to survive on the fringes of society, their lives teeter between a primitive existence in nature and post-apocalyptic science-fiction. Because of their extreme condition, their way of life has never been photographed.
