| Synopsis

Through dance, the symbolism of the body and the stereotypes associated with bodies, Anne Nguyen invites the onlooker to question the concept of cultural appropriation.

“Épicentre. A film that “queries the influence that large architectural complexes have over human and social behavior,” and celebrates the 60th anniversary of résidence Le Parc by the architect Fernand Pouillon. In order to highlight the monumental and timeless aspects of his developments, I decided to have the dancers wear Native American headdresses. Yes, like the ones you often see in westerns. Well, actually, my frame of reference is Michael Jackson’s Black or White. (…)” – Anne Nguyen
