Worth Watching: Trailer for French Dystopian Sci-Fi Film 'Carre Blanc'
How about a dose of dystopian sci-fi to start your week? Twitch has posted a very mesmerizing trailer for a French sci-fi film called Carré Blanc from filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Léonetti. It looks incredibly weird and twisted, but Twitch has seen it and has great things to say. Here's how they describe the film: "Carre Blanc is a near future arthouse science fiction picture that fuses the dark absurdism of Franz Kafka with the icily precise visuals of a Tarkovsky, the picture is a slyly hilarious commentary on capitalism gone badly wrong." Unfortunately it's in French without any subtitles, but it still looks great and intrigues me anyway.

Here's the only IMDb logline: In the future, society's weak are killed and used for meat. Maybe that gives away too much? Carré Blanc is both written and directed by French filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Léonetti, making his feature debut after the 2003 award winning short Le pays des ours. This was produced by Solair Films and Tarantula Suisse. DistriB Films released Carré blanc in France in February earlier this year, but it doesn't have a US distributor or release date yet. We'll have to keep watch for this and will let you know if it shows up at any festivals or otherwise. Jump over to Twitch to read more and watch clips from Carré Blanc.
