Festival starts in


A metallic tetrahedron floats through a milky abyss. All is calm – until this geometric form suddenly deconstructs, atomizing into billions of fragments. What was once a negative space is now dense with chaos. All that was rational and understood has come undone.

This is the beginning of a journey: one of creative destruction where everything solid melts into air, then condenses once more. It’s the hypnotic allegory of the eternal return, a spiritual journey where life and death are infinitely interchangeable.

Through purely abstract forms and movement, Recoding Entropia questions the spectator’s place in the universe, offering an immersive journey into the mysteries of extinction and rebirth.

Director's Biography:

After graduating from Fine Arts, François Vautier worked with contemporary art galleries in Paris. He then embarked upon a collaboration with ARTE (a European television network). Connecting with Raphael Nadjari he founded "A Bout Portant" and "Filmmaker Factory" whereby he continued to produce highly creative opening titles and his first feature film: the thriller "le P'tit Bleu". Continuing his research in design, François expanded on new processes of shooting in virtual studios. His second feature film "Déjà Vu" is a science fiction film. The story of a teenager in a futuristic fable where the reality merges with the virtual. He then prolongs the exploration of "Parallel Worlds" in the realization of "Twenty Show", the first user generated film (co-directed by Godefroy Fouray).

Between 2010 and 2012 he directed 3 experimental short films: “BLADE RUNNER REVISITED” (shown on Canal+), “ABANDONNED PLACES” and “ANTZ IN MY SCANNER” (shown on US Network) which were screened at many festivals through the world, including the Universal Exhibition in Shanghai after totalling several million views on the web.
