MA work

C'est pas la fin du monde [It's not the end of the world]

Imagine the Mayan prophecy materialised. The end of the world has extinguished the human race. Except in a small village in the south of France. Bugarach, the modern ark of Noah. The 22nd of December, humanity starts off with a clean slate. The world population (a rough 1,000 individuals) is composed out of one third policemen, one third journalists and one third clowns who managed to get through the police controls.

Jan Matthys and Peter Van Hoecke would have been the only male Belgians in this charming composition. Bound by their love for George Brassens and their curiosity for this phenomenon described as the end of the world, the two friends undertake a trip to Bugarach.
