Short & sweet

Sunday observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, going to absurd extremes to keep up a sense of normalcy despite the chaos of an ecological collapse.

Still curious?

In a small building in the city center, a family is about to spend their Sunday together, a family tradition. But the walls are shaking, strong winds and torrential rain rage outside and the storm has only just begun. Amidst this climatic chaos, the protagonists absurdly attempt to maintain a normal family life.

Meanwhile, somewhere else on the planet, three travelling wildlife reporters are doing their best to document the apocalypse. They film, with what little equipment they have, Earth's last living species: three wild animals on the brink of extinction.

Collective insanity, blindness to the bleeding obvious; it’s a rich subject for bittersweet clowning. Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Sunday paints a witty and tender portrait of humanity surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature.
