2015 – 77’
Over two years, from spring 2012 until spring 2014, The Last Continent offers a subjective immersion into an evolving political experiment: the one set up by those opposed to the Great-Western Airport project in Notre-Dame-des-Landes, near Nantes in France. The film shows two portraits; one of a place, the Defended Zone, i.e. 2000 hectares of forests and prairies, and one of a few activists with diverse profiles, but who all share on a daily basis an untypical political experience.
