A Canal+ mini-Featurette on Arès


A few months ago, we were jumping up and down on top of the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Chongqing , flying from rooftop to rooftop to collect plates that will help build Jean Bénès’ vision of a futuristic Paris (ok, in the near Future, France is in a very bad shape) for his new feature film “Arès”.

We found this short “on set video” shot at Paris studios which reveals a bit more about the Arès’ atmosphere. Jean-Patrick Bénès talks (in French) about the film, that he describes as a Urban Western, and the excitement to shoot a sci-fi movie, a genre that has so far rarely been produced in France.
