THE MEDIUM

 

A feature film project by Manu Laskar

Michael Monge is a young Medium, just like his mother who just died. As the sole heir to her gifts, he is encouraged by his sister to continue with her clients and communicate with the dead. But a new client will turn this career plan upside down: Alice, a young charismatic artist seized by the recent death of her companion. Struck by a mutual love at first sight, Michael and Alice will be forced to confront their ghosts to regain possession of their lives

With the support of Office Fédéral de la Culture, Region Nouvelle Aquitaine, Fondation Beaumarchais SACD and Emergence Programm
