THE END OF THE ROAD
A group of suburban teenage girls meet. They dream of the future and share both individual and collective memories, oscillating between boredom and panic in the highly-planned architecture of their environment. Trapped amongst the remains of an urban nightmare built on earnest but misguided community housing projects, they wonder: Are there still possibilities waiting at The End of the Road? Cécile Bally’s social critique uses Sitcom-strategies to examine visions of radical change at the peripheries of urban life and transports the audience into an imaginary space at the borders of the city.
