CASABLANCA RUN THE COVID




Casablanca Run the Covid is a techno-poem for the eyes and the ears. A lonely scooter travels through the deserted streets of Casablanca during a Covid-19 lockdown in 2020. Filmed vertically by a 360 ° cam, this piece takes us through an anamorphic crossing of a ghost town, emptied of life. Casablanca becomes an empty planet, bristling with moving protuberances and dancing architecture, moving to the rhythm of the race. Casablanca, an urban virus, is crowned with palm trees, candelabras, towers, bell towers and minarets. The city unrolls and curves, tattooed with flowing graphics and is bathed in an iridescent amniotic space of obscure light.
