This surreal drama is set in Sophia Antipolis, a hub of European innovation located on the lush banks of the French Riviera. But cutting-edge technology can’t sanitize a polluted mind, and the darkness of humanity lurks under the complex’s glossy surface. A teenage girl goes missing; a body is found burned; doctors perform plastic surgery on underage girls; a New Age cult recruits new members; a vigilante group hunts down immigrants by night. Shot on 35mm film by a singular auteur, Sophia Antipolis lays bare the depravity of humanity behind the glittering façade of modernity.
