About the project
Poetical Thriller. Did you ever spin the globe, close your eyes and put your finger on it?
An english girl who can read minds revisits her childhood doctor in France to reclaim something that he took from her.
Faro defeats an old man in a clandestine contest of "Wiphala", a game involving a new form of communication known simply as "le voyage". He is then challenged by Marius who suspects Faro of cheating. Sometime later Nattie, a girl who can read minds, and her brother visit a special clinic in France to meet her childhood doctor and to reclaim a small globe that he took from her when she was little. Reunited with her globe Nattie rediscovers her ability to "voyage" but, despite help from others at the clinic, her fear of the dark remains; a mysterious couple with a connection to Faro, Marius and an unsolved murder are watching her every move.

Globe is a 2 hours feature film project. It is a mixture of realistic science fiction and psychological thriller, on a background of game and travel. The story takes place mostly at night in Nantes.
The film will be entirely shot with several Canon 5D Mark II to get beautiful images in low light conditions at a reasonable price.
The film is ambitious and very aesthetic, a humble mixture inspired by various references : the Sixth Sense, the Karate Kid, Reservoir Dogs, the Matrix, but in the real world, at night, without special effects and without fighting scenes...
Both french and english are used... French because the story takes place in Nantes, and english because the main character only speaks english. There will be english subtitles when necessary.
The film's characters have a unique culture, they are usually attached to small objects that may seem insignificant, and they are very tactile. Some people wear a blindfold on the front, and even sometimes a tattoo with color dots.
Nattie, the main character
Nattie is a young english lady who just arrived in France to learn how to control a strange ability that she has since her early childhood. Since her arrival, she has attracted the attention of mysterious individuals. Unfortunately, she was highly anticipated and the consequences of her coming will be unexpected.
