O.V in English subtitled in Spanish
French director Nicolas Peduzzi, who has previously captivated audiences with his particular view of the United States and its people in Southern Belle, now takes us to Houston, Texas, which is under the threat of a hurricane. An ultra-conservative battlefield, inhabited by a very peculiar wildlife whose intersecting lives Peduzzi captures in a hypnotic and apocalyptic film that moves to the rhythm of music, from rap to folk. Among them are the rapper OMB Bloodbath, an expansionist who hides behind the death of a close friend, and William, from a wealthy background who has fallen into the streets because of his fondness for drugs. This film premiered at Cannes and was awarded at FIDMarseille.
