Co-screenwritter and activist
What if we could protect our planet while encouraging new ways of living together? Support our impact campaign to help us give strength to this idea.
Environmental activists Thor, Hulk, Black Panther, Captain Anarchy and Batman illegally occupy the Mormont Hill in the French-speaking part of Swit- zerland. They create a utopian society while waging a peaceful struggle against the enemy, the cement industry Holcim.
Far from all social norms, the activists invent, create and reclaim an enchanted place that is disappear- ing. They are threatened when the police announce that they will soon be evacuated.
Zadvengers is an immersive experience in the heart of a committed community of young people with strong ideologies. A realistic and turbulent tale that follows these anonymous people in trying to un- derstand what they experienced there before the turmoil.
