For the first time, the partners in Next selected a duo, Victoire and Festus.The duo combines different disciplines in their work: music, video clips, documentary but also the first steps towards fiction have been taken.The stories they tell are about identity and origin, a different position in society. They are creators who appeal to a target group that is not necessarily reached by regular cinema releases.Their work is exciting, different and cross-disciplinary.
