Lucie and Rio embark on a live “urbex”, entering the Paris’s abandoned underground network. The two teenagers share their adventure live on social media.
A pair of young lawyers are on a metro platform, on their way to meet some friends. They film each other as they wait for the train.
A couple say goodbye on the street. As he heads into the subway on his way to work, she goes to meet a friend for the evening.
Behind her, a journalist starts doing a live broadcast. They don’t yet know it, but in a few moments their fates will be bound by a terrorist attack that will change their lives. In a matter of seconds, they will enter into darkness.
Republique is deployed through three video streams running in the same time unit.
By moving from one live to the other, the viewer reveals the three stories of a choral film.
Brutality of the live feed, comments from the followers, loss of signal: the spectator is plunged into the heart of the multiple and sprawling flows of information that invade our realities on the evenings of the attack.
