Between dreamlike fiction and factual reality, Dimanche paints a witty and tender portrait of humanity surprised by the uncontrollable forces of nature. 

A family is about to spend their Sunday together, a family tradition. But the walls are shaking and the storm has only just begun. Amidst this climatic chaos, the protagonists absurdly attempt to maintain a normal family life. Meanwhile, three wildlife reporters are doing their best to document Earth’s last living species.

Using physical theatre, puppetry, video, and ingenious practical effects, Dimanche observes the ingenuity and stubbornness of humans as they try to preserve their day-to-day habits, despite the chaos of an ecological collapse. 

The Draw

★★★★★

“Real magic happens here. The kind to make you gasp; the kind to make that ‘feeling box’ inside your chest expand outwards with such intensity, it hurts.”
