Les grands débordements

Directed by Martin Bureau

Produced by Nathalie Cloutier

Human beings produce, consume and own more than their basic needs require. The excess share of production is consumed in the pursuit of leisure, luxury, beliefs, sex and war: This, in the words of Georges Bataille, is the accursed share. This accursed share will be revealed in a Canadian context.
