La Goddam Voie Lactée / MAYDAY Mélanie Demers La Goddam Voie Lactée /MAYDAY – Mélanie Demers – the premiere on 3rd of June, during Festival TransAmériques! https://fta.ca/en/show/la-goddam-voie-lactee/ An aesthetic little Big Bang, La Goddam Voie Lactée is an exercise in self-imagination, a means of finding our bearings in this imperfect and infinite world which is our common belonging and inheritance.
So, we’ve come to terms with soldiering on through this disgusting mess, in spite of everything. For not finishing means not perishing. We’re charting a course through the snow, through the mud, through the shit. With the wind in our face. We’re doing it together. And losing hope together is the first step towards beginning to hope again.
