LIFE ON EARTH

Olivier Babinet
This music video was written to accompany a song by Tomorrow’s World. Filmed in slow motion at Claude Debussy Junior High School in Paris, with lingering, intimate close-ups on its subjects, Babinet’s video captures the excitement, weirdness, and occasional weightlessness of navigating adolescence. Olivier Babinet wrote and directed his first short film, C’est plutôt genre Johnny Walker in 2008. His first feature film, Robert Mitchum est Mort was shown at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival. The film won the Grand Prize at the Premiers Plans Angers festival and was nominated for best first film at the Raindance London Festival.
