Today’s non-stop media saturation creates an absurd distortion and distance between our daily routine and current affairs.

Démontable explores this bizarre mélange of realities by throwing the two worlds together: war is waged on the kitchen table while a man drinks coffee. The world is on fire. Attack helicopters shred a newspaper while a dinner plate suffers a drone strike. The film offers a series of attempts to try and understand our world better by playing with its violent protagonists. The result is a playful rendering on the bizarre relationship between daily life and global news.
