Fernand-Philippe Morin-Vargas was born in Ham-Nord, Quebec and currently lives in Montreal. His short film Noeud Papillon was screened in 30 festivals and was awarded with numerous prizes and distinctions. Condominium is his latest film.
Synopsis: Isolated in their apartment, a family find refuge in manufactured happiness.
Condominium buildings seem rather strange to me. Many people live “under the same roof” but have no contact with one another. I chose this setting because it recalls the fact that isolation is growing. The more we isolate ourselves, the less we communicate. As a consequence are increasingly sensitive to everything consumer society attempts to sell us through its many different screens. It has a perverse effect, and we don’t even realize it.
