Guillaume Cayet

Jeune mort is the story of a recruitment. The story of a broken youth who only comes alive amid the far right. Jeune mort is an alarm call.

Jeune mort is a violent, raw story.
The story of a disruption. The story of a broken youth who only comes alive amid the far right. The story of a young man newly employed as a municipal gardener in a formerly industrialised town, and who meets Frédo, a colleague he becomes friends with. What he doesn’t know yet is that Frédo is a political activist and a committed member of the French far right. And when, in the summer camp where his wife works, the creation of a refugee centre is announced, everything starts spinning out of control. 

With Jeune mort, Guillaume Cayet continues his work at the border between politics and poetics. Here, it unfolds in a very intimate way, as a live radio presentation, accompanied by musical composer Karam Al Zouhir and sound designer Antoine Briot; a way to bring words and imagination as close to the listeners as possible.
