jardinCOUR #5

angels in america - olympique dramatique

The kaleidoscopic story of Angels in America, directed by Tom Dewispelaere and Stijn Van Opstal, is a complex portrait of a combative generation that acts counter to spirit of the era. The havoc caused by AIDS strengthens the ultraconservative forces in their fight against free love. In this merciless climate, we follow more than 20 characters played by eight actors, ranging from travel agents and lawyers to caregivers and ex-drag queens to divine interventions and religious minorities. With shocking scenes of power and hypocrisy, hilarious personalities, and intimate discussions about the fear of death and decline.
