Le troisième volet d’Atomic Pictures réunit quatre voix d’artistes et joue avec leur valeur off et on dans un programme qui restitue l’état du monde selon différentes visions. Confrontés aux limites de leur propre création, les artistes y semblent pris dans un mouvement d’aller-retour insensé.
Ce constat d’échec semble pourtant paradoxalement réaffirmer toute la puissance de l’art là où il est question de désenchantement. 
C’est au beau milieu d’un univers se référant aux sciences, à l’art ou à la politique, que seule la voix de l’artiste semble résister aux déceptions représentées à l’écran.
Avec: Ian James, Jasmine Johnson, Francis Summers & Louisa Minkin et Mikolaj Tkasz
