“Hypocentre” a haunting short film imagines a Paris without Parisians, and a world in the throws of some vague environmental disaster


Claire & Max, a French world-traveller and a Geographer, chart the streets of Paris as empty urban space, devoid of people … apparently emptied by some ominous disaster only hinted at.

Visit the filmmaker’s website, linked here, for more information on motives and techniques.

On their site the filmmakers cite Ross Ching’s “Running on Empty” as inspiration. We take the opportunity to post Ross Ching’s “Revisited” “Running on Empty.”
