Apocalypse Delight is the name of a german-french director's duo made of Franziska Ungerand Camille Tricaud.
Apocalypse Delight is also a Film Production Company created in 2019 and based in Munich, Germany.
Camille Tricaud’s and Franziska Unger’s common work focuses about climate change, consumption, media and advertisement.
They challenge and deconstruct the images they are confronted with in the media world.
About their style - they like to think like Wittgensteins: Humor is the only way to ask the deepest and essential questions of life.
Camille Tricaud and Franziska Unger met in 2018 in Munich. They came from different backgrounds: one, French, trained in
documentary and experimental film, the other, German, trained in architecture and visual arts. But they had a lot in common.
They started working together on the video "Apocalypse Airlines", exploring in a satirical way the relationship between climate
crisis, capitalism and marketing. This short film won several awards around the world, including the "Short Tiger Award" at the
2020 Cannes Film Festival. They continue their work together, kind of fascinated by the links between consumerism and bad
conscience, global warming and individualism, hedonism and marketing. They themselves feel caught in a contradiction and are
looking for a visual form to respond to it.
They both see current climate change as one of the most important crises and both see the medium of film as a way to provoke
reflection and awareness. However, they reject a moral discourse and seek to create 'reflective films' rather than 'indictment films'.
