An interactive fiction of a new kind, associating comics, animation and documentary archives, Apocalypse 10 Lives immerses the user in the First World War, following the stories of the ten characters-heroes. These ten lives, perspectives on those terrible years, experience the war, meet and meet anonymous or famous real people. They cover the conflict on all fronts and take us into the heart of rebellions and exoduses, to the sea, the countryside, the cities, the factories and the back rooms of the royal, industrial and political powers.
Combining history and fiction, the exhibition Apocalypse–10 Lives allows us to glimpse into the mysteries of the production of the interactive comic of the same name conceived by Pascale Ysebaert and Vincent Borel, illustrated by Leeroy Vanilla and with music by Malvina Meinier. This project follows on from the documentary series Apocalypse la 1ère Guerre mondiale, written and directed by Isabelle Clarke and Daniel Costelle, and broadcast on France 2 in spring 2014.
The exhibition presents tables, video and facsimiles to enable the public to discover the production process that uses drawings and documentary archives, and to understand, through the emotions and sensations inspired by the drawings, the consequences of war and its effect on people’s lives.
An exhibition conceived and produced by Idéacom International (Canada) and CC&C (France), in collaboration with the Canadian Cultural Centre.
This exhibition has received the Mission du Centenaire 14-18 label
