Safe Society

In the video, the key concepts of a new world of security are displayed within the time frame of a commercial advertisement. Low-fat butter, alcohol-free whiskey, non-lethal weapons. The right to be protected associated with the ban of putting oneself in danger thus opens the way to zero-risk. Indemnified disasters, limited responsibilities, de-alienated work. The video game images, which are often more dynamic and spectacular than their movie models, mix daily and extraordinary events. Caffeine-free coffee, guilt-free exploitation, casualty-free war. Safe Society, coming soon!
