THE BUBBLE

Valerie Blankenbyl 

PREMIÈRE CATALANA

SYNOPSIS

 

The Villages’ control and power over the region’s resources allows it to provide water and building space for its residents and maintain their luxurious lifestyles. 96 recreation centres, 54 golf courses, 70 swimming pools and some 3,000 social clubs are a catalytic mirror of the social imbalance and inequalities of race and opportunity that exist in the United States. Oblivious or not, the residents of the community live the twilight years of their surreal lives with all the amenities, while voting for Trump and quietly driving golf carts through identical landscaped streets and monotonous neighbourhoods.
