Cassandra, a 26-years-old young girl, is a flight attendant for a low-cost airline. Based in Lanzarote, she’s always willing to take on extra hours and carries out her duties with robotic efficiency. On the side, she just goes with the flow and floats between Tinder, parties and lazy days. When she suddenly gets dismissed, she is forced to return home. Will Cassandre find the force to confront what she was running away from?

Rien à foutre (2021).


film director

Rien à foutre started from an image, in fact, from a double image. One day, I was sitting in the first row on a Ryanair flight, right across from the hostess. The moment we took off, I looked at her: she was obviously suffering because of something, as though she had been deeply wounded. It was very rough to watch. Then, when the fasten seat belts sign went off, the hostess released her seat belt and immediately – and this is the second image from which the film was born – put on an enormous smile and began to pull out the drinks cart and offer the passengers things to buy... The dichotomy of these two images, that moment of introspection and this professional agitation, was powerful and it generated a question: what did this young woman leave behind on the ground, before we took off?”
