In a society close to our own, where the importance of nature is perceived differently, Chrome and the “Earth Brigade” attempt to maintain order inside the zone for which they are responsible.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Florent Agostini was born in Beaumont in the Puy-De-Dome and received his baccalaureate in 2010 at Clermont-Ferrand. Having explored small amateur film projects since a young age, he goes off to ESEC to study cinema as soon as he turns 18.

He then decides to leave university after his first theoretical year in order to work on a telefilm, “Les Anonymes”, directed by Pierre Schoeller. By luck, he obtains the position of broadcast technician for the television channel BFM TV, which allows him to forge his outlook onto the wider world.

Florent Agostini creates in 2015 the Label SIMILAR MIND, the name under which he kick-starts the writing of his first short film, SIMILAIRES.

Attached to his Auvergnan roots, he decides to shoot the entirety of this ecological social satire in an environment that saw him blossom from a child to a man, surrounded by family and childhood friends. After a lonely 9-month combat of writing and organization, the filming took place in the heart of the Vallée du Sancy, where everybody was given the right to participate.

The film SIMILAIRES then became a local project conveying a truly universal message.
