Watch 400 MPH: See a Chimpanzee Race Towards the Sun
A monkey, obsessed with speeding, sets out to achieve what no human has accomplished: breaking the 400 Mph speed limit of a land vehicle.
Co-directed by a team of Masters in Digital Directing (Paul-Eugène Dannaud, Julia Chaix, Lorraine Desserre, Alice Lefort, Natacha Pianeti, Quentin Tireloque), 400 MPH, a graduate work of France’s esteemed Rubika school, is an impressive calling card that articulates a wordless comment on our constant need to achieve 'more' without ever finding contentment in life.
