    • Synopsis
    • Paris-Tehran. A rootless love story between Gecko, young and free, and Anahita, an Iranian in exile –
      tangled up in History and steeped in Internet. Anahita is obsessed by the current event in her country,
      and little by little their story is contaminated by History and its breathless mediatisation on the internet.
      June 2009: after the controversial election in Iran, the citizens take to the streets. The Islamic govern-
      ment, worries about the image conveyed, stops journalists from doing their work. The citizens starts
      collecting and broadcasting information through websites like YouTube. These brutal images reachs the
      world public directly. FLEURS DU MAL personalizes them. This young man, a bullet in his head, carried
      away by his friends could be one of yours… The Iranians also use Twitter to coordinate their protest: they
      short-circuit the Tehran power supply, organise massive traffi c jam… Internet is taking part of History and
      the fi lm. Anahita confronts herself with these images and looks for her beloved ones. With her, Gecko
      confronts his own history and together they start a new identity quest. The fi lm is born from the confron-
      tation of these two individuals moved by their will of freedom. FLEURS DU MAL rebels.
