Avant Première 2017 Sujet

The IMZ is proud to present "LA VOIX HUMAINE" as the official sujet for Avant Première Music + Media Market Berlin 2017.


An elegant young woman in her cluttered bedroom answers a phone call from her lover, who is about to leave her. In this final conversation, she attempts to win him back by going from tenderness to passion, from threats of her own suicide to calm, from regrets to fits of violence.
