"Over here the day doesn't start over every day"
@ Vault Festival, London - February 2016
LES FOULES drill to the bottom of our outlandish orders of exploration and laws of extraction in a kicked-up Western gone North.
Alaska, 66° north, or just shy of it. Childhood buddies Brett and Kathy confront a fissured friendship at the fossil-fuel frontier of the Arctic. From crass commie yarns to company spin, god-giving missions to perished prospectors, whale oil to petroleum, Brett heads northwards, where myths, money, and politics crackle and spit in a fuel doused arctic dream. An intimate portrayal of friendship and camaraderie opens out onto a narrative expanse of arctically proportioned disorientation and division.
