Alain Bidard
José R. Nerain

In 2100, the empire of Mortemonde colonized almost all the nations of the Earth and reduced their populations to slavery. Every slave is forced to collect 1000XP every month in Battledream, a video game where they can die for real. Only those who succeed are granted the right to live until the following month. Syanna, a young martinican slave, refuses to keep living in this condition and decides to fight for her freedom.

Alain Bidard is an animation film director who was nominated in many festivals including the prestigious Imagina festival in Monaco for his first animation film, “Pixies”. Then, he entered Cannes Festival and won the Best Film Award in the Cinema Meetings of CMAC in 2006, along with the Best director Award in FEMI in 2007 for his film “Opale”. In 2010, he started working on his first animated feature film, Battledream Chronicle.
