), the story follows hot on the heels of two young Parisians who have come to pay a friend a visit in a "zadist" (radical green activist) camp surrounded by riot police, at the centre of a community that extols the virtues of "living differently", adopting a way of life in which individualism, technology and gender distinctions have all been abolished...

Produced by Matthieu Tarot for Albertine Productions, La communauté is being co-produced by France 2 Cinéma and StudioCanal, which will also handle the distribution. The shoot took place entirely in Ardèche.
