Written by Antoine Chevrollier, Bérénice Bocquillon and Faïza Guène, the story revolves around Willy who has been engulfed in anger since his father’s death and who spends his time with his group of friends in at La Pampa, a motocross track where his best friend Jojo is training for the French championship. Both of them dream of being elsewhere… Until the day everything falls apart around them.

Block Pass is produced by Nicolas Blanc on behalf of Agat Films & Cie and is pre-purchased by OCS and Disney +. Supported by way of an advance on receipts from the CNC, the feature film is further backed by the Pays-de-Loire region and the SOFICA companies Cinéaxe, Cofimage, SG Image and La Banque Postale Image, with the movie’s music composed by Evgueni and Sacha Galperine. Its distribution in French cinemas is entrusted to Tandem.

The first feature film directed by actress Céline Sallette, Niki, is set to be unveiled in the Un Certain Regard line-up. Written by the neo-filmmaker, the story charts the fictional artistic trajectory of famous personality Niki de Saint Phalle, played by Charlotte Le Bon (nominated for 2015’s Best Supporting Role César via Yves Saint Laurent [+leggi anche:
