Le Concierge (The Caretaker)
A MAN IN UNIFORM APPEARS AT THE END OF THE CORRIDOR. Follow him and discover the astonishing nightly journey of a janitor as he goes from classroom to classroom and through the hidden corners of a school. Leap into an immersive, wordless experience where reality turns into a dream. Through its examination of what it means to be part of today’s working class, Le Concierge (The Caretaker) paints a touching portrait of a lonely character whose work is too often taken for granted.
