            A New World

            Release date : 07/03/2019
            The stories of thirteen people all searching for direction and trying to find their place in a world disconnected by new forms of technology. A literary equivalent to the successful TV series Black Mirror and a warning against the most nightmarish tendencies of our time.
            In future we believe! Such is the name and philosophy of their start-up. They are a dozen young, solid, dynamic collaborators grouped around Pandora, their benevolent “Happiness Manager.” In this perfect microcosm, they speak a globalized English and wholeheartedly believe in the sharing economy and collaborative society. So why are... In future we believe! Such is the name and philosophy of their start-up. They are a dozen young, solid, dynamic collaborators grouped around Pandora, their benevolent “Happiness Manager.” In this perfect microcosm, they speak a globalized English and wholeheartedly believe in the sharing economy and collaborative society. So why are they all so unhappy? Farid spends his nights writing psychological support emails to Netflix glitches. Esther goes off to a temple in Korea in search of her “real me.” Gaspard falls in love with a tree. Saphir stopped existing ever since she sold her selfie’s reflection. And Areski, an incorrigible tracker of fake news, thinks they’ve all lost their bearings. Pandora may well repaint their office walls pink, buy them a ping-pong table or suggest a karaoke night, but they’ll need more to rekindle even a little bit of hope…
            Told in the manner of the atomized society it denounces, A New World is made up of micro-fictions that form a vast choral novel, a round in which each character passes the baton on to the next. With lots of humor, Anne Akrich probes the secret thoughts of these dysfunctional individuals, which can only be linked by the most basic connections, revealing a glaring solitude. She draws us into this troubling and strange world and presents a brilliant social anticipation and a ferocious satire of business culture.
