“The Latest Vampire” is a lonely being, thirsty to find a prey. As the spectator accompanies him through his hunt, he falls with affection for this unconventional and extremely familiar creature to which, he finally identifies. “The Latest Vampire” could be you me or anyone… Intimidation, continuous interrogation, victimization or pure indifference have a common motive: “Stealing energy”. This short film invites you to look within and identify which patterns you use unconsciously to dominate and steal energy from others, as we all do! At a larger scale, these patterns reflect the world’s dynamics. Many wars and political and social conflicts are driven by the desire to acquire more water, more gas, more land: More energy.
