At the time of the first confinement, the writer-director Pierre-Etienne Vilbert saw the need to question the state of our democracies, our freedoms, our relationships with each other. From this was born GLOBAL 404. An audio fiction that brings together 14 actors for nearly 3 hours of storytelling in 12 episodes. A season 02 is planned.
In this dystopia, as the confinements progress, a "surveillance society" is insidiously put in place. Our hero, Gregoire Python, nicknamed Py, will seek against all odds to restore the hidden truth, both in his personal life and on the scale of humanity. Py is a seasoned hacker. After many months of work to create Syann, an Artificial Intelligence with autonomous mind, this one finally comes "to life". It turns his life upside down and puts him in the sights of a formidable adversary.
Full of humour and hope, the story of GLOBAL 404 raises questions about the importance of reconnecting with a true spirit of brotherhood. The only way out for building a society that is more fair and more liveable, respecting the freedom of the individual.
