The Red Button

Le bouton rouge

Directed by Marc-Olivier Picron
Belgium, 1998


A man is put in a cell in which there is a monolith surmounted by a red button. The prisoner looks at it continuously. What is the use of this button? Is it dangerous to push it? Or, on the contrary, is it the way to freedom?
