According to official polls, 69,159 were killed, 374,141 were seriously injured and 17,469 are still considered to be missing. The filmmaker’s parents, central characters in the film, are survivors.

_*Storyteller*_* (Nicolas Provost | Brussels, Belgium | 8 min.)*
In Storyteller, Provost recomposes the Las Vegas strip into a slick artificiality reminiscent of science fiction.

He manipulates time, codes and form, twisting and shaping an experimental sensation that tightly bind visual art and cinematography.
