“Five childhood friends reunite for the first time after the death of their comrade Pedro, an unconditional Shrek fan. An important mission is entrusted to them: to honor the memory of the deceased by scattering his ashes at Shrekfest, a festival in honor of the green ogre in Wisconsin, in the United States.”Here is the absurd pitch of Shrek Life, the long future – footage from Le Grabuge, a collective of filmmakers adept at nimp and absolute nonsense. Among their main feats of arms: a short film on the Cauet Burger or a post-modern tale about a strange son who can only say “dad” and only eats Cacoulac. After ten years of existence on the Internet, they think bigger and embark on the production of their first feature, a mockumentary on Shrekfest, a gathering of fans of the very real green ogre which is held every year not far from Chicago. Xavier Étienne (the sociopath), Martin Grouten (the unconditional fan of Asterix), Julien Kroustos (the lost heir), Jacques “Jaco Bimbimbap” Delarue (the retarded teenager) and Djeustine Smith (the mythomaniac hippie) will therefore s embark on a crazy road trip in the heart of Wisconsin. To realize their American dream, Le Grabuge must collect 10,000 euros. So if you want this even better buddy movie on psychotropics than those of the Farrelly brothers to see the light of day, this is the kichta. Depending on your generosity, you could receive an autographed poster, a piece composed in your honor or even a short film about your life made in Mayhem.
