In this special edition of Cinémoi Goes to Venice 2017 our correspondent Julien Plante covers the premiere of Alexander Payne’s sci-fi comedy, Downsizing. The film stars Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Kristen Wiig.

Downsizing follows the adventures of Paul Safranek (Matt Damon), an everyman from Omaha who, along with his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig), dreams of a better life. As the world faces an overpopulation crisis, scientists develop a radical solution that can shrink humans to five inches tall. People soon discover how much further money goes in a smaller world, and with the promise of a lavish lifestyle beyond their wildest imaginations, Paul and Audrey decide to risk the controversial procedure and embark upon an adventure that will change their lives forever.

Don’t miss the red carpet, interviews and more of the Downsizing opening on “Cinémoi Goes To Venice 2017” Premiering Sunday, September 10th!
