Further Proof The French Are Crazy: Renault Zoe Stars In French Short Film – La Fée Electricité

4 years ago by Jay Cole 5

Had Renault not been a sponsor of this year’s ASVOFF Film Festival – which is a festival about fashion films (shout out to Wikipedia for that tidbit of knowledge), we would never have known there was a short film about the Renault’s best selling, all-electric Zoe.

This Is As "Normal" As It Gets For The Renault Zoe

This Is As “Normal” As It Gets For The Renault Zoe

We imagine if Renault knew what Marcus Tomlinson’s set out to capture with the Zoe as a feature player, they might have rethought that partnership.

The short 2 minute fashion film is entitled “La Fée Electricité.” And thanks to my own Canadian origins I can confidently translate that to mean “The Electricity Fairy.”

Although after watching the short, it feels to us like the Electricity Fairy met the director of the Predator series of movies and thought they were kinda cool.  Watch if you dare!

Here is Renault’s take on the festival and film:

ASVOFF, short for A Shaded View of Fashion Film, is a globe-trotting event stopping off in 15 major world cities. In mid-October, coinciding with Paris Fashion Week, the sixth edition of the festival set up shop in the Georges Pompidou Centre, with more than 60 short films and a dozen documentaries in competition.

One of the films, La Fée Electricité by Marcus Tomlinson, shows ZOE in an artistic light, offering a visual take on the electric and technological revolution.

    Beside the Design und usability the rental battery was one of my strongest buying decision for ZOE 🙂

    Besides that I love charging ZOE@Home with AC-22kw, wich is also widely availably in public.
    When Sun shines, I charge with AC-11kw which is my Photovoltaics-Output, so 100% Solar charge is possible even in northern Germany.

    I..think the movie maker liked the Zoe? It’s quite trippy and psychedelic, but also quite neat.
