Filmmaker Jaco van Dormael and Choreographer Michèle Anne De Mey make a film come alive before your eyes. A plane trip, a forest in the fog, seven sudden deaths.

When they take their last breath, the characters expect to see their lives flash before their very eyes. But that's not what's happening. Only one unexpected image remains. Soft, vanilla-scented skin, the sound of a sheep being sheared, the smell of freshly cut grass in summer.
The company Kiss & Cry once again creates a cinematographic film set on a stage, where small worlds are filmed live, animated by visible technicians. Cold Blood takes you to the back of the set, which reveals a world where the illusion can be seen unhindered. An optical game that is reminiscent of the wonders of our childhood.
