Cake : isn’t it a symbol of society's abundance? What does the man and woman on the street think of this idea? If a cake is placed on the sidewalk of a busy street, how will the crowd respond? Images show children and adults eating cake on the street; different scenes entertain opposing viewpoints. Footage is accompanied by background commentary addressing poverty, society's over-consumption, the third world and war. This video was made in collaboration with Louis-Philippe Hébert.
