Within the space of a sentence, the life of Olivier Goy changed entirely when he was told he only had 3 more years to live. From then on, Olivier intended to live his life to the fullest. As a spectator, we follow his new daily life as a committed entrepreneur passionate about technology, as a family man keen to preserve his cocoon, and as a patient with an incurable disease. The film also shows how the power of art (photography in this instance) can help deliver a message and raise awareness.
Invisible Summer aims to awaken consciousness and question the judgement of others and of ourselves, using disability and illness a pretext to speak to a wider audience about our tendency to undermine our own life due to misguided views on everyday problems.
Invisible Summer is clearly an ode to life and love. Nothing gloomy. Beauty, laughter, a few tears at times, but above all a furious desire to live.
