Couleur du Moment takes place in a bleak, not-so-distant future where a commerce-driven virtual reality has taken precedence over lived experience. At Tactile Colour Group, a colour forecasting agency, workers still go about business despite having been replaced by algorithms that design new colours for the virtual world. A lingering, inhuman lens follows the remaining employees on what they don’t know will be their last day at work. Dean, the office manager daydreams about the glory days at the top of his game and reminisces about how things used to be. Other workers at the the drab and dated firm are oblivious to their impending obsolescence and go on fussing about menial chores. The camera takes a liking to Shane, who accidentally discovers an error in the virtual reality output early on. As Shane tries to solve the problem, she learns that there’s a lot more on the line than just her job.
