"It was at the beginning of Reunion’s own television channel, and there was no limit to what we could hope for. Camille Sudre was launching Télé-Freedom, "local" advertising was being invented, the departemental council created a television studio, and many people were buying televisions. We’d participated in the first televised advertisement in Creole : "Voisins i veille anou" (’Our neighbours are watching us’), which was extremely successful. Then we started with local fiction. I wrote a series, Les Flamboyants, about the tribulations of a group of young cool Reunionese. We shot two episodes with the production company Rivic : ’Kari-Poulé’ and ’La Comète’. In the episodes you could see the ’Le Circus’ nightclub, "Marcel ", Lolo Kichenin, Thierry Jardinot… Like a lot of people, we couldn’t find a producer. We also participated in the Jean-Marc Desrosiers’ film "Les Blancs des Hauts", which was broadcast on the French TV channel FR3 and awarded prizes in mainland France. » [E. Genvrin]

The screenplay

The Flamboyants are the four tenants of a picturesque Creole villa with a view over a tropical town. Of different origins, there’s Debbie, journalist at the Etoile de la Réunion newspaper; her boyfriend Max, new age artist-painter and teacher in a junior high school (his car, a brightly painted Mehari is known all over the island), Carlos is the star photographer of the Etoile newspaper, and his sister Miracle, a young social worker. They’re young, lively, and full of fun. They have lots of adventures ...
