Eat Bugs, Climb in VR With Villanueva and Friends

Drink in the dystopia with Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Nico Favresse, and friends as they forage for scant resources in this wacky, Petzl-produced film.

It’s tough to admit the possibility that the apocalypse is indeed approaching and stay positive at the same time.

If anybody can do it, it’s musical big-waller Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll and his cohort of colorful climber comrades. Petzl’s “Consequences” finds him, Nico Favresse, Charlotte Durif, and Cedric Lachat in top form — regardless of the state of the near-future dystopia their characters inhabit.

I will defer the job of determining whether “Consequences” is more parts caution or more parts caper. But whether or not you think the world’s first tick mark triggered a butterfly effect that will kill it, it’s pretty fun to watch Favresse actually eat a bug.

At least, more fun than doing it for survival would be.
