“Pays Sans Visage” refers to the forbidden zone, a devastated, apocalyptic territory, hostile to human existence, emptied of its inhabitants. “Pays Sans Visage” is the country where we wear masks to breathe stale air, the country where the faces of irradiated children are no more than forbidden and expressionless faces.
