Synopsis:
Between poetry and realism, the film recounts the daily life of André and Marie-Thérèse, 64 and 70 years of age, and that of their children and their animals of all species (hair and feathers). A motley crew who work hard, dance and laugh a lot, despite the impending closure of “Ferme de la Barrière” farm. This film is also the story of my enjoyable encounter with them, an encounter that involved mutual initiation : they taught me their ancestral know-how and my pictures gave them unexpected insight into their environment.
