Synopsis:
Classified as World Heritage Sites, the four hydraulic boat lifts on the Canal du Centre are the only ones still operating with 19th-century techniques. This documentary plunges the viewer into the little-known world of the canal’s lift operators, through a story that sets past and future face to face. “In general, people are interested only in the structure. We’re just part of the background.”
