Le Sentiment géographique

A documentary film directed by Jean-Baptiste Perret

In this film I am interested in a close friend and his environment: Pierre-Jean, a 36-year-old carpenter living in the landlocked territory of the Haut-Allier’s gorges. With others, he lives in a caravan around an old industrial henhouse that they have converted into workshops and living quarters. This collective place that they call “the henhouse” has created meetings between people who have come to live in the area and those who are passing through. With this film, I hope that we will hear about physical geography, political choices, rural solitude, village life, ecology, but also love.
