Lunes Noires

A documentary film directed by Barbara VEY

In recent years, the issue of periods has been making increasing noise in both the public and political spheres. In the Jura, Diane, a young winegrower, makes wine using natural methods. In the course of seasons and the transformation of the vines, voices rise from the earth and tell stories about menstruation. Diane’s face, her gestures and her body make us live the elaboration of her wine, step by step. Lunes Noires proposes to open up and deconstruct a number of images and superstitions that for a long time have devalued the menstrual flow. What remains of the beliefs surrounding menstruation, what are those of the present, and what stories do menstruation tell about our society today?
