Wine : The Green Revolution
(82 min + 2 hours of Bonus)
From the vineyard to the corking of the bottle, making wine is a craft in which each detail counts. The world of wine has experienced early the sensation of losing contact with the earth. To get the best from the grapes, winemakers increasingly apply the practices of biodynamics.

An emergency accommodation centre for homeless people, located in the suburbs of Paris. Here, a dozen men, coming from all walks of life, isolated and left out by society, are spending winter in a small temporary community. I call them "The Hermits".
