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. This method of biodynamic agriculture is to think in complex agricultural organizations in the presence of animals and cultures, in total harmony nature.

Quebec, Canada. At the summer solstice, a group of young Aboriginals from the Innu and Huron nations and young Quebecers travels the Jesuits’ ancestral trail, 310 km of land and water which links Lac Saint-Jean and Quebec City. Some embark on this 21-day long adventure to follow their ancestors’ trail, others for a unique experience with nature or as a personal challenge. One thing is certain; from laughter to silence, with stories and moments of introspection, a simple encounter turns into a profound learning experience.

The lagoon of Mayotte is a cradle of hope : to build a future that will be environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
