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.

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". By observing their lifestyle, their humanity and their struggle, one is faced with a puzzling reflection of the outside world: our world. With the return of spring, they all go back to the road and fade away into loneliness.
"They" have chosen to renegotiate the "system". Reduce the global society of men to their humble community. To reinvent the structure and bonds between them. Focus on quality over quantity, to feed on the fruit of their labor, to rebuild a society of proximity, which respects nature.
