Beneath our Feet Série-Collection : Primavera

Alexis Jacquand
2013 - 82 min - DV Cam - Couleur - France

With focused gestures and a worried face, Jean-Marie walks quickly. I follow him.
He experiences his work fervently, next to his ewes, with their resistance and their docility. From the sheepcot to the alpine pastures, a difficult trajectory with first times, gratifications and incertitudes. But with the assurance of a biodynamic farming practice which reassures himself, and where intangibles energies awake. Right beneath our feet.
In direct cinema, Alexis Jacquand observes the smallholding of a young sheep farmer who wishes to build up his business by respecting the principle of biodynamics. With trial and error and questioning, Jean-Marie and his acolytes, close to their flock, throw themselves into this rural adventure with the enthusiasm of believers and the uncertainty of novices.
