Country Profiles: Modern Life (Profils Paysans: La Vie Moderne)

United States Premiere For ten years, as part of the last episode of his triptych Country Profiles, the French director Raymond Depardon filmed mountain agricultural life. Through interviews, he creates a testament to the evolution of rural life, while paying homage to the world of his own childhood. In his own words:  “In many ways, notably ecological, they are in advance over city-dwellers. They preserve the planet, but we don’t know it as no one is interested in them anymore… And, without any doubt, they’ll hold out longer than us. This film is resolutely turned to the future.” It is an insightful look into today’s French agricultural life. Directed by Raymond Depardon

Introduced by Roland Celette, Cultural Attaché, Embassy of France.
