Time of the Gifts

  • France
Audio Tracks 

A documentary investigation of the world of French agriculture today, through various testimonials: farmers, researchers, government employees, writers. A world that manages to resist the upheavals that it faces, economic, scientific, social, and which continues, for better or for worse, to maintain the link between generations. A world at the centre of major questions about the future.
