Teaser to a documentary I'm making about my village in the south of France. An essay on its memory and an exploration of the peri-urban development of ancestral farmlands (a story that plays across many parts of the country). 'Un village entre la tramontane et le marin' means the village is located in a dynamic climatic zone, at the foothills of the Pyrenees and close to the Mediterranean, a region swept by many winds, the main ones being the 'tramontane', which comes in cold gusts from the mountains, the other the 'marin', a humid and muggy wind from the sea. A village living between a modernity that has permanently changed its way of life and ancient traditions of solidarity and mutual help. Our narrator is one of the last original farmers living there: "yes we had problems before, but now we create them."
