Life, a Long Way Away (0+)

France, 2011, colour, 81 min.
Director: Marc Weymuller
Barroso is an isolated region of Portugal where people live at the rhythm of the herds and the seasons. There, one can witness an ancestral way of life which will probably not last. Everyone knows it is the end of it soon and secretely draws the meshes of sparse memories. The memory resists, the setting serves as a mirror. In reminding us what we used to be, it also reflects what have become.
