Film charts year in life of upper dale farm family
French filmmaker Magali Pettier has covered a wide range of subjects, from women’s experiences as sex workers to migrant workers in Singapore.
Her latest project documented a year in the life on a remote hill farm and showed that agricultural life was very different in France.
“The film reveals the realities of family life as the farmers struggle to make ends meet.
“But these are determined people ready to overcome all the obstacles put before them in order to carry on with the work and lifestyle they love.” she said.
Magali Pettier is a filmmaker and a photographer who works mainly in the social arena exploring issues from homelessness through to migration. As well as working on commissions, Magali works on participatory projects with socially excluded groups.
