Synopsis:

A powerful and moving portrait of the hard lives of French family farmers living and working in the Forez region of France—a subject matter reminiscent of the work of the Farm Security Administration.
Born and brought up in the area, Christophe Agou was inspired and moved by the authenticity and charisma of the people he encountered. He presents an intimate and touching portrait of their labor-intensive lives.

Christophe Agou came to prominence with his compelling body of work made in the New York subway—published as Life Below in 2004.
