Brouck, Le

Synopsis
Looks at a precise moment of consciousness of socio-economic agricultural problems faced by eight young fenlanders from Saint-Omer, Pas de Calais, a moment when French farmers were tempted to replace co-operative structures with individual operations making little profit and takes into account the contradictory positions. Shows the fenland and its traditional life and then production - the practice and organisation of work - and commercialisation. The young people talk about the future of the fenlands, agricultural union activities and possible options. The sound track comprises mainly the young peoples’ discussions.
