Return to the Brouck, The Fenland, Forty Years on

Synopsis
In 1970, documentary filmmaker Colette Piault and her colleagues produced a film on the lives of a group of young people living in the Brouck (the Audomarois Fenland) area of Northern France. Forty years later, this new film revisits the locations and participants of the original documentary, revealing the tensions between economic and ecological concerns which the inhabitants of the Brouck must negotiate in order to secure a future for their region.
