French agriculture manages to resist the upheavals that it faces—economic, scientific, social—and continues, for better or for worse, to maintain the link between generations. Farmers, researchers, government employees, writers discuss a world at the center of major questions about the future.
Through interviews and first-hand accounts from farmers, French director Dominique Marchais exhaustively analyses the complexities of the national agricultural industry. This impressive sociological study offers startling new insights into the politics that profoundly shape agricultural work.
