Documentarist Raymond Depardon travels through provincial France in a camper, gathering conversations with people from all walks of life.

France (Les Habitants)

"I am going to drive through France, from the north to the south. I plan to stop in front of homes, places of business, municipal buildings.

I am going to meet the people of France, to listen to what they have to say. I won’t ask questions. I’ll let them take their time, gather their thoughts and talk as they will. I will invite people I have only just met into a mobile studio to talk, without constraints, with absolute freedom."Raymond Depardon

After JOURNAL DE FRANCE, legendary filmmaker-photographer Raymond Depardon delivers a unique picture of France today. Tender, moving, powerful—a film that will reveal the country’s intimate side.

“An affectionately realistic portrait of a France we seldom see.” The Hollywood Reporter
