Charcoal-Makers by Colette Piault( Visual )

9 editions published between 1203 and 2014 in Greek, Modern and English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A strange landscape in the middle of the Greek mountains. The silhouettes of furnaces emerge from the hazy and smoke-dappled light. Charcoal-makers, who come sometimes from distant places with their families, are burning wood to make charcoal. They rent their services out to contractors during the five or six summer months. Verging on the poetic, the film describes the difficult and archaic process of charcoal-making in a modern world
The Fenland (Le Brouck) by Colette Piault( Visual )

The Fenland was devised and shot in close collaboration with a group of eight local fenlanders, young men and women who live and work as market gardeners in the area of Saint Omer, Northern France.

Return to the Brouck: The Fenland, 40 years On( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in Undetermined and French and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Return to the Brouck (Retour au Brouck) (color, 55 min, 2011, 16:9 anamorphic) Set in the natural environment of northern France, criss-crossed with water ways, market gardening as well as breeding remain the only productive activities. Nevertheless, the number of fenlanders has seriously diminished from 200 farms in the 1970 to 40 in 2010. Other elements are now intervening such as ecology, preservation and development like the Natural Regional Park and the Romelaere Natural Reserve, or leisure activities like waterfowl hunting, fishing and tourism. Through images and words Return to the Brouck expresses this new reality, confronting the actors of the past - young fenlanders of the 70s - with the present. Juxtaposing the images of the past with those of 2010. The core of the film still remains, as in the 70s, the vivid problem of the present and the future of the Audomarois Fenland and its inhabitants. Filmmaker: Colette Piault

Ma famille et moi by Colette Piault( Visual )

2 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in Greek, Modern and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poursuivant l'étude des effets de la migration sur un village de montagne grec en Epire, ce film évoque un aspect spécifique de la migration : les relations familiales.Tanassaki, âgé de 13 ans, vit avec ses grands-parents, Chrystos et Sofia, dans le village grec, tandis que ses parents, Thodoros et Vassiliki, vivent à Zurich avec son petit frère, Chrystaki. Le film a été tourné sur trois périodes : l'hiver au village, l'été également au village quand les parents, comme la plupart des migrants, reviennent pour les vacances et Noël, à Zurich, où nous avons invité Tanassaki et son grand-père à venir voir leur famille. C'est une tentative pour comprendre les relations entre le jeune garçon, ses grands-parents et ses parents, non par le moyen d'interviews mais, en suivant et en filmant des moments de la vie quotidienne pour saisir l'atmosphère affective familiale. Bien que le film, racontant en quelque sorte une histoire, apparaisse quelquefois comme une fiction, rien n'a été joué, ni demandé pour les besoins du tournage." [Source : www.lesfilmsduquotidien.fr]

Ce n'est pas tous les jours fête by Colette Piault( Visual )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in Greek, Modern and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dans un village de la montagne grecque en Epire, on assiste comme dans la plupart des villages méditerranéens à un important dépeuplement. Comment est vécue cette situation par les villageois ? Si en apparence, le village semble vivre en quasi-autarcie, en fait sa vie économique aussi bien que sa vie sociale et familiale est étroitement dépendante du monde extérieur. Le film se propose de montrer, par une approche observationnelle et une construction en séquences, l'alternance entre la monotonie de la vie quotidienne et les jours de fête qui voient le retour, pour de brèves périodes, des membres de la famille émigrés en ville ou à l'étranger. On en parle avant, on en parle après, et on attend..." (Source : www.lesfilmsduquotidien.fr)

Return to the Brouck = Retour au Brouck : the Audomarois Fenland, 40 years on : le marais audomarois, 40 ans plus tard ; The Fenland by Colette Piault( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indiqué sur la jaquette : In 1970 filmmaker Colette Piault traveled to the Saint Omer area of Northern France to document a particular moment of recognition for the young people who lived and worked as market gardeners in the Audomarois Fenland. Devised and shot in close collaboration with this group of eight local fenlanders, the resulting film is a meditation on the hard, practical questions the emrging generation must ask themselves about the social and economic problems facing the unique form of agriculture they have inherited. 40 years later Return to Brouck revisits the fenlanders of Saint Omer. Market gardening and breeding remain the primary pursuits of the group, but much has changed in this land crisscrossed with water ways. By 2010 the number of farms has diminished from 200 to 40, and what was once a closed community is now permeable to scores od outsiders drawn to the region by waterfowl hunting, fishing and tourism. Grappeling with ecology, preservation and development as the new and pressing concerns of day, the aging farmers yet again must face the uncertain future of their niche within the Fenland
