The land of utility

A film by Sophie Bruneau and Marc-Antoine Roudil

A territory : the Auvergne
A thread that runs from Vercingetorix to the advent of globalisation.
A character who is a former communist named Pierre Juquin.
Some meetings with people who think and act.
Some situations that evoke the Republic, religion, capitalism and the war
A portrait in the form of a mosaic that resembles a view on the current situation.
