    La vie des paludiers de Guérande







    De 3 minutes 21 à 4 minutes 5 secondes







    Et quand on regarde ces paludiers aux pieds nus, on assiste surtout à un véritable ballet.







    Ces gestes ancestraux permettent de récolter le gros sel. Ici, pas de machine, pas d’engrais. Tout est en accord avec la nature.







    J’ai un sentiment de liberté quand je travaille euh, dans les marais salon. Pourtant euh, la météo comme patron, euh, c’est pas facile, hein. Mais, ouais, c’est la liberté dans ma tête.







    The life of the Guérande salt pond workers







    From 3 minutes 21 to 4 minutes and 5 seconds







    And when you look at these barefoot salt pond workers, you mostly see a dance ballet.







    These ancestral gestures is what make it possible to harvest coarse salt. Here, no machine, no fertilizer. Everything is in keeping with nature. I have a sense of freedom when I work uh, in the salterns. Yet uh, having the weather as a boss, uh, it’s not easy, huh. But, yeah, it’s what freedom is, in my head.
