'Demain, la vallée': the Just Scapes film

Demain, la vallée (or, in English, Tomorrow, the valley) is the film produced by our French case-study team, in collaboration with filmmaker Jérôme Prudent.

The film follows the Just Scapes research process in our Arac valley case site, in the Ariège, France. It focuses on the work of our French team - Cécile Barnaud, Benjamin Begou and Lisa Darmet, along with writer/trainer Anouke Journo - but most of all, the film gives voice to the citizens who participated with us in the research.

The people who speak in the film range from livestock farmers to mayors; from vegetable farmers to artists; from newcomers to the area to people whose families have lived in the Arac Valley for generations.

They speak about the use - and proposed uses - of their landscape in the face of climate change, as well as how they themselves live in and through this valley.
