The result of a long ethnographic survey, this documentary film reveals the potential, in India as in France, of a return to sailing in maritime trade.
We follow the players as closely as possible to their practices, with the aim of highlighting their motivations as well as their hopes and doubts. As much as their know-how and varied initiatives, it is on their perseverance that the possibility of finding alternatives that will give wind and wood a new place in maritime trade may depend.
By looking at what may be happening in India and France, the film shows that the revolution taking shape today in this field will only gain momentum and have a decisive impact if it succeeds in reconciling ecological concerns with those of a socio-economic nature, both in Europe and the rest of the world.
The screening will be followed by a round-table discussion in the presence of :
