The Rebirth of the Sainte-Victoire Mountain
A 26’ documentary directed in 1998 by Clément Fonquernie
Shooting place : France
Having been partially destroyed by a ferocious fire, the forest of the Sainte Victoire mountain is now rising again from its ashes.
The restoration of the hillside raised an interesting issue: should it be replanted in such a way that it reproduced the forest immortalized in paint by Cézanne? Or should it include trees that effectively resist fire? Or should it meet the needs of the local farmers?
After a successful negotiation, it appears that a solution combining all these objectives has been found.
