La Grande Famille


Type : auralize, scoring

Year : 2017

La Grande Famille is a journey from gloomy pasts into the present day, lived-in family community.

Pia is the daughter of a French ex-model and Zinzin is the son of a former heroin addict. Both of them are ‘saisonniers’ – seasonal agricultural workers. Two different stories with the same fate: nomads living in forests, sheltered by a family chosen by themselves and living a life away from the society they have rejected.

Secret hard-tech parties, drugs, hippie revivalism and other rituals have been uncovered by these two young adults, revealing the everyday life of one of the biggest nomad and marginal subcultures in Europe.
