    LE SABOTIER DU VAL DE LOIRE

    Jacques Demy France, 1956

    Centering the day-to-day of a clog maker, Demy not only elevates the specificity of a dying trade but also ponders on the changing tides of modernity and the inevitability of death. Shot in black and white, the Loire Valley landscape is stark yet evocative, haunted by the lingering specter of WWII.
