LA FERME DU GARET
An invitation to take a trip on the back of a kite or in the belly of an accordion. Entering into the text and photos of Raymond Depardon’s La Ferme du Garet (dedicated to his two sons), the audience is drawn into a subtle interplay between appearances and associations. Marc Feld reconstructs the sensitive tissue of memory – its music, smells and tastes, all the sensations that lead to emotion.
An actor takes us into the complex movements of a man’s memory, reeling in, one by one, the fragments of a true story – the story of a small farm, the country of childhood that formed the imagination of the photojournalist, the tale of the passage of time during which he became a man in exile in a world undergoing profound change. A tangible account of the flitting dance of memory, of cracks in time, of the disappearance of an era and a way of life.
