Fishermen of Saint-Tropez

A documentary by Sérine Lortat-Jacob

 52 min I French


Saint-Tropez, the last fishermen on their traditional fishing boats – my uncle Dédé and his son Pascal – in the face of luxury boats, tall and blind, who snatch the fish lines without caring about the sea nor the fishes. Dédé and Pascal share their fishing stories, which live on through time-refined knowledge.

Press reviews

France Bleu Provence (02/02/23) : "You have to watch it, and watch it again, because [Dédé] has such a way of talking, of telling us about things... Our absolute favourite."

Nice Matin (02/02/23) : « A poignant film about a traditional trade (with a nod to St. Peter's Day) and which does not forget to ask questions about the future through Antoine. »
