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.
