The Days After

Original title Jours d’après


In France, the mountainous region Trièves is home to an experimental farm called La Ferme Tournesol which is entirely energy self-sufficient. Jean-Philippe and his family live off sheep farming and organic market gardening in this proper laboratory for renewable energies. In September 2017, a devastating fire wiped out the farm, its facilities and equipment. A unique solidarity chain was formed to restore it from the ashes.
