The Village

Had it not been for Jean-Marie Barbe’s, a native son of Lussas, idea to turn this place into a centre for reflection for documentary filmmakers all over the country, Lussas would be no more than just another of France’s picturesque villages. It was to become, in time, more and more important for filmmakers and film lovers alike, drawing audiences in their thousands to the yearly film festival taking place here. What is more, the festival team has recently achieved some fantastic results, among which the most important are the creation and development of an online platform (Tënk), whose subscribers can watch a daily auteur documentary, and the establishment of a modern film school whose teachers are some of the most exciting filmmakers of our times. This process, equally difficult to finalise and fascinating to watch, makes the main focus of Claire Simon’s ten-episode series, dedicated to the Lussas phenomenon. We are thus given access into the intimacy of Barbe’s team, a chance to witness their step-by-step accomplishments, but also the disillusionment and failures experienced along their intrepid endeavour. If we were ever inclined to think that such daring projects are easier to achieve in France, “The Village” brings us back to a reality not too different from that in which small organizations in Romania struggle to keep their heads above water.
