A Small Community in the Vosges

A few good berets in this beautiful 1969 documentary about a village in the Baganelles Pass in the Vosges, where small scale farmers cling to their farms.   
The farmers explain their working conditions which are so much more difficult in the mountains. In winter, they become lumberjacks for the municipality. The images linger on the activities of daily life, milking cows, making cheese or landscaping. 
Even if you don't master the language, very worthwhile watching!
