Göttingen International Ethnographic Film Festival

The festival was founded in 1993. The general aim of the festival is to promote documentary cinema in the context of intra- and intercultural communication and to give credit to new films,
videos or interactive media dealing with anthropology, sociology and cultural studies in a wide sense of the term. The festival provides an opportunity for international co-operation in this
field with special emphasis on bridging East and West, for an exchange of such media and for seeking ways of their broader use. The festival is meant to be a chance for authors, owners and
distributors, but also for users to exchange their views at the screenings and following discussions, as well as at additional specialized events which may be an integral part of the festival. One of these events will be a Student Competition with a prize awarded to the best student film.

Marie Devuyst
Was born in Brussels. After a first licence in a sociocultural communication school,
she continued her studies in art-school Sint-Lukas, in the documentary section.
This work is her master film.

In Cransac, there had been the mines. Yesterday still,
coal rhythmed the life of this little Aveyron town, where working class and
rural cultures blended together. Then, the pickaxes stood silent. The film plunges us
in the everyday life of two families, one rural, the other one working class.
It is the story of the basin that is being told, its past, present and future identity.
