LES CENT TOITS D’ANTOINE
France / 1996 / 52'
The roofs of the houses of the Alta Tarentaise valley in Savoia, Italy, covered using stone slabs, are one of the landscape’s attractions. The ancient craft of mining the schist quarriers and of processing the stone to cover the roofs is still the job of men such as Antoine bimet. The movie describes the work carried out by Antoine Bimet and by his town fellows, a craft which blends the past with the present.
