Farewell my Mountain 2003  56’

Farewell my Mountain

Robert Guillet lived its fifty-fourth season on the alp. Victim of speculation, the alpine cheesemaker became a landless peasant.

He has neither field nor cattle to leave to his son Benoît. Shooting for more than a year alongside the Guillet family, Hugh Wurstemberger and Didier Schmutz with “Farewell my Mountain” offer a reflection on the future of the of the Alpine peasants.

Beyond the tragic fate of alpine cheesemaker and his family, a question emerges: is there still a future for mountain farming?
