A film written and directed by Vincent Gérard, Cédric Laty, Bernard Marcadé, Camille Zéhenne

Film / Documentary / 51 min

With precised extracts words chosen sparingly from Mythologies by Roland Barthes, through a boat trip, a bike race, a walk, an airplane flight, a striptease. Barthes* is a journey, eyes wide open in the famous light of the french South West, from Urt to the Atlantic Ocean.
