Summer is ending, it's time for ensiling in the peaceful Breton countryside. While farmers are harvesting the corn, two brothers, aged 8 and 12, are alone in their big house. Left to their own devices, they are masters of a vast kingdom and feel free to do whatever they want. They only forbid themselves to go upstairs in the house.
Inspired by current affairs, OUR OWN LAND gives the audience a child’s perspective of being surrounded by an unnerving, vast countryside. Halfway between drama and fantasy, this carefully staged short film examines the events immediately following tragedy, when shock blends with attempts at finding calm. A sensitive film full of emotion, with magnificent performances by two young actors.
