A new technology had just been invented where cameraman and soundman weren't wired together anymore. The new camera was light and held on shoulder. Brault is still viewed by some as the best cameraman and photo director in history. The subject was a small island community Perrault's wife is from. At first sight, this is just another run of the mill documentary. Look twice and a whole other story is put forward by editor and cameraman. Notice shot in daisy field. This ain't a documentary. Film was re-issued in video early 1999. Part of a three film series with same cast and crew. Decades ahead of its time.
