This project was born out of an encounter between a photographer and a director in La Bergerie de Berdine, a magical place in the south of France. Founded forty years ago La Bergerie de Berdine is a community of eighty people who come to re-establish their health, often after addiction either to drugs or alcohol. Some stay a few months, while others have been there for twenty years. Still others have died there. At the moment, one of the residents is a young baby (along with parents!).
