With the participation of craftsmen and labourers from Moutier, Switzerland and surroundings.


“La Ruine du Moujik” is an old farm house from 1590, in the Bernese Jura, which is being renovated and transformed inside.

During two years the camera observed the work carried out by craftsmen and labourers on site. The collected images, once edited, become delirious, humoristic, worrying and poetic. An experimental documentary showing a feminine and unusual perception of a building site, giving a different dimension to men’s labour and their machinery.

A film where music and the sound of the building site replace the spoken word.
