Note of intent

Finding our roots

This is a “finding-my-roots” documentary featuring grapevines and the people who have cultivated them for the past 200 years on both sides of the Atlantic. It will bring the audience a back-to-the-future look at American and French cultural exchange in an original and unique way.


For Lucie, whether growing wild on the forest fringe or constrained to a garden trellis, grapevines are a beautiful gift of nature and sustenance.

Beyond the grapes, if the documentary Vitis prohibita is about resistance to oppression (religious, foreign, bureaucratic), Bon Voyage Vitis is about assimilation and adaptation to new environments.
