Des bateaux et des hommes.

Documentary series

2018

The documentary series, Des bateaux et des hommes, takes viewers on a journey to meet individuals and communities for whom their boats are an extension of their being. This series will introduce viewers to different ways of life, different cultures and unusual experiences, while providing a window onto incredible, breathtaking landscapes.

Across the globe, we explore extraordinary individuals’ lives; people with saltwater coursing through their veins, people for whom their boats are an extension of their being. These boats provide them with a bridge to their ancestors, allow them to undertake studies, trade, receive medical treatment and break their isolation… Simply put, without the boats, they would have no life.
