MARCELLE DELPASTRE, LIFE ON EDGE. 26 min
In 1985, in her hamlet in Germont (near Chamberet-Corréze) the writer Marcelle Delpastre kept on doing in the obscurity ,since 30 years, a poetic, strict, marginal work at the touch of the ground and her intuitions. Since then her autobiography (ten volumes published by Payot) and her numerous written works (novels, poems, ethnographical investigations) revealed her to the general public.
In this last film (shot in 1996 ten years after two others : Marcelle Delpastre, the vegetable song and Marcelle, word) she reveals herself with a great sincerity. She talks about her work as a farmer and her poetry following relentlessly her search for an authentic and powerful word around her ground.
