Summary

Daniel Wattiau’s Super 8 family archives, plunge the viewer into the long-gone age when the inland water shipping was synonymous of a free and itinerant way of life, a popular culture matched with a unique imaginary world. Jean-Claude, young bargeman in activity, is presented as a contemporary counterpoint, completed by the account of retired bargee couples from the village of Longueil-Annel, still marked by the living stories of these water people.
