Film Story

When people with an interest in organic food and permaculture come to Gilbert’s association to wonder at it’s 6,500 seeds varieties, or submerge themselves in it’s 2,000 fruit trees orchard, they soon find out that this is not just about promoting a “healthy way of life” when Gilbert is telling them :

“I rather eat shit together than good food on my own”.

Born in Belgium, Benjamin Hennot directed in 2013 the documentary The Narrow Jungle (La jungle étroite) which follows the life of a former trade unionist, as he cares for an experimental garden, for the association Fraternités ouvrières, in the francophone town of Mouscron, Belgium.
