Cinéaste et ethnologue (1930-2013)
Switzerland 2002. 35mm, Beta, VHS, colour, 27 min.
While filming «Market Day», we followed for a whole year from 2001 to 2002 a farming family from Primapraz (Puidoux, Vaud). Day by day, in all seasons, throughout the multitude of chores (market gardening, caring for the animals, cows, chickens, rabbits, baking bread, braiding buns, making jam) carried out by Rémy and Corinne Chevalley, their four children, and their parents, Micheline and George Chevalley.
Three times a week, they take their produce to markets in Vevey and in Cully. The boys play in the brass band with their father, the girls attend the local gym club. In 2001, they all spent a week in Egypt together, a family trip paid by the «pennies from the market», said Corinne.
Their courage and their know-how can only fill us with admiration.
