A lost masterpiece of cinema, now restored and available for the first time in years, Cousin Jules was the result of five years (1968-1973) of painstaking work by director Dominique Benicheti and cinematographer Pierre-William Glenn. Over that period, the team recorded the lives of Jules and Felicie, French farmers living in the countryside. The result is an immersive work and a record of a way of life that vanished long ago.
