For the “Square Artiste” series, Arte asked Denis Smalley to become a documentary filmmaker! He made a film that pays tribute to two winegrowing sisters in a village in Corbières (France). Denis Smalley spends a few months every year in the south of France, in Fabrezan, a medieval village in the Corbières. It was there that he met Aude Bories and Florence Bories, two sisters to whom he dedicated this portrait, entitled Allez les filles! [Go Girls!]. He tells how these young women realized their dream: to transform the imposing Paul Huc winery. An unusual film, rocked by his own compositions. This film is online at: https://www.arte.tv/fr/videos/073049-032-A/square-artiste/
