Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Raymond Depardon and his long-time sound engineer Claudine Nougaret co-direct this self-study of the director, shot in part during Depardon's 2004 tour of France, when he took photographs of charming regional cafes, factories, forests and highways with a large-format 20x25 camera for an exhibition at the Bibliotheque Nationale. This road movie is intercut with revealing behind-the-scenes footage, anecdotes and excerpts from the filmmaker's oeuvre.
