    Summary
    Part travel diary, part retrospective, Journal de France trails acclaimed documentarian Raymond Depardon on his six-year journey around the French countryside photographing the landscape with a large format plate camera. Interspersed with images of a disappearing France are documentary clips and neverbeforeseen footage from Depardon's incredible 40-year reporting career, in which he covered civil wars in combat zones around the world as well as political subjects closer to home. This long, solitary road trip provided fertile ground for the creation with his long-time partner and collaborator Claudine Nougaret of an extraordinary travel journal.
