Documentary film 80’’
Co-realisation with Christelle Jornod
Les Chasseresses shows the hunting practices of four women living in the the mountains of Valais. By following them on their hunting trips, as well as during the preparation and handling of the meat, the film reveals the special relationship they have with nature, the landscape, and the environment. A close, intimate, but also sensual relationships engages their bodies and senses in an intense and unique way.
However hunting also conveys relationships of domination and hierarchy, whether between humans and nature, or between men and women. So how does the social and cultural context influence the positions and hunting practices of our four protagonists? Does the practice of hunting allow them a form of autonomy? And how do they manage to overcome the hierarchical relationships inherent in this practice?
