Synopsis

The Camargue, the thinly populated Rhône delta of South-Eastern France, is noted for the horses and bulls raised on its extensive ranches. This film deals with the traditional gathering of the wild bulls and is in three parts: a slow-motion study of the events in the arena, the herding of the animals through the marshlands and finally the drive through the streets of the town. The musical accompaniment to the first part is from Francois Couperin's "Les baricades mistérieuses". It is not necessary to be able to understand the rench commentary in order to appreciate the film.f
