Since the 1970s, local farmers in the area near Nantes have been protesting against the construction of a new airport, which would have a devastating impact on the local environment and economy. Gradually, the farmers were joined by environmental activists and anarchists, and the ZAD, an autonomous “zone of protection”, was created. Its inhabitants form a cohesive community practicing sustainable living and seeking an alternative to consumerist lifestyles and social hierarchies. A surveillance camera follows the daily activities of the residents until they are expelled by the police. (IDFF Ji.hlava)
