In the Name of the Land

An intimate family drama set against the backdrop of rural France, IN THE NAME OF THE LAND is the debut feature from Édouard Bergeon – and inspired by his own life, made as a tribute to his parents.

Pierre (Guillaume Canet, La Belle Époque) returns from Wyoming to the rural Mayenne region of France to take over his family farm. Marrying his sweetheart and building his own family, life is good – until it isn’t. A film that depicts the highs and lows of agricultural life and the ties that bind family and land – for better or worse – IN THE NAME OF THE LAND is a powerful and unyielding story of resilience and isolation. 2020 CÉSAR AWARDS NOMINEE – Best Debut Film, Best Male Newcomer. WINNER – 2019 ANGOULÊME FILM FESTIVAL – Best Actor.
