), the story begins in the midst of the crisis in the countryside, where everything is going wrong: meat prices are crashing, milk is selling at a loss, and farmers are being left feeling like they have no choice but to hang themselves from the crossbeams of their barns. Georges Balbuzard, the mayor of Mêle sur Sarthe, is the sort of man who won’t let himself be beaten down, and is determined to save his village. As luck would have it, Blake Newman, a great conceptual photographer who strips the masses bare, is stuck at a roadblock on the N12. What if he were to photograph three hundred naked Normans in Chollet field?

Produced by Anne-Dominique Toussaint for Les Films des Tournelles (working with Philippe Le Guay for the third time), Normandie Nue will be co-produced by SND (which will handle the film’s distribution in France and international sales) and France 2 Cinéma. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature is also being supported by the Normandy region, where all eight weeks of filming will take place, from 27 march to 19 May.
