Breton with French and English subtitles
TI-PRI (The Mud House, 1972) is a poetic homage to subsistance farming in Brittany and at the same time a militant warning against the loss of Breton culture and language. When the film screened in Oberhausen in 1973, resistance against the oppression of minority languages and cultures within centralized France was at its peak. TI-PRI was director Philippe Cassard's first film. In an interview he talks about his motivation to support the Breton cause and recalls the obstacles the film had to overcome on the way to Oberhausen.
