« Le Chemin » is both a surfing film and an engaged documentary.
It traces the journey of Arthur Bourbon, professional surfer and director, from the Basque Country to Brittany.
On the road, Arthur meets surfers and ocean lovers with inspiring commitments and life paths, while rediscovering the surf spots of the French Atlantic Coast.
An adventure full of simplicity and kindness, advocating a different type of travel and a sense of wonder.
Along the way, the landscapes of the coastline will be revealed along the bike path, like a forgotten treasure at the bottom of the garden.
And there is nothing like the rhythm of a bicycle to enjoy it.
It is also an opportunity to discover initiatives and personalities, through 6 portraits.
How to live more simply? How to eat and produce differently? How can we travel while limiting our impact? Sobriety or innovation? These issues, at the heart of all debates on environmental and climate issues, are addressed here in a positive and entertaining way.
The intention is above all to show some examples and alternatives in order to encourage reflection.
And of course the waves, because it is above all a "surf trip"!
Along the "Vélodyssée", this famous cycling route, it is the best opportunity to discover the coast and to find some unknown jewels.
What better way to enjoy the beautiful conditions of early autumn?
