Vougot, the beach of the movie “Stormy Waters”

Following the northern coast of Finistere in Brittany, seeking a surf spot, I get to the beach Vougot, Guisseny. There were no waves to surf, but the scenery was breathtaking, so I took my camera and start to film and take photographs.

“Remorques”:

A eventful shooting Filming Remorques” has been a long process. During the 14 days of filming outside the side of Brest (four on board, one in Vougot and five on the docks, coffee level Bellec, street Porstrein), the team is constantly surprised by the rain, many in July 1939. In August and September, the work continues, but this time in the studios of Billancourt, for interior scenes. Then the declaration of war sounds like a cannon, September 3, and therefore prevents Jean Grémillon turn in normal conditions. The men of the team are all mobilized.
