The Bapst Brothers: Romain, Maurice and Jacques – whom we will also meet in The Gruyere Chronicle (produced in 1990) – are peasants and carriers and work with their father. In autumn and winter, they bid for the community’s wood, cut down the pine trees and bring down the logs through the snowy woods by horse-drawn sleigh.

Press review

Jacqueline Veuve's film on the unloading of wood in the mountain, which was shot in La Roche with Conrad Bapst's sons, was recently honoured in Paris. It received first prize, no less - on account of its part in preserving the "French" heritage. La Gruyère, 1989 (mg)
