Inspired by the adventurous stories of Mark Twain, SOUTHWIND uncovers the layers of American history associated with the Mississippi River, from Native Americans, colonialism, slavery to the difficulties related to the use of corn, pesticides and genetically modified seeds in American agriculture.

SOUTHWIND begins with the restoration of a traditional 21-foot-long paddle steamer, which Maxime Berthou and Mark Pozlep use to cruise the 1712 miles of the Mississippi River from its source in Minnesota to its mouth in Louisiana. The trip lasts 50 days and is punctuated by imposed stops to collect corn from different local farmers along the 10 different states that they cross. Upon arrival in New Orleans, the boat will be transformed into a small distillery, able to produce moonshine, the clear, unaged, mythical alcohol of the prohibition era. Through their personal experiences and emotions, Maxime and Mark use contemporary storytelling as a narration for knowledge and awareness.

In partnership with the Centre Pompidou.
