From the Film Maker:
Chloé is daydreaming during the wheat harvest in Le Pouldu. This story is about our relationship with work and how we manage – or don't manage – to live our lives besides working. If there is no separation of work and life, but it is in one harmony, things like playing and fantasy enter into the process of working, and creativity emerges.
The poppies can be seen as a symbol for sleep/rest, dream or fantasy. Chloé is keeping something that she needs to stay alive in her everyday life: her fantasy and creativity. Without it, she would become another restless worker who is too numb to be able to perceive the beauty and wisdom of nature.
A piece inspired by Paul Gauguin, Harvest: Le Pouldu, 1890
