Watch the movie   Order the DVD

The film about the most creative French female pop group of the last ten years (12 albums, 144 songs, 120 videos, 10 million views on Youtube). Discover a freedom-loving community that the power and the media of the system have attacked, defamed, censored.

In this film shot over a period of 6 months, share their way of life set back from a world invaded by technology and devoured by individualism. Meet a large family that resists oppression by drawing strength from spirituality, sharing and mutual aid.

The community of the Rose and the Sword, which carries the musical project Les Brigandes, already diagnosed the various ills of our modern societies 15 years ago to conclude that it was absolutely necessary to found a clan which, by restoring links of mutual aid and sharing on the margins of consumerist society, could ensure the sustainability of a traditional way of life.

At a time when entire swaths of the economy and the ways of life that were associated with them threaten to collapse, what model ensures survival and resilience?
Haven’t we tried to demonize or even criminalize those who have chosen to withdraw from a consumerist society that we know is doomed in the more or less long term?
In a historical sequence where the technostructure extends its influence in an almost total and perhaps irreversible way, how to look at community groups that had anticipated this phenomenon? While all human connections and interactions have been captured by these sprawling giants, what alternatives do micro-societies and other communities offer?
While the world of culture and entertainment is at an almost complete standstill, what model allows continuity of creation and production?

This film, produced over a period of 6 months, goes to the heart of the daily life of the group, which revolves around family, spiritual and artistic life. You will discover the genesis of the community, the view of its members on the world, their fears and their hopes for the future.

Brigandes (enter the clan) presents a group of free women and men who fight against the sprawling influence of a totalitarian technostructure. It is a breath of fresh air for those who are looking for avenues at a time when a large part of the population is slipping into isolation, psychological disorders and despair.

This film will endeavor to present a virtuous model making it possible to protect human or emotional ties.
