After ten years living self-sufficiently in a forest, Brann, a biker with a criminal record, decided to invite homeless people to live on his land, setting up the «village du 115 du particulier» (115 is a telephone helpline for homeless people). Without the help of grants or subsidies, the community has developed a survival system by recycling, cutting wood and retrieving unsold food from supermarkets.

«Homelessness is a big part of our lives but compared to the refugee situation, media reports are pretty sparse. The people in the village display great neutrality; everyone is welcome, no matter what their religion or the colour of their skin.»
