'Eating an Oyster Is Like Kissing the Sea on the Lips'

Meet sixth-generation oyster farmer Joël Dupuch, who works in Arcachon on the southwestern coast of France. In this short from production company Panthalassa, experience a typical day as he lives out the words of French poet Léon-Paul Fargue, who wrote about eating the highly coveted mollusk. 

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase? 

Email SFS@ngs.org to submit a video for consideration.
