18 July from 8pm. Following last year’s success, we are organizing the second open air movie and picnic night. The projection will take place in the grounds of Chateau des Vigiers under the stars of a summer sky. For this 2nd event, the film “Jappeloup” written by Guillaume Canet will be shown. We’re showing this film because Dordogne was a major filming location, Jappeloup was born nearby in Saint-Seurin in Gironde and the film crew stayed at Chateau des Vigiers during the shoot, including Daniel Auteuil and Donald Sutherland.
About the film:
At the start of the 1980s, Pierre Durand abandoned a promising legal career and threw himself into his true passion, showjumping. With his fathers backing, he gambled everything on a young horse who no one else had any faith in: Jappeloup. Too small, too stubborn, too impetuous, he had many faults, but nonetheless had a remarkable jumping ability. From competition to competition, the pair improved and began to make their mark on the showjumping world. But the Los Angeles Olympic Games were a disaster for them, and Pierre had to face up to his shortcomings. With the help of his wife Nadia and groom Raphaëlle, Pierre regained Jappeloups confidence and built a relationship that took them to victory in the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
