Between the line


The abandoned bunkers of the Maginot line remain discreet, almost invisible, presences in the landscape of the Nord, which they permeate with their mystery.

With their singular aesthetics, their architectural characteristics and their all-but-forgotten past, these concrete shelters exercise a strange power of attraction over Alain, John and Nadia.

Each of them, in their own way, bring new life to Bunker n°6 in the Saint-Amand Forest, where a curious link is created between the past and the present.
