The Inspector Cluzo – Release New Documentary “Running A Family Farm” Today – UK Dates Later This Year


26th JUNE 2023



Following the release of their latest album “Horizon” and a sold out European tour with Eels, French duo The Inspector Cluzo release a 20 minute documentary film, “Running A Family Farm”, today on the 26th June 2023.

Eight years after their acclaimed “Rockfarmers” documentary, The Inspector Cluzo again invite fans into their unique lives with a new documentary film, “Running A Family Farm”. Made again by Yan Sourigues who spent over three years filming the day to day life of  the “Lou Casse” farm inhabitants; showing how the band combine their lives as musicians with running the farm. From the day to day minutiae of farming through to the challenges of global warning, covid and maintaining a sustainable farming model. All this whilst recording the genesis of their latest album “Horizon”. The documentary includes the multi Grammy Award winner Vance Powell (Jack White, The Raconteurs, Chris Stapleton) and interviews from Professor J. Luc Guérin of ENVT (École nationale vétérinaire de Toulouse) and INRAE (The Institut national de la recherche agronomique). A fascinating and entertaining insight into this unique band.
