L'Histoire dans la peau


Region: N/A

Duration: 10x30mins

L’histoire dans la peau reveals the burning passion some people have for notable historical events. From all walks of life, these history buffs only have one thing in mind when their workday is drawing to a close – getting ready to epitomize a specific character during a historical re-enactment.

When it comes to realistically reenacting a historical event, those creating a “second life” leave nothing to chance. They are prepared to spend a fortune on equipment and devote every waking moment to skillfully preparing their character. In fact, simply putting on a costume doesn’t cut it… they have to fully immerse themselves in the given era, mirroring the habits, gestures and even the language!

The documentary series L’histoire dans la peau invites the public to relive some of the most important moments in history through the eyes of ordinary people, including the the Battle of Hastings, the Normandy Landings, and parts of the American Civil War. Let these re-enactment experts guide you on a journey back in time.
