French shepherds perform traditional dance on stilts - all very strange.
Full title reads: "France. Here's ... Novelty! Shepherds of Hossegor - who almost live on stilts, owing to marshy nature of the country - perform traditional dances in honour of visiting congress of native authors (Filmed For First Time)."
Group of men standing on stilts parade over small bridge. A few people walk alongside them.
In a small arena the men on stilts dance, in all ale couples, to the traditional music of the accordion.
Pan around part of the crowd.
Closer shot the men dancing - their clothes are made from sheepskin - presumably because they are shepherds.
More shots of the crowd.
The dancers now hold poles between them and dance around in a circle.
The return to dancing in pairs. It all looks rather odd - dancing on stilts!
