The story :

Isolated hills scattered across the lowlands give relief to an otherwise flat and uniform landscape. 

It is around Boeschepe, in the early morning of September 1959, that Léon Panckoucke meets a handful of friends. At this time of year harvesting of the ripe hop cones is almost completed and, throughout the region, people engage in the Hammel Pap festival, a rural style feast consisting in a rustic country picnic meal to the sound of folk music performed by local bands. The day ends with the burning of a straw man at nightfall to celebrate the end of the working season in the hop fields.

This is a time when the blended smells of cereals, grass and conifers combine to create a unique and intoxicating fragrance that fills the cool air of the Flemish night.
