Ο Jean Baronnet, με τον σύμβουλο François Ede, υπέδειξαν την Cinévolution για την αποκατάσταση του ήχου. Βρέθηκε ένα αντίγραφο της αρχικής μαγνητικής ηχητικής ταινίας, η οποία ωστόσο ήταν οξειδωμένη και παραμορφωμένη και για να διασωθεί και ψηφιοποιηθεί χρησιμοποιήθηκε μια παλιά συσκευή Fougerolle. Η απόδοση των χρωμάτων έγινε υπό της επίβλεψη του François Ede και του βοηθού εικονολήπτη της ταινίας Jean-Noël Ferragut. Digitized in 4K at the CNC laboratory in France from the original 35mm image negative. Jean Baronnet and his advisor François Ede requested Cinévolution for the sound restoration. A duplicate of the magnetic sound master was found, which had however a high level of vinegar and was very distorted. To read it an ""old generation"" Fougerolle reader was used. The grading was supervised by François Ede and Jean-Noël Ferragut who was the assistant operator on the film.

Skinoussa is a small Greek island of only 90 inhabitants, buried in the Cyclades archipelago as if it was drowned between two blue immensities: the sky and the water. No running water, no electricity, no doctor, no police, but a priest, two national holidays, and two cafes: time seems to have stood still there as if the small island had been forgotten. Jean Baronnet discovered it by chance. He was taking a boat ride, he fell in love with it. He chose to film the place like Brueghel, a long time ago, painted his famous painting Landscape with the fall of Icarus.

Jean Baronnet was born in Paris in 1929 and studied music at the Conservatory. He became a sound engineer on few films directed by Jean Daniel Pollet, Claude Lelouche or Alain Cavalier. He directed 11 documentaries from 1982 until 2004.
