    Quand les alpinistes font leur cinéma

    Quand les alpinistes font leur cinéma

    Claude Francillon (2000)

    Many mountaineers in the course of their activity have used cameras and films to let us participate through images in their adventures and emotions. Many of them have become true film professionals: Lionel Terray, Marcel Ichac, Renè Vernadet, Jean Afanasieff, Pierre Royer, Denis Ducroz, Kurt Diemberg and many others are among the so-called conquerors of the mountain image. The film describes the passion of these men in the highest mountains on earth...behind the lens.
