    Eric Escoffier - La fureur de vivre

    Bertrand Delapierre (2019)

    The 'Escoffier style' is a unique cocktail of grace, speed and nerve. Minimal equipment, no tiresome need for recognition, no stress but instead betting it all on the very limits of what is thought possible along with an established daredevil reputation. Being independent, fast-paced, improvising, these were the rules he lived by. From 1985 onwards, everything he did was a success: delta, firsts, climbing, race driving... As he liked to say: "Nothing is impossible". He seemed indestructible. However, on 11 September 1987, a car accident left him hemiplegic, but not to be defeated, he soon set numerous goals.

    Maewan - Iceland to Greenland

    Guillaume Broust (2016)

    This movie tells the story of the part of our adventure between Iceland and Greenland, when our temporary 'fleet' of two sailboats departed from Isafjordur, each with a crew composed of an expert sailor, a freeride skier, a mountaineer, a photographer, and a cameraman. We navigated along the western coast of Greenland through the end of August, the crew varying based on the project at hand: to ski, to rock climb, or simply to explore.

    Pour une poignée de secondes

    Pour une poignée de secondes

    Bertrand Delapierre (2013)

    Jérôme and Arnaud are two para-alpinists: mountaineers in the first leg, base-jumpers in the second. This year they are embarking on an ambitious project, the sequence of the south face of the Fou and the west face of the Drus. Unfortunately, at the top of the Bishop the tracking-suit jump seems too exposed. Nevertheless, the two friends set off in search of the perfect jump, the one that will combine at best a beautiful climb with a long fall.

    Bertrand Delapierre (2016)

    On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Aiguille Verte, the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix is making a film that traces the main dates of this summit that is so dear to it.

Big names marched in search of this 4122-metre peak: Edward Whymper, Michel Croz, Albert Mummery, Armand Charlet, Marco Siffredi... The Verte has strongly marked the history of mountaineering, inspiring Gaston Rébuffat who warned future contenders for this summit: 'Before the Verte one is a climber, in the Verte one becomes a mountainer'.
