    Au-delà des cimes Vod

    Au-delà des cimes

    Rémy Tezier (2009)

    Catherine Destivelle will make three spectacular climbs in the Alps accompanied by three different climbing partners. Each partner chosen because they had a profound impact on her life. During the ascents, she will share with us the sense of freedom and passion that the mountains inspire and the pleasure of reaching the summits. More than an intimate portrait of Catherine, the film sheds light on the close relationships that develop between climbers and the special connections made in mountaineering. Breathtaking and beautifully shot, the film unveils the magnificent Alpine environment and the immensity of the soaring rock faces.

    A l'assaut de l'himalaya

    Jean-Jacques Languepin (1951)

    In 1951, the 3rd French expedition to the Himalayas sets out to conquer the Nanda Devi (7,800m). The attempt to traverse the ridge between the main summit and Nanda Devi East resulted in the death of two members of the expedition. Team leader Roger Duplat and Gilbert Vignes disappeared on the ridge somewhere below the main summit. Tenzing Norgay was in a support team on this expedition; he and Louis Dubost climbed Nanda Devi East to look for the missing pair. Some years later Tenzing was asked what was the most difficult climb he ever did, expecting him to say Mount Everest; he surprised his interlocutors by saying Nanda Devi East. Filmed in Gevacolor.
