    Premier de cordée

    Pierre-Antoine Hiroz (1999)

    Joseph Serettaz, a reputed guide from Chamonix, in the French Alps, is killed at the end of the 1930's during a climbing expedition with a rich industrialist from Milan. The latter is unhurt, although in a state of shock. When Zian Servettaz sets off to find his father’s body, destiny again takes a hand and he too is the victim of a fall, in which he fractures his cranium. The industrialist’s daughter Bianca would like to express her gratitude to the Servettaz family, but Zian rebuffs her kindness. Adaptation of three novels by Roger Frison-Roche (Premier de cordee, La grande crevasse, Retour a la montagne).

    Premier de cordee - La grande crevasse

    Benoît Aymon (1999)

    This documentary shows how the fiction film "Premier de Cordée" and "La grande Crevasse", inspired by Roger Frison-Roche's famous work, were shot. Seated comfortably in easy-chair, it is difficult to imagine all the preparations needed to make a film in the mountains. To satisfy this legitimate curiosity Benoit Amon followed the work of these two films in the Chamonix setting.
