    Un hiver avec les sauveteurs du Mont-Blanc

    Nicolas Moscara (2012)

    In winter, the Mont-Blanc massif attracts thousands of skiers, hikers and mountaineers. For some, the stay turned into a tragedy, requiring the intervention of the men of the high mountain gendarmerie platoon of Chamonix. During a winter, Nicolas Moscara followed these professionals, using cameras placed on their helmets to obtain spectacular and original images. Thus, he filmed rescues deep in the mountain: the descent into hell of Rino, trapped for 24 hours in a crevasse or the miraculous rescue of Michael, an American skier who fell in the heart of the glacier.

    Les Frères Ravier - L’aventure pyrénéenne

    Les Frères Ravier - L’aventure pyrénéenne

    Maryse Bergonzat (2007)

    Jean and Pierre Ravier have opened almost all the 'classic' (difficult) routes in the Pyrenees. Strung at the waist with a few flat knots and little material, the two twin brothers made more than 200 first ones throughout the massif. A unique style and commitment, a state of mind made up of adventures, literature, inventiveness and friendships. Unclassifiable and welcoming, after 60 years of Pyreneism, their desire for the mountains is intact. When does a race start? How does the idea, the desire come from it? What sense does it make to realize only the first ones? And what is the role of the Pyrenees themselves in this mutual and endless game of attraction?

    Gary Hemming Vod

    Gary Hemming

    Jean Afanassieff (1996)

    he American Alpine climber Gary Hemming was a figure of the 60’s. The story of this out-of-the-common character is closely linked to that of the mountain rescue in Les Drus in 1966, in the mont Blanc range, a rescue he took the initiative for. The press fell on the event and raised Gary Hemming to the status of a national hero. All the papers show on the front page this big young man who looks like a 'beatnik' dressed all anyhow, with a wide smile and long fair hair. From then on, he is nicknamed the beatnik of the summits. In Chamonix he is already known. Gary landed in France in 1960 and while preparing a university degree in Grenoble, he devotes himself to his passion: climbing.

    Guido Magnone - La voie des sommets

    Jean-Michel Rodrigo (2006)

    From the Andes to the Himalaya, from Fitzroy to Makalu and the Mustagh tower, on the west of the Drus, Guido Magnone made his name between the alpinist 50’s giants. Old student of Les Beaux Arts, swimming champion, he is one of the adventurers who dared to storm the edge of the world. In these times, this exploit was as a walk towards the first steps on the moon. Today, Guido is 80, and is still fond of challenges. His memories always give him the great shiver. He tells us about the terrible winds on the argentinean Patagonia, the sherpas fascination for the edges gods. He also speaks of his fight at the head of the UCPA, so that sport and nature pleasures can be transmitted.
