    Limi Vod

    Limi

    Ulysse Lefebvre (2019)

    On the borders of Nepal and Tibet lie a series of mountain ranges that remain largely untouched. Blank areas, as geographers like to call them; expanses of pastel shading applied by mapmakers to depict the unknown. Proof that there are still corners of the vast Himalayan chain, home to the world's highest mountains, where the inquisitive alpinist can find untrodden sanctuaries to explore. A small group of mountaineers trek for twelve days through unspoiled landscapes and unexpected encounters to set up their base camp and attempt snow-capped peaks on Limi mountain. As the journey progresses, the film questions these peregrinations, mountaineering becoming a pretext for exploration.

    Génération Dry

    Gaëtan Raymond (2016)

    Dry tooling, ice climbing on suspended structures, is an activity that has been expanding in recent years, almost everywhere in France. From the experienced mountain climber to the occasional indoor climber, everyone wants to try. The film will show the various facets of the activity, its development, its practices and practitioners as well as its 'applications', thanks to the testimony of several major actors in this discipline. The focus will also be on climate-related issues. These last seasons are increasingly poor in ice due to the winter heat.
