    Quand les alpinistes font leur cinéma

    Claude Francillon (2000)

    Many mountaineers in the course of their activity have used cameras and films to let us participate through images in their adventures and emotions. Many of them have become true film professionals: Lionel Terray, Marcel Ichac, Renè Vernadet, Jean Afanasieff, Pierre Royer, Denis Ducroz, Kurt Diemberg and many others are among the so-called conquerors of the mountain image. The film describes the passion of these men in the highest mountains on earth...behind the lens.

    Auf Skiern am Limit

    Auf Skiern am Limit

    Franz Hinterbrandner (2015)

    Skiing untouched mountain faces is a sport which has always been reserved for only a few chosen ones, and where the mistakes are pitiless punished. The places for this kind of skiing are on the up to 60 degree steep north faces of the Schober massif and the Dolomites. The two protagonists Thomas Gaisbacher from Tyrol and Samuel Anthamatten from Zermatt, introduce the history behind such an extreme sport and show the input behind the scenes, the preparation in summer, the training and the scouting, before the real ‘drop’ in the steep slope can take place.

    La Grande Cordée

    La Grande Cordée

    Jean Afanassieff (1997)

    French mountaineering after the war underwent great renewal. In contrast to aristocratic mountaineering with personalities like Henri de Ségogne, and professional mountaineering with guides as the emblematic figures, a new form of amateur mountaineering developed from the Parisian working classes: 'cheeky' mountaineering. The Robert Paragot-Lucien Bérardini team is the most striking illustration of this. Insolent, iconoclastic, anticonformist, they symbolise the post-war climbers from modest backgrounds who, caring nothing for conventions and rules, upset the stereotypes of the 'perfect mountaineer'.

    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.
