    Pierre Mazeaud, la vie en face(s) DVD

    Pierre Mazeaud, la vie en face(s)

    Gilles Chappaz (2013)

    Pierre Mazeaud has managed to unite three of his passions which seem to have nothing in common, at a very high level: mountaineering, jurisprudence and policy. The Everest mountaineer, rescued from the Freney Pillar, the passionate jurist, the former sports minister, privy counsellor, and president of the French Constitutional Court is a charismatic personality. This sensitive film portrait follows a line, which Pierre Mazeaud himself has quoted: “Alpinism belongs to those who provide themselves with means to reach their goals, to those who are fully committed to a goal, to those, who know the value of solidarity of men, and to those who are aware that true human existence can only be fulfilled by proceeding with a team of roped-partners.”

    Hypoxia

    Charlie Buffet (2006)

    How does the human body react when pushed into its limits? This episode of 'Beyond human limits' investigates through various experiments performed by alpinists and/or doctors about hypoxia, a disorder by which the complete body, or a region of it is deprived of the adequate oxygen supply. The documentary reviews the experience of Dr. Nicolas Jaeger, who in 1979 tested his own resistance to hypoxia, by living two months at an altitude of 6,700 meters on the highest peak of the Peruvian Andes, the Nevado Huascaran.

    L'Everest à tout prix

    Jean Afanassieff (1999)

    Twenty years after his victorious ascent to Everest, the first for a French, Pierre Mazaud returns to Nepal and makes the journey from Kathmandu to the foot of the roof of the world.
