    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.
