Une vie en forêt

A life in the forest
Realization: Gilles Santantonio
Production  MC4
France – 52 minutes – 2019

For nearly fifty years, botanist Francis Hallé has been surveying and defending the great primary forests. With him, we set off on a new forest exploration where, from trees and lianas to algae and bacteria, everything bears witness to the fascinating strategies of living things. Today, deforestation is such that only a broad movement of public opinion would seem capable of stopping it. This plea suggests avenues for the development of forest resources.

Less is more

The Surf Island Family is a family of adventurous surfers with an atypical, intriguing and inspiring lifestyle. Part-time teachers on the Ile de Ré, the parents travel the globe the other six months of the year with their two children. Far from over-consumption, meeting the waves and others in a simple and uncluttered life, we embark with them for Indonesia. But nothing happens as planned, so we head to a destination that is unexpected to say the least.

110 years after Louis Blériot, Franky Zapata is trying to cross the English Channel perched on his revolutionary "Flyboard Air". A record crossing of about fifteen minutes at more than 150 km/h, alone on a flying board... At the same time, in Hungary, Laszlo Ungar has set himself the goal of rebuilding Louis Blériot's plane identically and flying in the same conditions. Zapata, Ungar: two approaches to aviation, but one and the same tribute to the pioneers.

Le marathon de Katherine

Katherine's Marathon
Realization: Nicolas Falquet
Production: Huck and Chuck
Switzerland – 26 minutes – 2019

Being the first Swiss woman to cross the symbolic 9A bar is good. But to be able to repeat the feat is even better - and even more difficult. For Katherine Choong, climbing is a school of life, a true philosophy. No matter how long it takes to achieve this new extraordinary achievement, Katherine turns frustration into patience, failure into solution. A performance that defies the laws of gravity, under the eye of her peers and an accomplice camera.

France – 52 minutes – 2019

For several years now, Evrard Wendenbaum has been putting his knowledge, energy and experience to work in the conservation of unexplored paradises, the "lost worlds", vestiges and true heritage of humanity. The Matarombeo is one of them. The almost total lack of knowledge about this massif guarantees an immense potential for discovery, from the depths of its underground networks to the peaks of its canopy. Between adventure and exploration, an unprecedented immersion.
