Over a career spanning 20 years, the guides Emmanuel Pellissier and Sam Beaugey

and their client and friend Fraçois Calvarin, the ‘Sales Gosses’ gang (the book by Sam Beaugey published by Editions Guérin) recounts an aspect of the guides profession – that of far flung adventures – through fifteen expeditions carried out across the globe. With their inimitable humour, they describe the subtle nuance that exists between a professional relationship and that of a deep friendship. Building a different way of guiding, while keeping the same spark as when they were climbing as amateurs. The aim is to share the discovery of unexplored places with the help of their colleague Christophe Profit, and achieve new routes or new combinations of polar crossings, kites and climbing. The aim is to put François on an equal footing by sharing their skills. The technical level is less important than the spirit of their adventures and sharing the same passion.

Bande annonce

The choice of the festival

Sam Beaugey, Manu Pélissier and their little gang are irreverent, mocking, but always funny and endearing. They are also loyal guides taking their clients on a wild ride to the four corners of the globe. This film is dedicated to one of them, François Calvarin, a lifelong companion. With the help of images shot during various expeditions, Sam recounts the deep bond between guide and client, a friendship based on trust and a lot of humour. A certain vision of a profession not limited to taking clients to the top of Mont Blanc. The film will only just be finished for the festival, but initial images are promising!
