En compétition


In the vastness of Antarctica, the wind takes over. Excessive, playful, combative. Between the storms there can be enough of a lull for those that try to tame it. Towed by their wings, four members of the Group* find themselves at the foot of an impressive challenge, a 750 m bow emerging from the ice. Will it be possible to leave a track to the summit? An account of icy poetry and whimsical climbing. 
* : Groupe militaire de haute montagne (Chamonix-France)

The choice of the festival

Fans of SF novels are all familiar with the famous Horde du Contrevent. This time the horde is made up of four members of the Military High Mountain Group (GMHM) who have travelled to confront the storms of the Antarctic. After a spectacular crossing towed by kite surfs, the musketeers climb a sculpted 750m high pillar. The GMHM are as impressive as ever, with their commitment and technical ability. This time they have an additional ingredient that gives a special flavour to their feat: poetry. Preview of the film.
