Screening on Thursday 10 Jun – 7:00 PM



How to become one of the best climbers in the world? Julia Chanourdie was twelve years old when she climbed the 8th degree bar. 

Today, at the age of 24, she is one of the very few women to have reached 9b, the equivalent of the maximum level in climbing. An accomplished athlete since her teenage years, Julia Chanourdie was introduced to climbing by her father, a passionate climber who has remained her coach. For the past three years, Julia has been climbing incessantly, and has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. 

She has become the incredible climber her father never doubted. 

This is the story of a total passion for minutes stolen from gravity, a singular story between a father and his gifted daughter.

The choice of the festival

Our festival is dedicated to Alpine culture, of which sport climbing is an essential part. Without the heroes of the past, we would not have the cultural heritage that feeds our imagination. Here is the heroine of today, the one of the actuality, the one who will be remembered for a long time. Julia opens up a vertiginous universe, that of the highest level of free climbing and competition. She is fully part of the heritage of mountaineering of which she embodies one of the most contemporary visions. This film also speaks to us of transmission and filiation, enough to touch the heart of all festival goers!
