Skiing Across the French Alps

Skiing Across the French Alps

World Tourist Org. Prize -Belgium Film Festival
Few outdoor activities can match the beauty, exhilaration, and adventure of skiing in remote mountain locations. In this classic program viewers are treated to the unparalleled sights of the French Alps from the vantage point of two downhill skiers who long to escape from the noise and madness of city life. The trek starts in Nice, France, where our two skiers take a brief respite from a hectic train ride before they begin their journey up the mountainside. Within minutes, the city takes a back seat to the sheer majesty of the alpine mountain cathedral known as the French Alps. The skiers spend their first night in a small tent perched near a mountain peak, dramatically alone in the midst of a winter storm. The next morning they hike on skis to Refuge de Chambeyron for a brief rest among other mountain adventurers before continuing their demanding, yet enriching journey across the Alps to Lake Geneva. Through spectacular aerial and ground footage, as well as a compelling original musical score, producer Harvey Edwards conveys the beauty, challenge, and serenity of skiing across the French Alps, "where the water tastes like wine." 95/12DE IJSCA 20 min.
