Katherine's Marathon

Length: 26 minutes

Director: Nicolas Falquet

Girl power! While the level of difficulty in modern climbing is constantly increasing, the gap between men and women is narrowing down. The Swiss climber Katherine Choong proved it when she completed a 9A route. Reaching this rating is quite an achievement, but repeating this feat is even more difficult. Her goal is the "Jungfraumarathon", a route in the Bernese Alps. No matter how long it takes to complete this extraordinary achievement, she transforms frustration into patience, failure into solution but moreover, dreams into reality.

Himalaya, one step beyond

Set off in the company of explorer Eliott Schonfeld and his horse named Robert to traverse the Himalayan range. 4 months and more than 2,000 km far off the beaten track, through magnificent but hostile landscapes. His path leads him through wide valleys and challenging glaciers but also to incredible encounters with the last nomads of the planet. Along the way to reach material autonomy, this young adventurer will have to go beyond his limits to overcome this "march of decline". A daring gamble and above all a funny and touching film that leads us to rethink our own path to adventure.
