The Sounds of Water

Affiche officielle du film documentaire "Les Chants de l'Eau"

This 52-minute documentary film explores the different roles water plays and the different ways water is perceived in communities throughout the world

During a yearlong trip around the world, meeting with local populations in big cities and remote villages, Perrine & Guillaume Broust embarked on a journey to learn more about people’s relationship with water, producing the documentary film, The Sounds of Water ("Les Chants de l'Eau").

How is water perceived and used? What are its benefits and risks? What legends are told about water? What is its history? All of these topics are covered through interviews with fishermen, farmers, free divers, ministers, researchers... This documentary expands the ways we think about and use water.

Mitchell McAleer is a professional hanggliding pilot, who participated in the 2003 Red Bull Vertigo (an acrobatic paragliding and hanggliding competition). He put on one of the most incredible aerial demonstrations ever, executing one last full loop at water level in front of a truly astonished crowd. But on the second day, he performed his “killer loop” just a little bit too low and crashed into the water... Luckily, he came out unscathed.
