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.

The AirDesign movie - Break your own rules! ... See MoreSee Less

Canicule (part 2/2). Les bonnes conditions en parapente masquent une vérité bien plus grave. Au-delà des restrictions pour les piscines, le manque d'eau potable a touché cet été des dizaines de villages en France, obligés de se ravitailler en camions citerne. Nous ne sommes clairement pas préparés à ce nouveau mode de vie. Cela m'a projeté 8 ans en arrière, quand nous avons rencontré Justina Johannes, qui allait tous les jours chercher à pied l'eau au robinet d'Ehato (Namibie) à 3km de sa maison. Ce segment de film n'a pas été retenu dans notre montage final Les Chants de l'Eau - Film documentaire mais nous avons longtemps hésité à en faire la fin de notre documentaire.

Heat wave (part 2/2). The good #paragliding conditions hide a much more serious truth, beyond the restrictions for swimming pools... The drinking water shortage affected dozens of villages in France this summer, forced to refuel with tank trucks . We are clearly not prepared for this new way of life. It took me back 8 years ago, when we met Justina Johannes who went every day by foot to fetch water from the tap in Ehato (Namibia) 3km from her house. This film segment is an outtake in our final cut "The Sounds of Water", but we hesitated for a long time to finish our documentary with it.

France had its hottest and driest summer in decades 🥵
The only positive point is the incredible flights that have been achieved, like this one here, above the Barre des Ecrins last July, above 4500m high 🚀
See you in the next post for the negative points... ☹️

Room with a view... This 5056m pyramid, completely covered in ice, spines, and crevasses, was our goal for one month, lost in Kirghistan.

"Night Butterfly". Alone. Standing like a pharaoh's temple at the upper end of the glacier, it was where our eyes remained fixed day after day during the approach. This mountain is definitely the climax of my next project, a recent assignment for @pictureorganicclothing

Coming to a theater near you... in Autumn 2023.
