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.

Shooting with Nina Caprez and Cédric Lachat in their tremendous #climbing project named "WoGü" (Rätikon, Switzerland). The film will also talk about the making-of shooting a #multipitch route like this, and I am pretty stocked to be part of it!

Happy to follow the #climbing dream team @cedriclachat and @ninacaprez on their mission to "WoGü", one of the hardest multipitch climbing routes in Europe. Located in the heart of Switzerland 🇨🇭 this serious climb has some pretty hard pitches to send (8c, 7c+, 8b+, 8b, 8b+, 8a+, 7c... 😱)
.
This route was bolted by @kammerlander_beat and climbed only three times, first by @adam.ondra, then @edumarin1 and @roland_hemetzberger. 💪
.
"WoGü" is the fifth route of Cedric Lachat's crazy project, #swisswaytoheaven. He has already climbed:
- "Yeah Man" 8b+, 300m Gastolsen
- "Fly" 8c, 550m, Lauterbrunnen
- "Odyssée" 8a+, 1400m, Eiger
- "Zahir" 8b+, 300m, Wendenstöcke
.
Stoked to be part of this adventure, both on the rope and behind the lens with @marc_daviet, @jeremy_bernard_photography and @5elementsproduction

Glad to be part of the new climbing book named #cliffhanger from #gestaltenbooks. This book features great stories and pictures all around the #climbing world. I took part as a photographer for the article about #Makatea when I joined Maewan on this truly amazing adventure. Hope that it will help this incredible island to rise up again!
