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.

🎥 « Keep it Burning » 🔥 Introducing my latest film project, which follows the expedition of @edumarin1 and his family. On July 20, 2022, Edu successfully completed the second free ascent of «Eternal Flame» (VI 7c+ / 5.13a) on the Nameless Tower #pakistan

This incredible route (considered by some as the most beautiful granite climb in the world) was established by Wolfgang Güllich, Kurt Albert and a strong #climbing team.

33 years later, Edu achieved the route in a single push, supported by his brother @alexmarinclimb and his father @novatomarinrueda. This accomplishment comes 13 years after @huberbuam_official initial free ascent.

📅 Save the Date! The world’s Premiere of the film will take place in @trentofilmfestival ! Don’t miss it! Then the film will run at all the film festivals throughout the season. Watch the full trailer on my website.

Úžasný !! Our film #Chronoeption just won the GRAND PRIZE last week, at the @horyamesto festival in Bratislava, Slovakia! 🥳 It’s such an honor to receive recognition at such a prestigious event. We’re thrilled to see the film resonate across Europe and beyond. 🙏

Many of you have been asking about the soundtrack 🎵 Music plays a significant role in my creative process, and for this documentary, I collaborated with independent French musicians, beatmakers, and local talents we encountered in Kyrgyzstan. Most of the music is available on my official website (except for one track, which we’re still waiting for—can you guess which one? 😅😈).

The film continues its journey through the Banff World Tour and will be available on YouTube in October 2024. VĎAKA! 🫶

On location for the filming of «the Future of Climbing» this time with @theo_blass_climbing. Théo did his first 6a (5.10a) at the age of eight, which took him 10 attempts to achieve. Then at the age of 12, he sent his first 9a (5.14d…) Théo is a very talented young climber, but also deeply attached to the crags and nature. We can’t wait to show you what he has to say for our film.

Suite du tournage du film «l’Escalade du Futur» avec @cedriclachat cette fois-ci avec Théo Blass. Théo a réalisé son premier 6a à huit ans, dont il lui aura fallu 10 essais pour l’enchaîner. À partir de ce moment c’est le déclic, à 12 ans il faisait son premier 9a… Théo est un jeune grimpeur très doué, mais aussi profondément attaché à la falaise et à la nature. Nous avons hâte de vous faire découvrir ce qu’il a à dire pour notre film.
