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.

🌹🧛‍♂️ Julia Chanourdie, hard at work on the notorious (and magnificent) cross through move on «La Rose et le Vampire» in Buoux. How many climbers have already tried this legendary route just for the beauty of this one move?

For @juliachanourdie the unique nature of climbing outdoors doesn’t necessarily lie in the grade or performance, but more in the aesthetics and beauty of moving over rock. This is what sets it apart from many other sports…

Filming «The Future of Climbing» with @cedriclachat continues. Our next stop is in Italy and then Ticino. Thank you all for your incredibly positive feedback about this project!

===========

Julia Chanourdie, au travail dans le célèbre (et néanmoins magnifique) croisé de la «Rose et le Vampire» à Buoux. Combien de grimpeurs sont déjà allé essayer se mouvement mythique, juste pour la beauté du geste? Pour Julia, la singularité de l’escalade en naturel ne réside pas forcément dans la cotation ou la performance, mais surtout pour l’esthétisme et la beauté du geste. C’est ce qui nous différencie avec de nombreux autres sports. Le tournage du film «le Futur de l’Escalade» avec Cédric Lachat poursuit sa route, prochain étape en Italie et dans le Tessin. Merci à tous pour vos retours supers positifs sur le projet !

BUOUX 🧗 report (eng in comm)
Buoux était une étape importante de notre tournage, pour plusieurs raisons. Tout d’abord, le vallon de l’Aiguebrun fût un haut lieu (pour ne pas dire la Mecque) du développement de l’escalade libre dans les années 80’, avec des voies qui restent encore aujourd’hui des références à grimper.

Ensuite car c’est un site ultra-sensible, avec de nombreuses espèces d’oiseaux et de rapaces nichant à proximité des grimpeurs.

Buoux a aussi subi de nombreuses interdictions et fermetures, suite aux comportements des grimpeurs (à l’époque déjà) et des secteurs restent encore fermés à ce jour.

Enfin, nous avons profité du rassemblement « Escala’Buoux » pour tourner la scène d’intro de notre film, sur les traces de Patrick Edlinger.

Ce week-end prolifique fût enfin l’occasion de tourner et echanger avec @juliachanourdie @eline_lemenestrel et de rencontrer les pionniers de notre sport, @marc.lemenestrel @david1_chambre François Legrand et bien sûr Françoise Lepron aka « Snoopinette » !

Pour la petite histoire, 🚴‍♀️Eline grimpait à St-Léger et a accepté de venir à Buoux. Elle était en vélo (musculaire), en a profité pour faire le Ventoux au passage, est arrivée sur le site après 14h de pédalage, pour essayer un 8a le lendemain... 😅
A bon entendeur!

🎥 « 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.
