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.

nde... C’est aussi là où convergent tous les grimpeurs, une fois l’hiver venu. A Barcelone, nous avons eu la chance de rencontrer @chris_sharma dans sa salle d’escalade, pour philosopher sur le futur de la pratique. Nous avons aussi interviewé Patxi Usobiaga à Oliana. Là-bas, un incendie a en partie endommagé la falaise mythique, nécessitant un sérieux travail de sécurisation et reconstruction de la part des grimpeurs. A Margalef, la commune se concerte pour trouver des alternatives à la surfréquentation dans le Parc Naturel, tout en préservant l’économie locale du village et l’accès aux falaises. Autant de sujets sensibles qui seront dans notre film! Merci à tous les intervenants qui se sont prêtés au jeu et qui nous ont aidé dans notre projet. Prochaine étape : Fontainebleau et @arkose.montmartre !

***********

Catalonia is home to the world’s largest concentration of 9th-grade routes... And it’s also a hotspot for climbers when winter arrives. In Barcelona, we had the privilege of meeting Chris Sharma at his climbing gym @sharmaclimbinggava to discuss the future of our sport. We also interviewed Patxi Usobiaga @pucseriestraining in Oliana, where a massive fire partially damaged the iconic cliff, requiring significant efforts for stabilization and reconstruction. In Margalef, the community is exploring alternatives to manage crowds in the Natural Park while preserving the local economy and access to cliffs. These are just a few of the sensitive topics covered in our film! Thanks to all who participated and contributed to our project. Next stop: Fontainebleau and Arkose!

When the mountains are on 🔥

Un peu de volume pour tenter de suivre les champions. C’est bon des fois aussi de faire plus de descente que de montée 😜

#holdup

Ps: la dernière photo n’est pas une aberration d’objectif. C’était bien la réalité j’avais jamais vu ce phénomène lumineux 🤔

2023 - A year in review (french in comment)
1, 2 📸 - This year 2023 was marked by the production of the film "Chronoception" for @pictureorganicclothing, an expedition film in Kyrgyzstan featuring @thomasdelfino @klauette @aurel_lardy @helias_millerioux @jeanyvesfredriksen that has been highly awarded in festivals.

3 📸 - Without a break, I then jumped on the post-production of a climbing film in Pakistan for @petzl_official and @montura_official. The film is called "Keep it Burning" with @edumarin1. We'll share more details throughout next year, but the film is going to be epic! 🔥

4 📸 - In the summer of 2023, I had the pleasure of being, for once, in front of the camera - and in flight - to assist my colleagues @antoineboisselier and @christongviet on a shooting for a paragliding film for @gingliders, amidst the huge glaciers of La Meije.

5 📸 - I continue to give a hand to @tonylamiche and his #guidemichela with some ski shoots for @oxbow.

6 📸 - Another ski shoot, this time for @michel_lanne for a 4-star bivouac project.

7 📸 - The film "One Degree," in which I participated for @ridingtoexplore, was released this year, where we had the incredible opportunity to spot a snow leopard and its two cubs!

8 📸 - And finally, a bit of corporate filming with @grandanglecorporate, to capture something else than only mountains and skiers!

9, 10 📸 - On a personal note, I participated as a pilot in the @coupeicare which was a great adventure, and we attempted to fly from the Mont Blanc summit in one single day, which was also a another great adventure!

Thanks to all the partners and athletes who trust me in my work, and who, year after year, renew the projects.
