Friends Christian, 63, and Bruce, 71, each have their burden to bear : Christian suffers from a genetic condition that severely impairs his vision and makes his skin hypersensitive to sunlight, while Bruce is hard of hearing and bipolar. But both men share a dream : to fly, to defy gravity, to rise up against the limitations of their bodies. As a very thorough and rational person, Christian has mastered the techniques of paragliding, and, after years of struggle, he has been given permission to fly on his own. He is now persuading the more erratic and turbulent Bruce to do the same and follow him all the way to Mont Blanc. An intimate and unsettling portrait of two non-conforming individuals, this “direct cinema” piece with surrealist undertones takes us on a journey into the luminous heights and the dark intricacies of the human psyche. (RegardingGravity)

… A delicate and disturbing first feature film, which starts from the intimate before taking on an almost epic dimension. – 24 images
