Friends Christian, 63, and Bruce, 71, each have their burden to bear: Christian suffers from a genetic condition that severely impairs his vision, 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.
CAST & CREW
Director of Photography
Matthieu Brouillard is a visual artist who was born in Montreal. Since 2003, he has been creating photographic works and video installations that reinvest certain stylistic traits from mythology (Icarus) and the pictorial tradition (Grünewald and Goya, baroque and mannerism), and that combine documentary and mise en scène. He studied media arts and art theory at the Université du Québec à Montréal (2013). He has been a lecturer at various universities and art schools. His works have been included in many publications and shown in numerous galleries and art-related institutions. He has published three photobooks – Narragonie (2007), Darkness Implacable (2012), and Coming through the Fog (2013, with Donigan Cumming) – whose carefully orchestrated series of images presage his movement into cinema.
