The Men on the Mountain

To become mountain guides, new candidates enroll every year in the national academy of skiing and mountain climbing at Chamonix, France. In four years of training, they are going to blend their passion for climbing with the responsibility for taking people up on the cord. Their elders, guides "father to son", or "strangers to the valley" bear witness to how the profession has evolved. Stressing the human adventure of their predecessors, this documentary film goes right along with these young future guides, sharing their joys and doubts, that make them, in their turn, men of the mountain, with that devouring, fragile flame that drives them ever higher. Collaborators: the guides Joseph Ravanel, "the red"; Gilles and Alexander Ravanel; Philippe Bonano; Quentin Delavignette and the Promotion ENSA 2005.
