The 13th edition of Documentary Film Month will be held in the Hautes-Pyrénées from November 3 to 29.
The Media Department Library, a service of the Department, organizes and coordinates this event completely free of charge.
11 films will be shown this year during 27 screenings in different places of the territory: cinemas, libraries,
community halls, colleges…
Anxious to make young people aware of the documentary film, the Department has included in this new edition screenings specifically intended for high school students.
Produced by a Tarbes production company, the documentary “Les Hautes-Pyrénées par les cimes” will be presented in schools 8 times in the presence of its two directors, Baptiste Cibat and Rémi Férodet.
“Les Hautes-Pyrénées par les cimes” recounts the adventure of Christophe Herbas, a trail enthusiast from Bagnères. In nine days, he covered 250 km in the mountains as close as possible to the Spanish border and climbed 21 peaks for 22,000 meters of elevation gain. An invitation to share a sporting adventure, human and above all solidarity.
All screening rights of this film will be donated to the “Baskets aux pieds” foundation, a non-profit organization that accompanies and facilitates the daily life of hospitalized children by introducing them to nature through virtual reality headsets.
Young people will also be honored among the films presented in the program for the entire audience:
➔ “The Girl with the Oval Ball”, by Christophe Vindis. It tells the story of Marcella, a 16-year-old Malagasy girl who discovers rugby. A small revolution for her, especially since her agility makes the whole village tremble as soon as she grabs the ball.
➔ “Under the silence the world rumbles”, by Alexandre Poulteau, asks us about the future of 6 teenage girls who are trying to rebuild themselves in a place to live after difficult childhoods. Can this community life give these young women a head start on stability and the energy to succeed?
➔ “#So Vai”, by Capucine Boutte and Emmanuel Saunier, follows a Brazilian women’s rugby team’s tour of the Southwest. Gathered around a common passion, language barriers break down and facing the other becomes a unique opportunity to question one’s identity, culture, roots…
