EDGE OF REASON
While Benjamin Védrines continues to enter the highest level of mountaineering with his recent feat in the Jorasses, this film relates his first trip to 8,000 m on Broad Peak in Pakistan. An extraordinary physical challenge in which the mountaineer once again shows himself to be a rocket scientist with a rapid ascent in one day, and a descent by paraglider at the end. A meticulously prepared record that was close to the athlete's heart, the culmination of several years of preparation for this guide from the Hautes-Alpes.

Director : Jérémie Chenal
With : Benjamin Védrines and Nicolas Jean
