When Locals Show You Where to Freeride Ski, They Don't Disappoint | A La Française, Ep. 1

a documentary in French

http://www.epictv.com

Amazing landscapes, fresh and untracked powder and lines that will blow your mind - that's what happens when a local shows you where to go.

Freeride skiers Aymeric Cloerec, Bertrand Clair and Guillaume Harleaux were looking for good snow conditions early in the winter, so they decided to head to the only place with snow - the Pyrénées - and its famous "Pic du Midi" at the Grand Tourmalet.

They met with local rider, Manu Bonniot, and discovered a huge backyard for incredible and breathtaking freeride skiing in an unforgettable landscape. The snow was perfect, the sun shining and the riders at the top of their game - and so ensued three perfect days of at the Top of the Pyrénées!

Thanks to all the staff of the Grand Tourmalet - Pic du Midi for their welcome!

Director: Yves Thollon
Video Producer: Epic TV
Athletes: Aymeric Cloerec, Bertrand Clair, Guillaume Harleux, Manu Bonniot

Treasure

a narrative film in English

Synopsis:

Out of prison and on the dole Adam is determined to rekindle his relationship with Francis, his son. His efforts are hampered by his estranged partner Laura, who is far from delighted that Adam is back on the scene. Frustrated with his life in Skelmersdale, Adam makes a drastic decision and takes to the road with Francis in tow, funding their adventure via a violent robbery. Adam hides the reality of his actions from Francis by spinning a childish fantasy for his son; insisting that they are pirates in search of buried treasure. But when Francis gets homesick the fantasy begins to wear thin and Adam's love for his child drags him back to Skelmersdale to face the music.

34x25x36

a documentary in English

The third installment in BODY TYPED, a trilogy (including THE GUARANTEE and the Sundance award-winning WET DREAMS AND FALSE IMAGES) examining notions of physical perfection. In 34x25x36, we visit the Patina V Mannequin Factory where the artistry, craft and marketing that go into creating "the ideal woman of the moment"--in plastic--are accompanied by a remarkable amount of reflection on just what that ideal means. The designer hearkens back to the roots of his craft not only in French 19th-century wax figures but also in the religious icons of medieval times.
Provocative and informative, the film premiered at the SXSW film festival, and director, Jesse Epstein, was recently named to Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film.
