Nuit de la Glisse TV

Aux quatre coins de la planète, de Chamonix Mont-Blanc à la Polynésie Française en passant par Châtel, les Alpes Suisses, les Pyrénées ou encore le désert espagnol d’Alméria, le nouveau film de La Nuit De La Glisse « Addicted to Life » relate les prouesses isolées d’athlètes passionnés au coeur de milieux naturels sauvages et menacés. Une rencontre singulière au plus près d’hommes et de femmes habitués à repousser leurs limites dans des environnements extrêmes. En quête de nouveaux défis et de sensations uniques, ils passent leur vie à arpenter des terrains de jeu hors norme.

À travers montagnes et océans, ils sont les témoins des changements climatiques qui modifient notre environnement et qui impactent les éléments naturels. De la fonte des neiges éternelles aux barrières de corail qui se meurent, la pollution menaçante change les couleurs en toile de fond de notre éco système global. Des performances extraordinaires, à l’expérience de sensations exceptionnelles, ces athlètes touchent le rêve de millions d’hommes et pourtant, au coeur de ce lourd tribut que subit la planète aucun d’eux ne sait si dans 10 ans, la prochaine génération de « free riders » bénéficiera de ces mêmes privilèges. Une aventure à travers le globe qui immortalise les histoires, les accomplissements, les joies et les peines de ces héros des temps modernes.

La Nuit de la Glisse was started at the end of the '70s by a group of visionaries who contributed to the social phenomenon called 'la glisse' (action sports). Over the last thirty years La Nuit de la Glisse has become a benchmark for these kinds of sports.

Audiences are introduced to emerging sports and witness developments to existing ones through these totally original films, whisking them around the world through sublime landscapes alongside the world’s best athletes.

From church halls, beachside shrines and conference centres on to the most prestigious theatres in Europe and multiplex cinemas, La Nuit de la Glisse has found a unique place in the hearts and minds of its fans. From 16mm to digital film, its longevity and development have depended on bringing picture quality and the philosophy of man to the big screen.

Director Thierry Donard: "My passion for filmmaking has never faltered. "La Nuit de la Glisse" was started by a group of skier and surfer friends, the title first came out in 1984. I’ve always tried to convey to the audience what the athletes feel, to give an insight into the personalities of the men and women who are so passionate about their discipline and to capture their deepest emotions when living in the moment. Highlighting their ecological outlook and community-based life is also important to me so including this human aspect is essential to my films. This is maybe the reason why they have been so successful."
