    FIFAV Night at Châtelaillon-Plage
    The FIFAV, Festival International du Film et du Livre d'Aventure, invites you to Châtelaillon-Plage from 6pm on Friday March 29. On the bill: 3 screenings of films "in" and "out" of competition, to be discovered on the big screen and in books, and whose screening or presentation is extended by a meeting with those who have lived these always thrilling adventures.

    6:00 pm: Screening of the film "L'Ecole du Ciel" - 1h15
    Three friends have a common dream: to travel by air, independently and without motorized means! A chance meeting with a paragliding enthusiast makes the project a reality. After accelerated training, the team set off to cross the Pyrenees, from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, "walking and flying". Despite careful preparation, an accident sends them back to their beginner's condition. As they walk, they return to their textbooks: chance encounters, nature and the sky. By dint of self-sacrifice, they envisage taking off from the highest wilderness peaks, a project unthinkable at the start of the adventure. Together, they gain height and question the meaning of the word "freedom".

    7:30pm: Film screening of "Baluchon 4 mètres autour du monde" - 45min
    It's the dream of a lifetime, as Yann Quenet builds a tiny boat in his garage to cross the planet. The story of a circumnavigation on a 4-meter hull. In all simplicity, far from any spirit of performance. Without technology or comfort. The authenticity of a great sailor who ignores himself. The story of a solo sailor who opens up to others when he takes to the sea. The film, like the voyage, takes on its bumps and scratches. In the service of an encounter with a personality that is literally out of the ordinary.


    9:15pm: "Via Sedna" film screening - 1:30am - Guest speaker with discussion at the end of the screening: Marta Guemes
    It was during a social project that Caro North and Marta Guemes had the opportunity to work together, one as a mountain guide, the other as a navigator. They soon realized that they shared the same passion for great adventures and expeditions into the unknown. They began to dream of an expedition unlike anything they had experienced before. They wanted to sail with a 100% all-female team, from France through the harsh Arctic seas to Greenland, where the climbers would open up a new Big Wall route. It would take them another two years to put in place the preparations and logistics, find the funding and assemble the team of three intrepid climbers, four experienced navigators and an outstanding film-maker. Finally, the eight young women set sail from La Rochelle, but they soon realized that Sedna, the Inuit goddess of the seas, was going to put them to the test. It's a story of patience, determination, trust and, above all, the bond that unites these extraordinary women with their unfailing sense of humor.
