World Premiere
55 minutes, Belgium – Mountain Sport
Nov 3 - Nov 8 – $10 CAD

Two of the most experienced paragliding pilots engage in exploration of the Spiti Valley in the Indian Himalaya. Thomas de Dorlodot, a multiple world record holder, leads Horacio Llorens, a six-time aerobatic world champion, to find out why few have tried to fly in this place where, according to local folklore, the gods live. Mountains brush against sky and glaciated peaks rise up to 6,500 metres high. Arid, dry, and rocky landscapes produce violent aerial conditions and their remoteness makes oxygen supplies impossible. Despite risks, the athletes take us on an exhilarating scenic discovery of this unique valley and the sky beyond.
