Altaitude

Everything is bigger in the Altai, the mountainous frontier between Mongolia, China, and Russia. This is what Damian and Dom discover there, skiing the high summits for three weeks and enduring early spring storms.
Opening up to the vastness, they must overcome their differences and learn to survive together, totally isolated at their high-altitude base camp – a tiny yurt in an expansive terrain of snow.
While in “The Nahanni Whisperer” movie Dom played the role of the “whisperer” for 4 youngsters facing the immensity of the Canadian wilderness, the roles are reversed here. Damien, once liberated from the electronic appendages of his time, immediately enters into resonance with the Altai Mountains of the Tavan Bogd, the Five Saints. It is he who opens the door to the sacred dimension of these places and the interaction that its inhabitants nurture with them.

A film by Dominique Snyers with French dialogues subtitled in English. More info on altaitude.com

The Power of Dreams

Belgian teen, Arthur Fievet, was as active and outdoorsy as you’ve ever met. Then, with a broken back and paralysed from the waist down he suddenly finds his wish-list of adventures cut short. Months of intensive physio slowly brings back the faintest use of his legs but he can barely even stagger forward a few steps with all his weight on two crutches. Arthur cannot accept that his days of adventure are over and plans an ambitious expedition in the north of Alaska with his brother, a friend and two experienced adventurers.

“The Power of Dreams” is the English version of the “Le Pouvoir des Rêves” a film by François-Xavier De Ruydts produced by Triangle7.
