Catherine Destivelle, Beyond the Summits

Catherine Destivelle is one of the world's best climbers, famous for her record-breaking career. For the first time, she will take us on three spectacular climbs in the Alps. During the ascents, she will share with us the sense of freedom and passion that the mountains inspire and the pleasure of reaching the summits. More than an intimate portrait of Catherine, the film sheds light on the close relationships that develop between climbers and the special connections made in mountaineering.

Breathtaking and beautifully shot, the film unveils the magnificent Alpine environment and the immensity of the soaring rock faces. Through Destivelle's eyes, we will have the opportunity to see the mountain as never before and will feel like we are climbing up with her.
