Beyond Human Limits 3x52' by Charlie Buffet, Nicolas Gabriel & Florence Tran


Based on true stories, with re-enactments and 3-D medical imagery, "Beyond Human Limits" recounts adventures of scientists who have risked their lives to explore the limits of their bodies when confronted to extreme conditions:

Hypoxia : Dr. Jaeger tested his resistance to hypoxia, the lack of oxygen, by living two months at an altitude of 6,700 meters.

Cold : Dr. Cauchy was trapped for a whole night outdoors in extreme weather.

Time isolation : Michel Siffre spent two months beneath the earth's surface without any time landmarks. He discovered the existence of an "internal clock" and his experiments gave birth to a new science: chrono biology.
