“Sur le fils des 4000,” directed by Gilles Chappaz , took the Grand Prize at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. The film follows the adventure of Patrick Bérhault and Phillippe Magnin as they attempted to link all 82 of the Alps' 4000-meter peaks in winter conditions. Bérhault fell to his death on the attempt. “This film is about a beautiful adventure shared by two friends,” says festival jury member Laurence Gouault. “It shows their passion, love, and respect for the mountains and allows us to share the last journey of a great climber.”
