Voyage to the End of Winter
Voyage au bout de l’hiver | Anne Lapied, Erik Lapied, 2010
France | 77 minutes

French wildlife cinematographers Anne and Erik Lapied spent a winter in the heart of the Gran Paradiso National Park, high in the Italian Alps, in the hopes of photographing elusive animals–chamois, ibexes, hares, eagles, foxes, lammergeiers and others. This disarming story about their unusual, humbling winter alone in the mountains is pure and poetic, but the poetry becomes dangerous and the mountains turn sinister when a huge snowstorm dumps meters on their small hamlet. As avalanches crash down around them, they continue to capture images of nature and show how the animals cope–or perish–during a harsh winter.
