Telenovela à l'Everest (Telenovela on Everest)



20 min

This film features the ascent of Everest via its northern ridge by Facundo Arana, an Argentinian actor, very famous around the world for his roles in telenovelas. The story is told by the actor himself, his guide Tendi Sherpa and Swiss cameraman Nicolas Bossard. The story is intended to be as close as possible to the reality of life on the slopes of this sacred mountain. It is a three-dimensional perspective, between the dream of the summit, the management of the expedition and the execution of camerawork: a different view on commercial expeditions to Everest with unique images taken at over 8,800m above sea level.

Some of Bossard’s high altitude ascents have included paragliding descents, one expression of his passion for snowboarding, paragliding, wingsuits and all flying machines. His future projects included bringing the wingsuit for jump projects in Nepal at over 7,000m.
