NOMADES DE LA VERTICALE
France / 1988 / 26'
The documentary is about the journey and climbs by a group of young French people accompanied by two very sporting local Bedouins who bravely follow them on the high rocks rising in the Wadi Rum Desert in southern Jordan. The climbers discover new places, imbued with the long standing spirit of the mountaineer who never forgets his vocation as an explorer. The Bedouins equip themselves with slings and books but leave behind their rifles. The young people are in no serious danger on the rock faces so they enjoy the climbs and discover interesting places to carry out their favourite sport.
