A story that recounts the human drama of an extreme skie, Giorgio Passino, who after months of training with his best friend, Stefando DeBenedetti, having reached a summit, discovers that the layer of snow is not enough to give the second skier the minmum of safety that makes these ventures exploits and not an attempt at suicide. At the same time the cine-cameras follow the slow transformation of the mountain face over the seasons until an umpteenth snowfall makes conditions right. Having reached the peak at Aiguille Blanche, the friend is given honour and risk of the first descent on the snow and ice slopes.
Michele Radici is an enthusiastic sportsman, specialising in filming extreme sports and adventures. He has produced various documentaries on flight (aerial acrobatics, hang-gliding and parachute sports), skin diving (potholing and archaeological diving, sharks) and the mountains (women’s free climbing, exploring in Venezuela, extreme skiing) for Canale 5 and the Istituto Luce in Rome. He participated at the Trento Filmfestival in 1986 with "La parete che non c'è” , in 1988 with "The Time Machine" (made with Stefano De Benedetti) and in 1990 with "Face To Face" (made with Anthony Hoffmann). In 1991 he presented "Carnatic: la nave senza volto".
In 2008 he translated an old book written by Bridwell (by now impossible to find) and wrote part of the new book “The Bird” on the life and feats of Jim Bridwell, updated with the latest ascents, together with Giovanni Groaz. In 2009 he produced and directed a split-screen film for the Upper Valdigne on Courmayeur and neighbouring municipalities. In the same year he was a member of the jury at the Trento Film Festival.
