LES DRAPEAUX DU DHAULAGIRI
France / 1990 / 26'
In the autumn of 1989 the Groupe Militaire de Haute Montagne of the French army attempts to scale Dhaulagiri. The late monsoon prolongs the bad weather on the mountain especially at camp two and three. An avalanche hits four mountaineers, two Frenchman and two Sherpas. The latter are never found. The film is an X-ray of the state of mind and the relationship between the members in the various stages of the expedition.
