This film was made not for speleologists, but for all those outside who ask themselves: how do they manage to breathe? Aren’t they afraid of getting stuck? What do they do down there? Why? Films about potholing often talk about caves: the discovery of a cave, the unblocking of a cave, the joining up of a cave, or the mysteries and peculiarities of a particular cave. They rarely talk about potholers: who are these strange individuals who explore an upside-down world?
A cameraman, photographer and director, he studied film in Brussels. An enthusiastic fan of trekking, climbing, canyoning and potholing, he decided to combine his job and his passion, dealing mainly with filming and editing. For 9 years he covered the ESA CAVES training programme for astronauts as cameraman, director and team leader.
