This film explains the unbelievable curse of the skydivers : the formation, the disciplines, and their life experiences.
A particular universe
Since I was young, I always loved the aerial world. Flying is an old dream of man. Then, during a walk near an airport of Lyon, I saw some fellows who jumped from a perfectly working aircraft. Why ? What did they feel ?
I wanted to describe the ambience, the life of the club, the spirit of the skydivers, in the authentic and real way. It was important for me to keep a spectator eye, without pre-made judgement, and to make the spectator feel the atmosphere that reigns in this community.
My main discovery at the beginning of the shooting was the family ambience that was in place in the club. Skydivers always say that this is their second family. They are like sky brothers.
To get involved in this universe, I had to jump. I made my AFF formation and began to jump. It was an incredible experience. Sensations are unique, wonderful, and I better understand why this sport is their « drug ».
