71° loneliness North (53 mn)

A lone woman skiing and pulling her sled across Lapland in winter

“My name is Nathalie.
I get on my skis in Ivalo, Finland.
I load up my sled and I welcome, with a grimacing pleasure, on my shoulders and the small of my back, its 71 kilos of gear.
All my life fits in there, and will, for the two and half months to come. I put in that too, I know, my doubts and hopes.
I hope not to loose them on the way, my hopes, but maybe the way shall make them real. Make me real. This adventure is also about loneliness, anxiety and euphoria, details of a nature buried under snow, lethargy, a place where the slightest jolt feels like an effervescence.
I wish to demystify the idea that nature is there only hostile.
I’m probably also willing to show that with the suitable preparation, many projects are feasible, which seem downright inaccessible.
As a nobody I want to reach the North Cape and then ski down along the Scandinavian spine, in full autonomy, and before the spring melts out.
71 kilos. 71 days. 71° north.
And more than 1200 kilometers of ice and snow to cover.”

The operating theater

The operating theater is a documentary film on the initiation rites of an apprentice surgeon in the operating block at a university hospital. To witness the steps of this process is to discover a strange and foreign world in which we are transient guests. The operating block is a microcosm nestled in the heart of the hospital machine. There, surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical technologists, nurses and aids mend lives daily. Chronicles of death and human ingenuity, ambition and pettiness, generosity, fear and black humor are written here. The operating theater stages the vital substance of life.
