Men and women who are always looking for new sporting challenges and want to meet these challenges.
in the untamed encounter with wild nature and find themselves. Whether surfing, flying wingsuits, biking, freeriding, skating, mountain biking or kayaking, all these athletes are constantly pushing their performances and facing new challenges. Nuit de la Glisse – „Addicted to Life“ is a collage of extreme sports film segments and characters, connected by a strong narrative strand and a common story

We want to emphasize even more strongly the cinematic quality, which is our trademark.
The use of new technologies such as 4k drones and on-board cameras help us to achieve this,
to share the athlete’s sporting achievements, the beautiful landscape shots and the athlete’s entire experience directly with the spectator. And as close as possible,“says director Thierry Donard.

Nuit de la Glisse – „Addicted to Life“ tells the story of unbelievable sporting exploits: from months of, sometimes years of waiting for one moment,
the perfect giant wave or the steep mountain top has fallen on fresh powder snow.
This resulted in photographs that are unparalleled in intensity and authentic pictorial power.

Director Donard once again inspires us with a feature film that lets the audience participate in the athletes‘ attitude to life, their desire to feel themselves and their unbridled love for their sport. This is not always about maximum success. Failure is part of this love and the search for the next perfect stunt. Thierry Donard’s films have become an institution for extreme sports fans who can really savour the power of extreme sports on the big screen.
