“I Believe I Can Fly” is a beautifully shot documentary about the Skyliners, a team of French adventurers who specialize in highline tightrope walking, basejumping, and mountaineering (trailer). The film is directed by Sébastien Montaz-Rosset. It can be purchased as a download on his website.
I have been filming the Skyliners on an incredible exploration into the world of free flight.
Tancrède, Julien, Seb and Antoine are pioneers in ‘highlining’ – a vertiginous combination of climbing, slackline and tightrope walking.
We travelled from our home in Chamonix to our training ground in the Verdon gorge, testing the limits for our ultimate goal…
We rigged highlines on the skyscrapers of Paris, and finally came to the spectacular cliffs and fjords of Norway.
Months of training led the Skyliners team to attempt their dream of complete freedom… the freedom of flight!
