Short film 16’18 min

Our challenge and desire when working on TEN METER TOWER has been to capture precise images of people in a vulnerable state, a situation strong enough that it could work without a classical story frame. In our films, which we often call studies, we want to give priority to describe humans rather than telling a story about them.

We asked 43 people who had never been on a ten meter diving tower before to climb to its edge. By producing these images of human doubt and courage we want to approach the evolutionary instincts and social games that have formed us to this date.
