TOUT LE MONDE ATTEND LE MAILLOT JAUNE

- English subtitles available by clicking on 'CC' -
TOUT LE MONDE ATTEND LE MAILLOT JAUNE (Everyone is waiting for the yellow jersey) is a documentary project about the spectators of the Tour de France in the countryside. The Tour de France has always been a celebration of the magnificience of its very beautiful rural areas. Against the background of the increasing urban-rural divide the look into a world, that metropolitans have difficulties to imagine and find very desirable at the same time, is exciting in many respects. -> Project website

FÜR EINEN MOMENT (ONE MOMENT IN TIME)

ONE MOMENT IN TIME is the observation of a high dive. We see a professional diver in montage parallel with children at the age of six to ten years, who are about to learn high-diving.
