Urban Paragliding With Jean-Baptiste Chandelier

I went (tandem) paragliding once. It was off Lion’s Head in Cape Town and was one of the most serene experiences ever. French paragliding pilot Jean-Baptiste Chandelier knows that feeling and experiences many more I bet as he takes to the skies in and around urban areas in Peru, Chile, and France.

Have a look at his Chandelier’s lofty adventures in Urban Side.

I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies)

I Believe I can Fly is a 40-minute documentary directed by indie filmmaker Sébastien Montaz-Rosset. The film follows two French adrenaline seekers Tancrede and Julien as they travel to lofty heights in the Norwegian fjords. The pair are there for a spot of rock climging, BASE jumping, and highlining, a form of tightrope walking that is done at vertigo-inducing heights. Highlining is often done without the use of a fall leash.

Montaz-Rosset follows their progress at the awe-inspiring location and what follows is an excerpt from his documentary.

I Believe I can Fly is to be made available for download at the very specific time of 11:00 on 11.11.11. Look out for it on Montaz-Rosset’s blog.
