A wild road
About a hundred thousand European cranes make an annual migration between Northern Europe and Africa along a so called » eastern » corridor. A wild and invisible road on humans maps.
A cultural share
That animals migration connect men's territories and these ancient paths have formed the first global network.
This film will be the story of adventurers who will meet the different populations throughout their journey. The migratory bird will be the first topic of discussion, a way to establish a first link and then discover each culture.
Behind the project
In 2011, we have directed a first documentary film about the migration of common cranes from Sweden to Spain : "Frogs on the roof". Aired on french TV, rewared in film festivals, we have to continue our adventure. We wanted to talk to people who don't know nature, to people who would not even have the idea to watch a documentary film.
A nomadic documentary
At a time when some people have to emigrate to survive while others erect walls to protect themselves,
we have chosen to elaborate a freedom experience shared by all
Free like a crane
Independant wildlife and social documentary, following the migration of a mythic bird
