One Step Beyond takes us behind the scenes for a close up look at the lives of people involved in extreme sports.
Géraldine Fasnacht, world-renowned snowboarder and base jumper, invites us into the small and close-knit community of today’s real life supermen - wingsuit flyers... We join her on a rollercoaster ride across the full spectrum of human emotions, catapulting from total euphoria to devastating loss, living life at full force and in glorious technicolour. Until one day, out of nowhere, a dramatic event changes the course of Géraldine’s life and forces her to reconsider her chosen path.
In the face of tragedy, she decides to pick herself up and get back on the ride, to be swept up in a whirlwind of adrenaline.
This bare bones, honest account gives us a window into the lives of ordinary men and women who have chosen to take an extraordinary path in life.
Director SEB MONTAZ
Father, mountain guide, ski instructor, filmmaker (born 23rd March 1975, France)
Seb became interested in filmmaking after filming clients on mountain excursions working as a mountain guide. In just a couple of years he has evolved from producing a small internet snow report every couple of weeks on the Chamonix valley, to projects like the recent film ‘I Believe I Can Fly’. As an athlete himself, he is able to film in situations that most can’t, and can accompany the people he films in what they’re doing. He strives to bring people extraordinary stories about real people, shown from their point of view.
