Synopsis: Virgile has been nearly everywhere, or so it seems. Long distance travels on the bike in Africa, hitchiking thourgh the Russian continent, on trains in Asia… he knows it all. Yet there’s one place left where he didn’t experience adventure: his home… The Jura mountains in France. He thus launch himself on a new quest: local exploration. In the middle of winter, on skis and pulling a snowsled, he shall explore his own homeland, meet its most charismatic characters, learn, experiment, and prove to himself that real adventure doesn’t need to be looked for on the other side of the planet. Nope, it awaits where the mind is ready to seek and unveil it.

Director's Statement

The opportunity to make this film came around as I was releasing ‘One Step Aside‘, the first episode of my serie dedicated to local adventures: it so happent that my mate Virgile, an experienced globetraveller himself, wanted to do more or less the same thing in the area where he was born, the Jura mountains and asked me to be his filmmaker. He set up a great project with a vision of the Jura range as a distant brother of the Alaska mountains, arranging for us to meet locals and share with them adventurous moments of outdoor activities as well as documenting the local and traditionnal heritages. With a great sense of humour and tirelessly roaming the area, Virgile launched himself on board this adventure, a wide grim of satisfaction never leaving his face. I had to portray this incredible guy re-discovering his own birthplace with the eyes of a kid on christmas day. We aimed the film at being the reflect of this all: Virgile’s love for the land of his childhood; the fun and excitement of exploring outdoor areas close to our home; the joy of navigating through winter in the silence of the forest… – See more at: http://www.planeted.eu/videos-films/france-country-for-adventures/jor-jura-ski-pulka/#sthash.4va8tcer.dpuf
