Loic and the Flolopapys
Synopsis: Step out of your comfort zone and face your fears. Twenty two year old Loic has become a passionate climber after having received his first pair of climbing shoes at age six. Together with Florian, Pablo and Pierre, they form the inseparable “Flolopapys”, bringing their energy and good vibes to the farthest reaches of the climbing world. Although each is unique, they compliment and support each other like a band of brothers. You’ll fall under the spell of their humor, friendship and fragility. But can Loic use the Flolopapys energy to overcome his haunting fear of heights as he confronts some of the toughest climbs on the planet? Loic and the Flolopapys invite you to embark on a very human adventure.
Wide-open spaces and enthusiastic people have always fascinated me. The faces of the Flolopapys in action simply glow. This film gives them the floor. The questions they ask are universal, and the emotions with which they experience them are truly touching. There is so much to learn when you step out of your comfort zone and confront your fears.
