– SPECIAL JURY AWARD

9 mins, Director Guillaume Broust, France, subtitles.

In 2020, Julia Chanourdie joined the very exclusive club of climbers who have conquered the French grade of 9b (NZ grade 37). She became only the third woman (and first Frenchwoman) to complete a route at this level of difficulty. Her accomplishment generated a minor frenzy in the sport climbing world, and thrust the young climber from Annecy into the media spotlight worldwide.
