And suddenly men and birds became one ... These dwarf geese threatened with disappearance, which, every morning, fly over ponds and marshes, Christian decided to save them. He made it his fight. tired by the city and its infernal rhythm, he left everything to settle in a farmhouse in the Camargue, in the middle of nature, among the birds. This is where he hatches his plan, in secret, on the verge of legality. A crazy project: to get goslings used to the sound of a microlight from the incubator, one day to fly with them in a squadron on a new migratory route, sheltered from dangers. In pursuing this immense dream, Christian must face the hostility of his son, Thomas, whose landscape is limited to his computer screen. until the day when the rebellious teenager lets himself be moved by these goslings who become infatuated with him to the point of taking him for their father or their mother. For Christian and his son, it is the return of a lost bond and the beginning of the great journey, from Scandinavia to the Camargue. But both are far from imagining the perils that await them ... Inspired by an incredible true story, that of Christian Moullec, Donne-moi des vents is not only a great adventure novel : it is a cry of alarm against the disappearance of millions of birds in the world.
Adventurer, writer, filmmaker, Nicolas Vanier himself flew with geese. After this overwhelming journey, he decided to bring this story to the screen. An event film that will hit theaters on October 9, 2019.
