La planète blanche

a film by Jean Lemire, Thierry Piantanida and Thierry Ragobert

I am a great admirer of David Attenborough & Co. work. Now, forget Attenborough. This film is something completely different. Its point is not to give you amazing facts but make you to fall in love with the White Planet. It is not as much documentary as poetry.

This DVD comes with two short “making of” documentaries which are both well worth watching, especially the making of the music. It is fascinating to see the score by Bruno Coulais (who composed the music for such movies as Microcosmos and Coraline) evolving, in collaboration with Jorane and native Inuit singers, into a weird and beautiful soundtrack.
