B. horský a horolezecký film / Režie: Mathieu Le Lay / Země: Francie / Délka: 53 min.
In the Starlight is an intimate portrait exploring the passionate spirit of the Canadian outdoor photographer Paul Zizka. Through individualistic and distinctive photographies, Paul specializes in images of the Canadian Rockies, adventurous pursuits and hard-to-reach places. Most of his photographs are taken in the mountain environment, during the darkest hours of the night under star-filled skies. While going on new astrophography adventures, Paul tries to balance family, travel and work as one of his biggest challenges. For his forthcoming expedition to Greenland, Paul hopes to capture the northern lights in one of the most impressive and rugged mountain area of Southern Greenland.

He has a personal style, a visual poetry that feeds the soul with images of rare beauty and a feeling of freedom. His art and his intimate quest are strongly connected. Guided by wild environments and mysterious atmospheres, his films tell genuine stories of the interaction between humans and nature, inspiring people to travel, discover and feel the raw subtlety of the world.
