The weight of the Antarctic

Located on the coast of Adélie Land, the Cap Prud'homme science base is like a little world outside our world that houses a few dozen people during the austral summer. Scientists, logisticians, mechanics, a cook and doctor form a small society whose common project is to advance science. Vincent is a glaciologist, he has been part of this community for ten years. This documentary will follow him in his activities and try to identify the strengths, beauty and fragility of the commitment of these men who live at the end of the world.
