Private Project


In love with images and the cold, the wildlife photographer Jérémie Villet travels alone through the white deserts of the northern hemisphere with his pulka and his telephoto lens, looking for animals that survive in extreme cold.

During his upcoming expedition in the Canadian North, Jérémie is about to explore the wild and extreme Yukon region, with the ultimate goal of photographing the legendary mountain goat. The difficulty of access to the mountain territories where this animal evolves and the freezing temperatures will make the task challenging.

Carried by adventures and unique human and animal encounters, this documentary allows us to enter the photographer's intimacy and to approach with delicacy this changing world.

Director Biography - Mathieu Le Lay

Mathieu Le Lay is a film director and cinematographer based in the French Alps. His work is authentic, geographically diverse, visceral, yet consistently visually stunning and poetic.

After he graduated in Wildlife Conservation at the University of Salford (UK), his insatiable love for nature, cinema and wildlife led him to one year study at IFFCAM, the French wildlife film school.

Since 2008, his films tell genuine stories of the interaction between humans and nature, inspiring people to connect with our natural world.

Inspiration is the key in Mathieu's creativity. Beyond the use of natural lights to create evocative atmospheres, he has developed creative and technical skills to shoot documentary films, in some of the most remote and harshest environments of our planet. His biggest priviledge as an author is being to work on subjects that fascinate him, and drive him to bring emotional and visual depth to his films.

His work has been recognised multiple times in international film festivals focused on nature, mountain, wildlife and adventure thematics.
