Pause and Listen to the Silence

Short documentary film, 2018, France, 26 min.
Director: Malleret Pierre



While pedaling across the Uyuni Salt Flats, I heard the sound of the salt, cracking beneath my wheels. After finishing a pass, the wind would whistle through the hood of my jacket, as I flew downhill. On the winding, desert tracks of South Lipez, my bags gently tapped against my bike. In some moments, the music in my headphones would amplify the joy of simply moving forward. But when I would stop for a pause, in the high altitudes of the Andes, a wave of pure silence, and the sensation of feeling all alone in the world would overcome me.
Live the adventure of a solitary journey by bicycle, from Lima to Santiago. Soar through the skies with incredible drone footage of the otherworldly South American landscapes, paired with the contemplative soundtrack I composed, inspired by my travels.
