Documentary / 17min
Two men in their sixties spend day and night in a camper. They hunt meteorological balloons coming down to earth. These objects don’t have a value for the scientists anymore, but do become the reason for a treasure hunt. For my documentary film "Hunters" I had the pleasure to meet two men with an adventurous spirit. They share a peculiar activity that depends on wind. I sometimes had the impression to film grown children.
The three hunters of... "hunters" don't have guns but they take us on a poetic journey to hunt the weather probe! Benjmain Bucher follows them in their absurd, harmless and good-natured quest. He offers us a film outside of the economy, a stroll off the beaten path, a short moment of pure gratuity. And it is precious.
