“We’re not Gandhi or Greta sir.” “How do you know?”
Disengaged, apathetic and despondent; nobody expects much from the SEGPA* students at this high school in Chamonix. Little do they know that their school year is about to take an unexpected turn.
Alain, a former mountain guide turned teacher, decides to risk everything for a chance at inspiration and leads his students on an audacious day trip into the heart of a colossal glacier beneath the towering Mont Blanc.
Not only are the students awe-struck by the glacier’s majesty, but they embark on a mission to save it from the imminent threat of melting. With this new purpose and against everyone’s advice, they will do anything in their power to make the impossible happen.
The Snow Must Go On is a joyous coming-of-age film about finding meaning in life at any stage. Combining breathtaking visuals, best experienced on the big screen, with a winning blend of humour and heart, it is an inspirational film about the next generation standing-up to preserve the natural world no matter how impossible the odds, how fierce the opposition or how outlandish the plan.

“A sympathetic eco-fable, starring Clovis Cornillac as Professor Keating (from Dead Poets Society) from Haute-Savoie.” Télérama
