La vague d’espoir d’Ismaël

A film by Catherine Monfajon. Production: Via Découvertes Production. Diffusion: France 3 Thalassa. France – 15’ – 2011.

Ismaël Guilliorit has a handsome face, a charismatic personality and is missing a leg. In addition to being a great surfer, he founded years ago an association called “Vagdespoir” (wave of hope) which aims at helping disabled individuals to discover and enjoy the joys of board sports. The purpose of this association isn’t the competition but the quest for a new sparkle in the eyes of those who go beyond their human limits.
