Water Odyssey

Lake Geneva - Fjord of the Alps

Lake Geneva – Fjord of the Alps" (Switzerland/France), the first episode of the "Water Odyssey" (Norway/Svalbard/Bhutan) is moving forward. We now have 14 partners and much of the filming has been completed, although the film won’t be finished until this spring (broadcast on RTS, Switzerland’s national TV station). Here is a new and extended teaser, a short voyage through the magnificent countryside around Lake Geneva, in the heart of the Alps and the Jura.
