Alla vita

Director Statement
Silke Pan is a para-cycling athlete. When she calls me for her new high level sport challenge, the Pyrenean Raid in handbike in 10 days, making a bike movie celebrating her achievements is not  my first wish. To make an intimate portrait on a road movie background seems to me the right  direction to reach a wide audience. 
Making this film is also a way to talk about paraplegia, which I didn’t know in details at the time. 
For Silke, it's not just about not being able to walk again. Her whole body makes her suffer, she  lost the taste, the smell, she has constant neurogenic pain,... 
What is hiding behind her strong mental power ? What does disability implies in realizing a 
challenge ? How does she live with her aching body ? How does this acrobat reclaims her body 
that used to be mastered ?

Coline Confort is a French movie director born in 1998. She now studies in Switzerland ECAL (Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne). 
She shoot To Life (Alla Vita) in 2018, with the paracyclist Silke Pan.
