The title , 6885, refers to the Ojos Del Salado which at 6885 metres is one of the highest trekking summits on Earth.
The movie tells how a climber flies to Chile to climb it. The experience of physical suffering in high altitudes coincides with the bitter ending of a romantic relationship which he finds difficult to accept.
During the long way to the top of the mountain he finally comes to terms with it. The poetry of the words and the beauty of the landscapes contributes to a very intimate love story in the heart of the Andes.
Emmanuel Dubois is a member of the French Federation of Independent Filmmakers (FFCV). When he is not producing films and climbing mountains, he works as a software engineer for Freescale Semiconductors in Toulouse, France.
Emmanuel has travelled around the world since the age of twenty with his camcorder as a faithful companion. His destinations are often chosen for the beauty of their mountain ranges and the authenticity of their inhabitants. His films deal with the vulnerability and smallness of human beings in gigantic rocky landscapes such as the Atacama desert in Chile.
Since 1993, he has made several video reports in Scotland, Ecuador, Peru, Central African Republic, South Africa, Ladakh, Ethiopia ... most of them screened and awarded prizes in French film festivals.
His first fiction La voie du milieu (The Middle Way) featuring rock-climbers in the Vercors range in France, won an International Medallion and Best Camerawork prize at BIAFF 2005.
