A film in project to retrace the epic of the HCA in the Swiss Cup

“Vouivre or die”: this is the title of the film project on the victory of HC Ajoie in the Swiss Ice Hockey Cup. Basile Sanglard from the production company Tagada Prod has been carrying the idea since he shot the images of February 2, 2020. Faced with the scale of the event, Ajoulot believes that behind this finale, it is an episode of the history of the canton which has been written. He also draws the parallel between the 50 years of the Jura and the 50 years of the HCA. “There really was something else to talk about, it wasn’t just sport,” according to the co-producer who is moved every time he sees the images of the Rauracienne sung in the Vaudoise Arena: “The pride of a whole people who had gone to Lausanne to make themselves heard. » Many people told him that it reminded them of the years of embers of the creation of the canton of Jura. It is on this aspect of identity that the documentary will focus: “We will use the mirror of sport to tell the story of an entire people. »

Pierre Morath in support

The first thoughts date from February 3, 2020. Since then, the project has matured in the minds of Basile Sanglard, co-director and co-producer, and Gauthier Corbat, co-writer and co-producer. The two Ajoulots approached Pierre Morath. The Genevan, director of “Free to run”, agreed to participate in the adventure as co-writer and co-director. He brings a professional touch to this project, which is in the writing phase. Fundraising has also begun. Basile Sanglard articulates a budget of around half a million francs,

A first level of 60,000 francs must be reached in order to finalize a pre-project which will make it possible to request funding from, for example, the Office of Culture. /ncp
