Walk the Ridge, from filmmaker Mathieu Le Lay, is a short film that aims to share the deep feelings one can experience while hiking in the mountains. Le Lay spent several days hiking four mountain peaks in the French Alps with his friend Benjamin Dowie, and said he captured one of the most outstanding mountain views he's ever seen.
