Dragon is not only the name of the mythical animal terrorizing our children. It’s also the name given to the helicopters of the Securité civile (Civil Security) which mission is to rescue people stranded in inaccessible and isolated places. Flying the Dragon 06, the helicopter based in Cannes (in the Alpes-Maritimes region) is entrusted to the « Sky rescue workers ». Who are these men? Pilots, mecanics, paramedics, physicians, and mountain experts form the team. On call 24/7, they stay close to the red and yellow helicopter. Nicolas Moscara and Quentin Wardavoir followed them during a whole summer, between Cannes and the Italian border.
Civil security base in Bastia near the Borgo airport is one of the most active base during summer. From June to September, its yellow and red helicopter has around 400 emergency missions in North of Corsica, in the moutains, in the sea, in the city, in the small towns in the outback and on the roads. Its team is composed of a doctor and specialists chosen for each specific missions. We have also followed a team of mountaineers who look after the tourists security who venture to the formidable GR20, one of the most difficult hiking path in Europe. We filmed men and women in the wildlife park of Scandola in South Corsica whose passion is to protect the beaches, the Cerbicales islands ans their seabed, their fauna and flora. We will be inside the action thanks to a multicam system specific to the film-maker Nicolas Moscara
