“Jean Malaurie. Interview with Alain Morel”, collection “L’Ethnologie en héritage”, n°14, director : Gilles Le Mao ; producers : Gilles Le Mao & Stéphane Jourdain /La Huit, 2012, 180 min.

Jean Malaurie is, according to Michel Le Bris, in the Dictionnaire amoureux des explorateurs, “the last giant in the line of the Nansens and Amundsens”. He is the first man in the world to have travelled with the Eskimo Kutsikitsoq in two dog sleds on 29 May 1951 to the glacier in northern Greenland, at the North Geomagnetic Pole, in dramatic conditions. In this fascinating account, Jean Malaurie appears both through the mythical book collection “Terre Humaine” and through the State Polar Academy in St. Petersburg, of which he is president for life, as the tireless defender of all minorities, in a desire for constructive dialogue between political authorities and these young nations driven by an ecological will.
