Heroes of Nyon at Visions du Réel

Hero of Nyon | Solar Impulse: André Borschberg

Some adventures seem to have been invented so that they can be brought to the screen. The crazy bet of flying around the world on board a plane powered only by solar energy is one of them. André Borschberg will be present at Visions du Réel to tell this incredible story with the special screening of Solar Impulse, the Impossible Round the World Mission.
