Cold Ground stars Gala Besson (Les garçons et Guillaume à table!, Horsehead, Little Gay Boy), Doug Rand (The Transporter, Arthur and the invisibles, Albert est méchant), Phillip Schurer (Black Venus, Ma Femme est une actrice), Geoffrey Blandin (Dead Crossroads, The Wild Diaries), introducing Maura Tillay and Fabrice Pierre.

Director Fabien Delage says "It's been a tough January for the team. We spent most of the month shooting in the snow, in extreme conditions, sometimes in dangerous places. Shooting in the cold night and day isn't easy and I'd like to thank the cast and crew for their efforts and involvement. This adventure could not have been possible without them and the result will live up to all our expectations."

1976: Melissa and David, two young journalists freshly out of college, leave for the French-Swiss border to investigate a strange case of cattle mutilations and record testimonies and information about the story for a TV channel.

Escorted by a first aider, a British biologist and an American forensic investigator, Melissa and David will go looking for the missing team deep into the mountains. Yet their rescue mission soon turns into a fight for survival as they get caught into an avalanche.

Having committed the irreparable, a young woman runs away through the wild and desert American West in search of a hideout. She is going to try to get herself back together by beginning a life of wandering, without limit nor stability. Solitary, dissatisfied and tormented, to find herself she is going to multiply the more and more extreme experiences.


Halfway between the road movie, the art-house film and the Genre movie, The Wild Diaries is a poetic and aesthetic short movie. Resolutely dramatic in its story, the direction will borrow the aesthetic codes of sixties to deliver us the introspective and graphic monologue of a free female character which tries constantly to surpass herself to fill the space of her chaotic existence.


Filmed with a Super 8 (close to the 4/3 classic format) and an Iphone through California, Arizona, Uta and Nevada, in the heart of a wild and hostile nature, The Wild Diaries depicts a timeless, magnificent, wild and merciless America, an infinite territory where the only rules to be respected are the ones that we stand out.

The heroin is going to free herself from agreements and laws to live her own life, overtaking her physical and psychological limits, giving way to the excesses of her spirit, without compromise, without fear, without regret. A one-way journey towards the prohibition in sublimated America.


Having written and co-directed diverse short films such as " Under The Nature " and " Blow Of Madness " which were awarded in French festivals, 5 years after his last short " The End Of The Small Worlds", director Fabien Delage ("Dead Crossroads" - 2012 and " Fury Of the Demon" - 2013) returns on a short format with a work more than ever aesthetic and personal.


Armed with a Super 8 camera, storyboards and his technical cutting, he leaves by chance in the American West with actress Eva Chow to direct an atypical movie which is similar in its visual treatment to an exploitation movie of the 60's but with a very different sub-text, direction and message.


Starring Eva Chow, Sophia Sega, Fanfan, Geoffrey Blandin.


And if it is question of sexual freedom in THE WILD DIARIES, it is also question of violence and thus special effects. For the SFX and props, Fabien Delage appeals to BJ Winslow and his wife Eileen, founders of the famous Californian studio Dapper Cadaver located to Sun Valley! We owe to this studio the bloody props of TV series such as Supernatural, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, Vampire Diaries, CSI: NY, Law and Order, Cold Case, NCIS, Nip / Tuck, Dexter, Bones and Entourage.


It does not ring any bell to you? Dapper Cadaver worked on features and blockbusters as Pirates of the Caribbean 2 - 4, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Cowboys and Aliens, Final Destination 5, Water for Elephants, No. Country music for Old Men, Twilight, Wizard of Gore, Nightmare one Elm Street, Night of the living room Dead 3D, 300, Silent Hill and many others.but also to the brilliant Anthony Rattin (Illinois) for the design of some gory elements, including the skined face of a man cut with cutter, terrifying of realism.

If the casting consists of little known comedians, there is however a star whom everybody knows in the movie … Nature. The Wild Diaries makes you travel in the heart of canyons, forest and mountains, through the most magnificent landscapes of United States.
