How Heavy is a Cloud?

Directed by
Raymond Achilli
Produced by
Mille et une productions

Documentary, France, 2005, 52 min

Understanding the clouds, their shapes, colors, and composition, is to understand the weather. The film sheds light on the secrets of the water cycle and atmospheric phenomena: violent storms, floods, hail and snow. What we learn may even push aside generally accepted ideas... Predicting the weather is the challenge of meteorology.
