    Women with altitude

    Sarah Vaill (2010)

    On the snow-covered peaks of the Bolivian Andes seven women are undertaking an epic journey. They are the survivors and friends of survivors of domestic abuse, bound together by their experiences. Struck by rockfall, severe weather, dissension and altitude sickness, the team's climb becomes a breathtaking and triumphant visual metaphor for finding the strength to overcome life's most colossal ordeals. 'Being in the dark was hard, it reminded me of another time that was hard', Sarah says in the near complete black, only the flashlights piercing the gloom. 'After an assault by a boyfriend, I couldn't face myself, I stayed alone in the dark'. But that is why Sarah is here, to confront that shadowy memory.

    An American ascent

    George Potter (2016)

    An American Ascent documents the first African American expedition to tackle Denali, North America's highest peak and explores the complex relationship many African-Americans have with the outdoors. As the United States transitions to a 'minority majority' nation, a staggering number of people of color do not identify with America's wild places. By embarking on the grueling multi-week climb of the 20,327ft Denali, nine African-American climbers set out to bridge this 'adventure gap' - challenging outdated notions of what adventure looks like by changing the face of America's biggest and baddest mountain on the 100th anniversary of its first summit.
