Touching the void

Based on Joe Simpson’s international bestseller, 'Touching the Void' documents one of the most extraordinary true stories of adventure and survival of our time. Made by Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald, the film recounts a fateful climb Joe Simpson and his mountaineering partner, Simon Yates, undertook in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. This feature documentary combines dramatic reconstruction of the climb, and interviews with the two climbers nearly killed on the 21,000-foot Siula Grande. The big success of the movie inspired the whole I Shouldn't Be Alive TV series, from the same producers.
