    Andy Parkin - A life in adaptation

    David Fair (2008)

    A film about the extraordinary life of Andy Parkin, an artist and one of the world’s leading solo climbers. Andy is regarded as one of the world’s finest alpine climbers. In 1984, he suffered a near-fatal climbing accident in the Alps. This documentary captures Andy’s journey into slow rehabilitation, which involved painting and sculpting the mountains that had so very nearly claimed his life and has subsequently caused him to become known as much for his inspirational artwork, as his return to climbing. Filmed over 2 years and working very closely with Andy both in the UK and French Alps, the film is a sensitive portrayal of an extraordinary man and life in adaptation.

    Magnetic Mountains

    Steve Wakeford (2017)

    In October 2014, Steve Wakeford, a sports broadcast editor, fell 70 metres whilst climbing a mountain known as Les Petites Jorasses in the French Alps. It was a fall that required him to be airlifted out of the mountains suffering from a number of serious injuries and resulted in him being temporarily left in a wheelchair - he is lucky to be alive. At the start of a long journey of rehabilitation, he began to ask himself some serious questions - 'Regardless of injury or trauma, why are we drawn to the mountains in the first place? Is risk an essential part of what we do? Perhaps most importantly, why is it that I am planning to climb the same route from which I fell?'

    Die grossen Nordwände

    Die grossen Nordwände

    Gerald Salmina (2016)

    North faces are the epitome of extreme mountaineering. This is particularly true of the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses, Piz Badile, Großer Zinne, Petit Dru and the Drei Zinnen - in the 20th century they embodied the goals a mountaineer must have set himself in order to belong to the elite. To this day, they are playgrounds of extremes. The documentary shows the large north faces of the Alps from a surprising perspective. World-renowned top mountaineers such as Hansjörg Auer, Alexander Huber and Robert Jasper demonstrate the art of climbing at the highest level with first ascents and solo ascents.

    Werner Bertolan (2016)

    Steve House is one of the most prominent Alpinists of the last two decades.

The near-death experience was reason enough for him to redefine his way of living and climbing. This documentary takes us on a very private and personal ski tour with Steve House through the Austrian Alps. Along the way, Steve shows his new 'grown up' self and leaves the old risk taker behind.
