    Střípky ze života horolezce

    Libor Dušek (2018)

    A tribute to Miroslav Šmíd, a Czech rock climber, solo climber, mountaineer, mountain cinematographer and photographer. Mira, as he was known, was also an active organizer of climbing and cultural events. In 1981 he founded The International Festival of Mountaineering Films (Czech: Mezinárodní horolezecký filmový festival) in Teplice nad Metují. He also wrote several books. Šmíd died tragically in 1993 during a solo ascent at Lost Arrow Spire in Yosemite. Apparently he fell just below the top while he was climbing unroped. All his equipment was found on the last ledge below the top.

    Od palice k vrtu

    Jan Šimánek (2018)

    Petr 'Spek' Slanina is a legend: he started climbing in the Czech sandstone when he was eight years old. By now, he has opened more than 1,470 classic routes and is thus inextricably linked to the climbing history of this region. The film is a direct lesson from professor Spek about the development of the method of making first-time ascent and equipment of a climbing route. A brief history of the sandstone 'circle-logy' from the most prominent researcher, directly from the development center in Klokočí. A film by Jan Simanek produced for Direct Alpine.
