    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.

    Boys 1970

    Boys 1970

    Redek Groh (2020)

    In 1970 a Czechoslovak expedition went to Peru to attempt a first ascent on the highest mountain in the area, Huascarán. It was night, the last day of May in 1970 when a strong earthquake hit the region. A devastating mass of ice and rocks fell from the mountain, killing 14 members of the expedition and 70,000 local people from the villages below. Fifty years later Marek Holeček and Radoslav Groh are returning to the place of tragedy to continue the work that their predecessors began in 1970. Their choice is the eastern wall of six thousand high Huandoy North. The endless barrier of ice and rocks is a huge climbing challenge. They will name the route 'Boys 1970', in honor to the members of the 1970 expedition.

    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.
