    Speak to me softly

    Henna Taylor (2018)

    Climbers love to talk about exposure, about vertical rock faces and sheer ridgelines, and the experience of hundreds of feet of air underfoot. But what of the exposure that happens within? The inner dialogue and the battle with fear, expectations, and self? 'Speak To Me Softly' is a short film and case study into the emotional and mental side of climbing. Akin to reading someone else’s journal or sneakily looking over their shoulder, the film invites you to take an honest and intimate peek into the headspace of climber having a not-so-sendy day.
