    John Gill across time

    Pat Ament (2012)

    This is a gorgeous ode about rock climbing and time passing, with John Gill, the spiritual genius, at its center. Remarkable voices emerge to paint the picture of the great master boulderer, John Gill. Individuals who have been part of it all, such as Ron Kauk, Rich Goldstone, Tom Higgins, Royal Robbins, John Sherman, and filmmaker Pat Ament himself. New footage uncovered of Gill enriches these images, and his voice too comes alive with detailed analysis of some of his iconic climbs. As deep and touching as the first film, 'The disciples of Gill', this second incarnation continues but stands alone as well, as a work of art itself.
