    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?'

    The longest expedition

    Trudy McRobert (2016)

    Renowned climber Paul Pritchard returns to Tasmania's notorious Totem Pole to tackle the climb that nearly killed him eighteen years earlier and left him partially paralysed with a massive head injury. When Paul Pritchard returned to Tasmania's majestic Totem Pole rock pillar three months ago it was the culmination of an 18-year journey. The former professional climber and writer suffered a massive injury in 1998 when his rope dislodged a large rock, which fell on his head. He was saved by the actions of his former girlfriend who hauled him 30 metres up to a ledge before running for help. In a second stroke of luck, the paramedic on duty that day was also a climber. Neale Smith's decision to short-circuit a cliff rescue and abseil with Paul down to a waiting boat almost certainly saved his life.

    Doing it scared

    Matthew Newton (2016)

    A short film about rock-climbing legend Paul Pritchard, and his attempt to finally conquer the Totem Pole, a 'fearsome sea-stack' which 18 years ago almost cost Paul his life. Paul was one of the leading climbers and mountaineers of the 1980s and 1990s, renowned for his hard and extremely bold first ascents. In 1998 Paul was abseiling in to climb the Totem Pole in southeast Tasmania, when he dislodged a rock with his rope which hit him on the head, leaving him with a severe head injury that he was lucky to survive. This is a moving film about an extraordinary man on an inspiring life journey, his continuing recovery from a crushing injury and the never waning desire for adventure.
