    Dirtbag Vod

    Dirtbag

    Dave O'Leske (2017)

    Fred Beckey is the legendary American 'Dirtbag' mountaineer whose name has evoked mystery, sarcasm and adulation since the 1940s. His stubborn determination to climb one peak after another was translated into a solitary life on the road, where he left a trail of furious climbing partners and abandoned lovers. At the age of 94 he is still obsessed by the mountains and plans ambitious expeditions, but the man who once cavorted over the rock and ice now has to come to terms with everyday life. The story of this athletic rebel, who inspired generations of climbers with his monumental first ascents and impassioned books, is recounted for the first time.

    Everest unmasked

    Leo Dickinson (1978)

    Record of the first ascent of Everest made without the use of oxygen equipment, made in May 1978 by Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler. Could it be done? Would their blood vessels burst? Would they suffer brain damage leading to madness? Nobody was sure. Messner: 'I would never come here for trying Everest with oxygen. That is not a challenge for me.' A fascinating piece of history, well filmed by Leo Dickinson and Eric Jones (above the South Col Messner used a cine camera to continue the filming), featuring Messner and Habeler's thoughts. The film follows the usual sequence from Namche to Base Camp, through the Icefall, to Camps I, II and III. It also shows historical footage of the pioneering Mallory and Shipton expeditions.

    Barfuß nach innen - Die Kletterlegende Bernd Arnold

    Ulf Wogenstein (2020)

    Elbe Sandstone Mountains, between Pirna and the Czech border, is one of the most romantic landscapes in Germany. The star in these beautiful rocks is an ascetic man with glasses and a pipe: Bernd Arnold - the Saxon climbing legend from Hohnstein. Even as a child, the 'barefoot climber' stuck to the rock like a gecko. And to this day his motto is: 'Overcoming difficult things with ease'. Whoever sees it on the rock does not doubt the veracity of this leitmotif. Nobody has ever climbed these rocks before him so elegantly. But above all, this sentence proves that lightness is not a question of talent. It has to be fought over and over again with the sport. A portrait of Bernd Arnold at 73 years-old.
