    La délicatesse du poil Vod

    La délicatesse du poil

    Jean-Louis Wertz (2015)

    During one month a diverse crew went out to explore new bouldering areas in Namibia, which is still largely unexplored with regard to climbing. Despite wildlife, mines, sand dunes and other classic attractions that compose this country, it seemed to the team that there was still one very important attraction missing … sites of blocks in quantity and quality. They figured that the only thing they could do was go out there and have a look on site.

    Bavarian Direct Vod

    Bavarian Direct

    Franz Hinterbrandner (2013)

    The brothers Alex and Thomas Huber, together with the Tyrolean Mario Walder join forces in the summer of 2012 on the island of Baffin to complete the liberation of Bavarian direct (700 m of route and originally ranked as 6b/A3) in the South Tower of Mount Asgard. Its chaining, made in roped style alternating the pitches, places this route in the second step of the difficulty in Arctic rock (with a maximum degree of 8a+, very close to the 8b that the brothers Pou and Hansjörg Auer gave to their 'The door' in Perfection Valley). The Germans solved the pitch left by the Belgians and Silvia Vidal in 2009. In the film the Huber brothers meet the German team that opened the route in 1996 and the Belgian team who almost free-climbed it in 2009.

    La Cour des Grands Vod

    La Cour des Grands

    Guillaume Lion (2016)

    Stéphane, a rock-climber, wants to make a name in the world of climbing. With his girlfriend Alizée, a renowned climber, he spends the winter in Siurana, Catalonia – the perfect place for tough climbing. ‘The Big Boys’ Playground’ is about the mindset of climbers. Sometimes the hardest part is simply accepting that one is able to succeed. Performance, more than a physical achievement, seems to be a state of mind. Through the sport of climbing the film reflects on universal topics such as the pursuit of excellence, achievement of goals and life as a couple … ‘The Big Boys’ Playground’ has the ambition to reach the general public, but at the same time it takes a critical look at already well-established climbing film industry.
