    Stone Locals

    Cheyne Lempe (2020)

This film tells the stories of five of these anchors, the Stone Locals who keep the soul of climbing and nurture it as the sport evolves, and does it by following climbers from 5 different communities: Kathy Karlo, Daniel Pohl, Dario Ventura, The Keithley family, and Katsutaka “Jumbo” Yokoyama.

    Three friends venture into wild Siberia to climb in a unique arena of granite towers and walls jutting out of the stark tundra. The climbers are in heaven with the abundance of unclimbed rock.

    Shared Vision – A Journey Beyond Sight

    Shared Vision – A Journey Beyond Sight

    Keith Partridge (2019)

    Red Szell suffers from the degenerative eye condition retinitis pigmentosa and is now blind. But he’s always had an adventurous streak and in this inspirational journey, we see Red travel to the very NW corner of Scotland. As the first blind climber to reach the top of the iconic sea stacks of the Old Man Of Hoy and Old Man Of Stoer only Am Buachaille remains in the trilogy of these blades of rock that jut from the crashing Atlantic. Just reaching the base will involve a triathlon of sorts, with a mountain bike ride, a steep scramble down the mainland cliff before a swim across the tidal flow to reach the start of the climb. He then has four hours to get up and get off before the tide races in. Red’s story is a journey beyond sight.

    Pyrénéisme d'hier et d'aujourd'hui

    Pyrénéisme d'hier et d'aujourd'hui

    Laurence Fleury (2019)

    The word Pyrénéisme was invented by Henri Beraldi at the end of the 19th century. Its definition is not summarized as the practice of mountaineering in the Pyrenees. It is a sporting approach to the mountain accompanied by artistic or intellectual activity. In addition to questioning current mountaineers about whether they consider themselves pyrénéistes or not, the film is also a great tribute to the Pyrenees.
