    The ascent of Rakaposhi

    The ascent of Rakaposhi

    Jimmy Mills (1958)

    Rakaposhi is one of the most famous mountains of the Karakoram range of Pakistan and is part of the Himalayas. The 25,550 feet mountain had resisted the attempts of six previous expeditions, starting with Lord Conway in 1892. This is the story of the British-Pakistani Forces expedition which conquered Rakaposhi in June, 1958. It was photographed by two of the expedition members. One of them, Captain Banks of the Royal Marines, finally reached the summit, together with Surgeon-Lieutenant Patey of the Royal Navy.

    Makalu

    Makalu

    Carlo Alessandro Rossi (2001)

    The ascent of Makalu (8.463 m) in Nepal, in the heart of the Himalayas, is among the most coveted for alpinists, not only for the long approach march to the foot of the mountain, but also for the great technical effort required to climb it. Abele Blanc, an Alpine guide of Aymavilles in Aosta Valley, made the climb with two South Tyrolean alpinists from Prato Stelvio (Bolzano), Paul Stephan Andres and Christian Kuntner. The whole of the expedition was filmed by Kuntner and Blanc with their digital camcorders.

    The secret Kirghizistan

    The secret Kirghizistan

    Filippo Salvioni (2015)

    The film takes us, together with Luca Schiera and Matteo De Zaiacomo, to a remote and little-known country. 'But there are only two of you'? This is the question that a Russian expedition made welcoming the two youngsters in the valley of the Big Wall. With the satellite that they only took at the top of the walls, and therefore practically useless, Luca and Matteo lived a real adventure, of great alpine value (the 'usual' alpine style in free and visible climbing on the Big Wall that Luca also searched for and found in Oman, Patagonia and of course at Uli Biaho with Matteo Della Bordella and SIlvan Schupbach) and at the same time of great human depth for contact with the locals.

    The great crossing

    Stefan Fritsche (2014)

    The quartet with Tamara and Hansjörg Lunger and the two Austrian camermen Matthias Aberer and Stefan Fritsche will be crossing the Braldu glacier in Pakistan with pulke sleds from 31 March 2013. At the beginning the feat seemed to be completely unsuccessful, as large crevasses and huge seracs set them on the way making even just approaching the mountains almost impossible. Nevertheless, on April 10, the group managed to acclimatize by climbing a mountain (5619m) in the Braldu area.

    Soccorso a quota 8000

    Soccorso a quota 8000

    Alessandro Filippini (2015)

    A touching documentary that tells how in 2001 Simone Moro abandoned his climbing project to go and rescue an Englishman who was been injured after suffering a fall in the Lhotse wall. Moro was trying with Denis Urubko the chaining of Lhotse and Everest. The night before going on the summit of Lhotse, while he is in a tent at 8000 meters with Urubko, he receives a request for help for Tom Moores, a young English climber who fell from the wall. Not recommended in the enterprise by the various mountaineers present, Moro decides to leave, alone and at night, in search of the mountaineer. He finds him wounded, without gloves and crampons. He ties him and pulls him up for 200 meters in altitude to avoid being exposed to avalanches, then transports him to the tents.

    Michele Caminati (2015)

    A highly anticipated short film that Michele Caminati is making with Simone Pedeferri, set in Val Masino and Val di Mello, between the extreme lines of granite climbing and the drawings of Simone. Simone had already 'undermined' his talent as a painter with his climbing, when in 2005 he composed paintings and drawings for the texts of Fabio Palma, which were included in the book Letters of Sosta. Now this trailer tells us that the signs he wanted to put on a sheet of paper are linked precisely to its extreme lines, those numerous 8c and 8c+ that never repeats anyone or almost anyone, and that they follow incredible aesthetic lines dictated by the granite of the valley.

    Un giorno lungo 50 anni

    Alberto Sciamplicotti (2013)

    The film tells of two people who have taken two different paths to achieve a similar result, says Sciamplicotti, 'that is, to express a way of going to the mountains that corresponds to their being. Ski instructor, mountain guide and guide instructor, Gigi Mario pushed for skiing to become part of their wealth of skills. He managed the Franchetti refuge at Gran Sasso for a couple of years and then left for the Orient, from which he returned in 1973 with a new name, Engaku Taino, to open the farmhouse-monastery where he still lives, between climbing and Thai-Chi, on the hills of Orvieto.
