    O eslabón perdido

    Pablo Ces (2014)

    Benito Santos, known as Bendecorme, is a benchmark in bouldering in Galicia. Benito lives in Corme, where the waters of the Atlantic attack the coast with force. There he spends about three hours a day underwater, dedicated to the task of collecting diver. When he's done, he spends as much time as he can on his favorite activity - boulder climbing. 'El eslabón perdido' is the name of a bouldering line that Bendecorme has been testing for years: 'the line of my life'. A block that nobody has managed to chain so far.

    Out on A Limb

    Jordan Manley (2019)

    In this film, two people and two worlds meet. Craig DeMartino, an adaptive climber from Boulder (Colorado) and Kai Lin, an industrial engineer from Brooklyn (New York), team up to design a game-changing prosthetic foot. This is easier said than done. Early prototypes don't hold up to the rigors of straight-in crack climbing, but this unlikely alliance is determined to test the power of problem-solving, so Craig and Lin keep at it. First episode of 'The problem solvers' series, by Arc'Teryx.

    The Alex Megos Formula

    Frank Kretschmann (2016)

    A film portrait about the young world-class climber Alexander Megos. The viewers go on a four-part journey in search of the secret formula as they join Alex on his travels and during his climbing projects and get to know his home and origin. The viewers try to find proof, leaning on basic concepts from physics like gravity, friction, momentum, and others, of the existence of the formula. All four episodes take a look at Alex from different vantage points and different subject areas, always connected to an analogy from physics. The search for the formula leads to the conclusion that Alex is more than the sum of his traits.
