    Voyager

    Joe O'Connor (2017)

    This film follows Irish climber David Fitzgerald, who after taking up the sport only 5 years ago traveled to the Peak District to try the hardest bouldering problems on grit. After sending Deliverance (7B+) and The Ace (8B) David set his sights on Voyager sit start (8B+). Voyager was set by Ben Moon in 2006 and had only been climbed by two others (Niccolò Ceria and Ned Feehally) before David. It is widely regarded as the hardest route on grit. David was filmed in the Peaks and in his home city of Dublin over the course of two months in spring 2017 while working on the route and training indoors.

    Statement of Youth

    Nick Brown (2019)

    The 1980's saw climbing standards rise exponentially. At the start of the decade, 7b+ was cutting edge, but by the end of the '80s 9a was the new world standard. By the end of the decade, the sport had changed beyond recognition and a paradigm was set for future generations. A small group of climbers would do anything to climb full-time: sleeping in sheds underneath crags, shoplifting for food and clothes, and living off the dole. These climbers were living outside the rest of society and went on to become the most influential figures in the history of British climbing.

    Rotpunkt

    Chelsea Jolly (2019)

    Through failure and success, Alex Megos strives to be the best climber in the world. The movie is a portrait of the German climber and a look into the history of free climbing including the likes of Kurt Albert and Wolfgang Güllich. The film analyses Megos through his strengths and weaknesses and delves into his origins, namely the start of the Rotpunkt movement, that revolutionary red dot invented in 1975 in Germany's Frankenjura by Kurt Albert which indicates that a route has been climbed free, without the use of aid for progression.
