    Filming the impossible

    Filming the impossible

    Leo Dickinson (1981)

    The risky expeditions and events filmed by Leo Dickinson are challenging and death defying in themselves, but filming these events can prove to be just as challenging and dangerous.

Among others, the film features Eric Jones' solo ascent to the Eiger, the ascent of the Matterhorn north face in winter by Eric Jones, Brian Molyneux and Eddie Birch, and the first ascent of Everest without supplemental oxygen, by Reinhold Messner and Peter Habeler in 1978.
