    Blood Moon - Brit Rock

    Alastair Lee (2018)

    Robbie Phillips, Calum Cunningham and Alan Carne attempt to open a new climb, ground up, on a 700m Big Wall called Tsaranoro Atsimo in Madagascar.

Once the free climbing begins disaster strikes, Alan takes a bad fall shattering his lower right leg, an epic ordeal unfolds to get Alan from the remote big wall to safety. Then, Robbie and Calum must decide whether to continue with their push or give in to their emotions. This version of the film, 10 minutes shorter, was part of the 2018 Brit Rock Film Tour.

    Journey for three

    Michael Forlong (1950)

    The adventures of three British immigrants -two girls and a man- to New Zealand. The girls settle down quite soon, one as a nurse, the other as a factory worker; the man, an engineer, finds himself out of his element, ill at ease, disliking his companions, and has almost determined to leave when he goes out on a relief party up the mountains to rescue a climber who has broken his leg at the head of a glacier. The rigors of the climb solve his personal problems: he decides he likes New Zealanders after all, in spite of their differences to Britons... A film promoted by the Immigration Department of New Zealand to attract immigrants.
