    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.

    Life in a legend's shadow

    Chris Alstrin (2015)

    Opportunities may be handed to you a little easier when you’re the son of a legend but that doesn’t guarantee success. Being dragged to Pakistan at the age of 1 for a climbing expedition only to come home with Chicken Pox and being told 'You’re never going to be as good as your father' would make any young child stay as far away from climbing as possible. Jess Roskelley the son of Legendary climber John Roskelley and the only American to receive a Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement Award for his climbing achievements thought the same way throughout his childhood until that one climb changed his entire life.

    In November 2016, Pete Whittaker became the first person to complete a free climbing roped-solo ascent to El Capitan in under 24 hours, finishing in 20 hours and 6 minutes. Rope Solo Free climbing is a sport that few people know about and even fewer people do. We hear from Pete Whittaker, from his long time climbing partner Tom Randall, and from the big wall solo climbing expert Andy Kirkpatrick as they take us through the paces of what it really means to make a rope-solo-free ascent of El Cap.

    Will Stanhope - As a guide

    Cameron Maier (2016)

    Will Stanhope, a CMGA Guide, talks us through his philosophy on life 'as a guide' and showcases some of Tasmania’s best climbing. Last winter together with Sonnie Trotter and Cameron Maier, Will ventured down under to the fabled island. As he says... really an awesome place if you ever get a chance to visit; think high mountain crags, wave blasted sea cliffs, and some of the spindliest sea stacks on planet earth. Viewers beware: along with the climbing footage, there's a fair bit of head-scratching inside jokes in this video.

    Wild Owyhee

    Dan Holz (2017)

    In the heart of the west lives a vast, untouched and priceless gem. The Owyhee, a wild place where those who visit leave with something more than they arrived with - whether a connection to a simpler time, youthful memories reignited, or a source of hope and strength. It has been here as long as time, raw and perfect, but its uncertain future now lies in our hands. A film by Dan Holz produced for Osprey.

    Un piton de plus

    Bruno Peyronnet (2018)

    Georges Livanos. Today this name evokes nothing, or so little, even in the heart of Chamonix, the Mecca of mountaineering... And yet... The man who was nicknamed 'Le Grec' in the 1950s, due to his paternal ancestry, was undoubtedly one of the most important French mountaineers of his time. Mountain guide Yann Borgnet immerses in Georges' footsteps and imagines an alpine journey, designed to visit the great routes opened by him. A dive into the heart of an immense vertical heritage, to meet a great almost forgotten figure of mountaineering and all the heritage he left.
