    Bavarian Direct Vod

    Bavarian Direct

    Franz Hinterbrandner (2013)

    The brothers Alex and Thomas Huber, together with the Tyrolean Mario Walder join forces in the summer of 2012 on the island of Baffin to complete the liberation of Bavarian direct (700 m of route and originally ranked as 6b/A3) in the South Tower of Mount Asgard. Its chaining, made in roped style alternating the pitches, places this route in the second step of the difficulty in Arctic rock (with a maximum degree of 8a+, very close to the 8b that the brothers Pou and Hansjörg Auer gave to their 'The door' in Perfection Valley). The Germans solved the pitch left by the Belgians and Silvia Vidal in 2009. In the film the Huber brothers meet the German team that opened the route in 1996 and the Belgian team who almost free-climbed it in 2009.

    Au-delà des cimes Vod

    Au-delà des cimes

    Rémy Tezier (2009)

    Catherine Destivelle will make three spectacular climbs in the Alps accompanied by three different climbing partners. Each partner chosen because they had a profound impact on her life. During the ascents, she will share with us the sense of freedom and passion that the mountains inspire and the pleasure of reaching the summits. More than an intimate portrait of Catherine, the film sheds light on the close relationships that develop between climbers and the special connections made in mountaineering. Breathtaking and beautifully shot, the film unveils the magnificent Alpine environment and the immensity of the soaring rock faces.

    Adventures on the roof of the world

    Adventures on the roof of the world

    Frederick Burlingham (1914)

    The film collects material from different mountain adventures in the Alps filmed by Frederick Burlingham. From alpine climbing on the slopes of the Jungfrau to mountaineering and rock climbing in the glaciers and rock pinnacles of the Mont Blanc Massif. Frederick Burlingham, known at the time as 'The man who kinomatographed the Matterhorn', was a traveller cinematographer and one of the mountain film pioneers. Continuing the mountain film tradition established by Ormiston-Smith, Burlingham filmed several mountaineering films largely in Switzerland, taking mountain film in a new direction of immediacy and perceived peril.

    Agur Everest

    Agur Everest

    Juan Ignacio Lorente (1981)

    In 1974 the first Basque Everest expedition had to retire 300 meters below the summit because of the monsoon. That first Basque attempt to climb Everest in 1974 left a feeling of frustration to Basque mountaineering. Six years later, in 1980, Martín Zabaleta, together with Sherpa Pasang Temba, members of the second Basque Everest expedition, reach the roof of the world. The film shows images from both expeditions. The first expedition was filmed in 35mm by Fernando Larruquert and Angel Lerma; the second was filmed in Super 16mm by Juan Ignacio Lorente, Martín Zabaleta and other members of the expedition.

    Afghanen an die Spitze

    Afghanen an die Spitze

    Louis Meunier (2011)

    Short version of the film '7000 mètres au dessus de la guerre': Afghanistan is today synonymous with conflict, terrorism and danger. Yet, before the war started, this country of Central Asia was famous for the beauty of its nature. As startling as it is, Mount Noshaq, the highest peak in Afghanistan rising at 7492 meters, has never been climbed by an Afghan citizen. In this documentary, four Afghan mountaineers attempt to do what none of their countrymen dreamt possible: to be the first Afghans to set foot on the top of Mount Noshaq. Their goal: to send a message of hope and peace to their war-torn country. This short version omits the first part of the original film, in which the team is trained in the Mont Blanc Massif.

    50 anni dopo

    Fulvio Mariani (1997)

    In 1937, together with his close friend and climbing partner Vitorio Ratti, Riccardo Cassin climbed the beautiful and enticing northeast face of the Piz Badile, an extraordinarily elegant line, crossing a massive 500-metre rock amphitheatre.
