About this Event

Silence - 18 min

What does it take to climb the world’s hardest route? The 17-min movie documents Adam Ondra, a professional rock climber from Czechia, as he made a piece of climbing history when he climbed his project in Norway in September 2017. The route called Silence, received a new grade of 9c (5.15d). Directed by Bernardo Gimenez.

Choices - 21 min

Steph Davis chose climbing. The law student left school in her early twenties and followed her passion for the sport, earning a number of climbing achievements from Yosemite to Patagonia. For a while she called her car home before eventually settling in Moab, Utah, and discovered her second passion: BASE jumping. Although she‘s suffered many losses, including the death of her husband Mario Richards in a wingsuit accident, she‘s never regretted having chosen her unconventional way of life—a life full of extraordinary choices proving that what seems to be a wrong decision at first can be the right one. Directed by Teresa Hoerl.

Two Nineteen Forty Four - 7 min

On a cold, misty morning in late October 2017, after 11 previous attempts, climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds broke the standing speed record (formerly held by Alex Honnold and Hans Florine) on The Nose of El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, with an unbelievable new time of 2 hours, 19 minutes, and 44 seconds. Experience their record-breaking climb in this genre-bending timelapse by Tristan Greszko. Directed by Tristan Greszko.

Liv Along The Way - 22 min

Since she first summited Mont Blanc as a teen, Liv Sansoz knew she would make her life in the mountains. She was twice crowned World Champion in sport climbing, and eventually expanded her professional horizons to mixed climbing, ski mountaineering, and base jumping. In 2017, at 40 years old, Liv set out from her base in Chamonix, France to attempt to climb all 82 4000m peaks in the European Alps in a single year. As she’s learned several times throughout her life, things don’t always go as planned. Directed by Mike Douglas.

Real Rock ‘An Urban Climbing Experience’ - 11 min

In the last 100 years, humans have discovered no new mountains. But we’ve built so many new buildings. As the last remaining first ascents are claimed on the mountains of the world, there’s only one direction climbing can go: to the cities. Directed by Drew Herder.

Inwards - 12 min

Bernd Arnold is one of the exceptionally gifted climbers of the 20th century. For two decades he made up some of the worlds hardest first ascents. Names like “Riders on the Storm“ or „Royal Flush“ in Patagonia are only some of them. Most of his routes he set up in the notorious German area of sandstone towers – Saxonian Switzerland. Some of them even barefoot. In an emphatic short the 70 years old climbing pioneer bridges between success in climbing and inner experiences. From the roots of childhood to distant mountain regions and friendship he draws a line back home to present days. Directed by Ulf Wogenstein.

Notes from the Wall - 34 min

19 days on a 1200-meter-high vertical wall in Torres del Paine, Patagonia. An honest and profound story of an ascent spiced up by rough weather conditions, technical climbing and live music. directed by Siebe Vanhee, Nicolas Favresse, and Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll.
