20 mins, Director Alex Eggermont, Belgium, NZ Premiere, Some Subtitles.

Peek into the world of Belgian climber Siebe Vanhee and the authentic, raw process of his first season climbing on Yosemite’s hardest big wall. The infamous Dawn Wall proves to be a challenge in more ways than one.

Darkest before Dawn combines genuine storytelling with a cinematic approach bringing together a story beyond just the climbing. The film encapsulates the beauty of body language when hanging from its fingertips thousands of feet off the ground.
