CROMWELL PROGRAMME: Best of the Fest

Spellbound (5 mins) Director Richard Sidey, NZ. Wingsuit BASE jumping is often presented as a thrill-seeking adrenaline rush. Spellbound takes us deeper into the more contemplative aspects of jumping.

Mount Logan (14 minutes) Director Alex Marchesseau, France, subtitles. A journey to climb Mount Logan 5959m in Canada, then ski, snowboard and monoski down the 3,800 metre ridge over 48 days and 700km.

Katherine’s Marathon (26 mins) Director Nicolas Falquet, France, subtitles. Katherine was the first Swiss climber to complete a 9A route (NZ grade 35) and she decided to repeat this performance in the Bernese Alps, with Jungfrau Marathon, a route with a radically different style.

In the Theatre of the Gogs (19 mins) Director Richard Sidey, NZ. A contemplation of art and adventure in the southern wilds of New Zealand by two Wanaka locals: landscape photographer Christopher David Thompson and adventure filmmaker Richard Sidey. This film is the unexpected result of their two unique perspectives. Winner of Best NZ made film!

BREAK

K2: Impossible Descent – FULL MOVIE (66 mins) Director Steve Robillard, Austria, some subtitles. In 2018 a Polish ski mountaineer clicked into his bindings at an altitude of 8,611m to make history. Follow Andrzej Bargiel’s expedition as he attempts to ski the most dangerous mountain on earth; K2.
