MORE ON THE FILMS…

The Big Deal

An action-packed profile of one of the UK’s strongest female boulderers on rock; Frances Bensley. As a relative newcomer to rock we charter Frances’ 12-month journey on some stunning and increasingly hard problems throughout the UK as she makes an extraordinary rise to a world-class level. Beautifully filmed, this featurette revels in Frances’ refreshing approach to bouldering all accompanied by her every enthusiastic and entertaining sister Alice.

Dream of White Horses

A celebration of one of the UK’s most impactful climbers: Edwin Drummond. We pay tribute to his life with a look at the historic first ascent of what’s now considered to be one of the world’s greatest trad multi-pitches ‘A Dream Of White Horses’. Located on the spectacular cliffs of Gogarth this ascent was made by Ed Drummond and Dave Pearce in 1968. We bring the ascent to life through reenactment with James Mchaffie and Lex Pearce(Dave’s son) accompanied by Ed’s poetry which was as big a part of Ed’s life as climbing. The two blend together beautifully in this atmospheric tribute to a man who changed the climbing scene forever.

Little Flame

Paige Henry is a young woman suffering from PTSD and depression. She finds relief through spending time outdoors; rock climbing, wild swimming and tree climbing. Paige sets her sights on climbing her hardest route to date at Pen Trwyn on the North Wales coast. This film will remind everyone of the joy to be had in the outdoors.

Climbing Blind

The incredible, and award winning, story of the first blind lead of the Old Man of Hoy. Jesse Dufton was born with 20% central vision. At four years of age Jesse was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa: a rare genetic disease that breaks down the retinas’ cells. At aged 20 Jesse could no longer read, by the time he was 30 his vision was reduced to just light perception with around 1 or 2 % field of view. As a life long climber, Jesse flies in the face of adversity training for world cup events and leading traditional rock climbs with his sight guide and fiancee Molly. As his sight degenerates his climbing continues to make remarkable progress. Despite his devastating condition Jesse only takes on bigger challenges by attempting to be the first blind person to make a ‘non-sight’ lead of the iconic Old Man of Hoy sea stack in Scotland.
