An award winning selection of films from the New Zealand Mountain Film Festival 2019 - brought to you by the combined forces of the Vic Uni Tramping Club, Wellington Tramping and Mountaineering Club, and of course the New Zealand Mountain Film and Book Festival!
Perspectives (6 mins) Director: Scott Secco, USA.
Everyone views the world differently. The chaotic cities, the surreal mountains, the kind people; each provide a beautiful and unique experience. On a bike journey in the Himalaya, the unfamiliar environment is amplified with every pedal stroke, taking the rider further into the unknown, closer to connection, and toward the realisation that perspective is everything.
Cerro Kishtwar – An Ice Cold Story (30 min), Director: Julian Zanker, Germany, subtitles.
The ban on climbing in the Kashmir mountains was lifted, so three alpinists set off to attempt an unclimbed face. But the difficulties were greater than expected and they encountered hard technical climbing at high altitude. Let’s just say things didn’t go exactly according to plan.
Between the lines - Entre les lignes (28 mins), Directors: Pierre Cadot and Thomas Guerrin, France, subtitles.
Classic French extreme skiing in the heart of the Alps, exploring the nooks and crannies of an already well-run mountain in order to continue finding new, steep (very steep) lines in the Mont-Blanc massif.
Spectre Expedition - To the End of the Earth (49 mins), Directors: Alastair Lee & Leo Houlding, UK.
2,000 kilometres, 200kg each, 65 days, 3 mates, 1 mountain. Unsupported, using snow-kites to travel great distance, with massive loads and at speeds up to 60 kph, this is the epic tale of Wanaka local Mark Sedon, Leo Houlding (UK) and Jean Burgun's (France) daring dream to reach the summit of the most remote mountain on Earth; The Spectre, Antarctica.
Total running time 113 minutes + 10 minute intermission.
