The Film Lineup

Burning the Flame

(50 min)

Featuring: Barbara Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher

Location: Nameless Tower, Pakistan

Big wall free climbing masters Babsi and Jacopo seek their greatest challenge yet: a free ascent of Eternal Flame, an elusive 3,000-ft. route up the legendary Nameless Tower in Pakistan’s Karakoram range. Facing extreme conditions and 5.13 trad climbing at high altitude, a two-year quest comes down to one short weather window. Captured with drones and on-mountain cameras in one of the most stunning places on earth, Burning the Flame  transports viewers to a place normally off-limits to all but the world’s best climbers.


(30 min)

Featuring: Seb Bouin

Location: Verdon Gorge, France

29-year-old French sport climber Seb Bouin has been quietly working his way through the elite grades, culminating in his attempt to establish a long pitch out an overhanging cave in the Verdon Gorge of France. His proposed line is so futuristic, the moves so improbable, that if Seb can put it all together it may be the most difficult route ever climbed.
