About this Event

A Winter Affair East West - UK Premiere: New Zealand’s Janina Kuzma, Anna Smoothy and Japans Ayako Kuroda, cross New Zealand’s Southern Alps over the Main Divide from East to West starting at the Liebigs. The ladies are confronted with challenging terrain and weather conditions and a last minute change to their plans prepares the team to exit out on a different route. Disaster strikes when a member of the team falls ill and is airlifted out, leaving the teams remaining two girls to complete the expedition. What is concerning to the ladies is the visible disappearance of snow and ice on the glaciers they cross. The team reflect on the decline of the glaciers in the region as the ice is changing dramatically from year to year.

Adaptive - UK Premiere: Jim Ewing is a veteran rock climber and senior rope engineer at Sterling Rope, a prominent rock climbing rope company. On Christmas Day in 2014, Jim fell over 50 feet to the ground in a climbing accident, a near-death experience that led to the subsequent below-the-knee amputation of his left leg. Before walking on a prosthetic, Jim was already climbing again, and before long, he began dreaming about his bucket list...

In 2018, Jim invited a climber missing her left hand, Maureen Beck, to accompany him in attempting the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada's Cirque of the Unclimbables. The route is on the list of North America's 50 classic climbs and the 2,000 foot granite face is coveted by climbers everywhere. In "Adaptive", Jim and Maureen hope to demonstrate that "disabled" climbers are just differently––and equally––abled.

On The Verge - UK Premiere: In the mountains behind the sleepy coastal town of Powell River, BC, a small group of rock climbers has spent decades quietly pioneering routes on some of the largest granite walls in Canada. As the last stands of old-growth trees harboured in these valleys come under threat of logging, the climbing community faces the uncertain future of a place that has come to define their lives and legacies.

Confronted with the decision to fight for these last ancient trees and potentially lose access or look away as the valley is stripped for timber, On The Verge is a snapshot of outdoors culture in British Columbia. The way we reconcile industries that give us access to the wilderness with the destruction they cause. The desire to protect our backyard but keep it for ourselves at the same time. The importance of these places to the people who have shaped them and been shaped by them in return.
