Introduction

30mins, Director: Damiano Levati, NZ Premiere, Subtitles: Yes

A beautiful film about one man’s motivations that drive him to the mountains. Until Alex Honnold’s free solo of El Capitan, Hansjörg Auer’s free solo of The Fish Route — an 850-metre 7b+ (5.12c) in the Dolomites, Italy — was an easy contender for the boldest, most cutting free solo ever completed.
