23 Feb 2024 at 20.00 documentary Silent Power, 19 min
The film is the story of Nika and Andreja, who cycle to Kilimanjaro. They find organisational support from Ekeney, the head of a local trekking agency that primarily employs women, which gives the venture a socially critical edge. It is everyone’s wish to awaken the courage and will in women to dare to live their dreams and look beyond mediocrity. After the film, there will be a discussion with Nika Radjenovič and Andreja Jagodic.
On 24 February 2024 and 25 February 2024 at 20.00, in cooperation with the Bovec Outdoor Film Festival, we will screen 6 documentaries from the world of mountaineering and climbing, showing the greatest adventures and achievements of these two sports.
1. Don’t Imprison the Wind
Exploring the importance of wilderness, play and our relationship with nature.
2. Reel Rock: Burning the Flame
Austrian climbers Babsi Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher try to realise their burning desire to free climb the Nameless Tower in Pakistan.
3. Resistance Climbing
In conflict-torn Palestine, a diverse group of climbers create their own community, find solace and redemption.
1. Eternal Flemme
To jump from the summit of the Nameless Tower in Pakistan (6200 m) on the Eternal Flemme route is to combine a climb on one of the most beautiful climbing routes in the world with one of the most beautiful BASE jumps possible. Éric Jamet and Antoine Pecher, following in the footsteps of the pioneers of 1990, have achieved this feat. An adventure between two friends, beautiful, powerful and breathtaking!
2. Deepfreeze diretissime Walker
In June 1986, Patrick Gabarrou and Hervé Bouvard climbed Diretissimo on the Walker Column of the north face of the Grandes Jorasses. This was a masterpiece of difficulty on a 1200 m high wall that no one had attempted to repeat for 37 years. In February 2023, three French climbers, C. Dubouloz, S. Welfringer and C. Paulin, free climbed the face and made the first winter ascent of the route. They spent five days freezing on the wall and four bivouacs.
3. Jadis – Looking Backward
In 1787, an unknown shepherd climbed the highest mountain in the Pyrenees. Two centuries later, a skier embarks on an adventure during which he delves into the history of skiing and mountaineering in the Pyrenees. Passionate freerider Seb Jam has chosen the Spanish Pyrenees as a place to live and find fulfilment. In search of a simpler life, he balances his passion for mountains and video. As a professional cameraman and drone user, he has directed numerous films with the mountains as his main source of expression.
