Visning 2


USA, 2007, 27 minutes

Directed by Brad Lynch, Jim Hurst

Produced by Brad Lynch


Focus: Climbing, BASE jumping

Dean Potter is obsessed with being attached to the world by as little as possible. He began his journey as a free-soloist on rock, but his refusal to be confined has pushed him to the outer edge of the climbing world and into the realms of high-lining, BASE jumping, and "bird-manning". Possessed by the idea that anything is possible, Dean maniacally pursues the most natural yet bizarre dream of man: to fly.

Higher Ground: Mountain Photographer

USA, 2007, 8 minutes

Directed by Chris Alstrin and Alexander Lavigne Produced by Chris Alstrin


Focus: Climbing, Human Interest

Andrew Querner, a professional photographer from Canmore, Alberta, explains what drives his quest for the perfect climbing photograph. Difficulty and challenge are climbing's chief attractions, but the objective hazards climbing presents tap deep sources of fear as well. Andrew Querner's photography feeds on that, and explores the relationship between climbers and the mountain environment.


Canada, 2006, 11 minutes

Directed and produced by Paul Cotton


Focus: Skiing

Balance profiles the rapidly growing world of new-school skiing, looking at all aspects of the sport: big mountain lines, terrain parks and half-pipes, and jibbing. This film captures the athletes' desires to push the edge of their abilities while facing the obvious safety risks associated with high calibre skiing. With high-energy footage cut to an upbeat soundtrack, the audience is challenged to judge whether these athletes are crazy or just extremely talented, or maybe both.
