BEST OF BANFF #2 FILMS
The first woman to climb grade E9, British climber Hazel Findlay is a connoisseur of loose rock, dodgy gear and big runouts. At just 5’2” and with a philosophy degree from the University of Bristol, she’s busting stereotypes of the UK trad climbing scene being dominated by machismo men… and heading to Morocco to tackle a 2,800ft big wall called Babel.
High above the dramatic Gorges du Verdon, a group of daredevils known as the Flying Frenchies recruit musicians and aerial dancers to perform a symphony devoted to risk. The artists are perhaps not accustomed to such hair-raising exposure, but dive into the most extreme situations that the Frenchies can dream up... and the result is a high-adrenaline treat for the senses.
ON THE TRAIL OF GENGHIS KHAN: THE LAST FRONTIER
Australian adventurer Tim Cope, his dog Tigon and a band of horses take on a 10,000km journey from Mongolia to Hungary, following in the footsteps of legendary warrior and nomad Genghis Khan. Having travelled through remote communities on the cusp of modernity yet proud of nomadic traditions, The Last Frontier captures the culmination of Tim’s stunning three-year journey: the crossing of the Carpathian Mountains.
When ordinary people share a singular passion, the extraordinary emerges. WildWater is a journey into the mind and soul of white-water river runners, and the wild places their obsession takes them, which are often places of discovery, solitude and risk. Visually stunning and an expedition into new ideas, WildWater is a classic adventure film that captures the soul of adventure sports.
Simone Moro, Denis Urubko and Cory Richards attempt to become the first people to make a winter ascent of Gasherbrum II, one of Pakistan’s 8,000m peaks. Cold is a frank and personal portrayal of the risks of high-altitude mountaineering, with chilling first-hand footage of the harrowing descent that amplifies their isolation and exposure to extreme cold… and then avalanche strikes.
