An 80 minute feature length documentary film by Brian Hall and Keith Partridge
Out now on DVD and download.
Stories of friendship, love, risk and devastating loss run deep through this intimate journey of one man’s dream. The drive for exploration is echoed in the first British ascent of the north wall of the Eiger, new routes on Mont Blanc, the ascent of ‘The Old Man of Hoy’ and then to the greater ranges where he is the first to stand on the virgin summits of Annapurna 2, Nuptse and the Central Tower of Paine, followed by landmark expedition success on the S. Face of Annapurna, Everest South West Face and the Ogre.
The film looks retrospectively, from his rock climbing days in the UK through to visionary ascents on the high peaks of the Himalaya and shares the remarkable and poignant life of one of the world’s best-known mountaineers – Sir Chris Bonington.
Also available on DVD with 20 minutes of added extras (The Eiger Direct story, John Porter interview, six shorts ‘In conversation with Chris’ plus the music sound track.
