The Alpinist 12A

Fri 8 – Thu 14 Oct

"★★★★ – An exultant, heart-in-mouth odyssey to the roof of the world" – Time Out

"Everything a climbing film should be" – Gripped

"The most compelling climbing film since Free Solo" – Outside

Canadian Marc-André Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23-year-old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history.

An elusive subject, Marc-André is nomadic and publicity shy; he doesn’t own a phone or car, and is reluctant to let a film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. As veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall)  struggles to keep up, Marc-André's climbs grow bigger and more daring, leading to an ascent in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing.

Fans of Free Solo will rejoice at this intimate and heart-pounding documentary about the visionary young climber.
