KINOFEST – Roraima – Climbers of the Lost World
$12 General Admission
The stars of this Austrian documentary feature have been legends long before this trip: Stefan Glowacz, competitive climbing’s first superstar, Holger Heuber, and the founder of the Red Point Climbing Movement Kurt Albert. Their current mission takes them to the most challenging and dangerous climb of their lives. Refusing any technical or motorized help along the way, the three friends set out to conquer the spectacular and daunting Mt. Roraima. But before they can even attempt to tame this South American monster, they first must fight their way through the mythic “Lost World” jungle, all the while enduring punishing conditions of 104ºF heat and torrential rain. Climbing Film Productions applies new technological standards to the 500-meter pendent wall at “the end of the world,” and never-before-seen images take us to unimaginable places never touched by man and inside the head of these fear-defying explorers, letting us experience not only breathtaking moments of natural beauty, but also loss, humanity, and friendship.
