Mountains on Stage Summer Edition 2018 film tour dates announced

Trek and Mountain is proud to be a sponsor of the 2018 Summer Edition of the Mountains on Stage film tour as it travels across 40 cities in Europe, showing films from around the world which feature a selection of compelling and inspiring stories.

The opening show will take place in Paris on March 26th, and will then tour across Europe with 20 cities in France, nine in the UK, four in Switzerland, eight in Belgium, and one in Luxembourg! This year’s film selection includes:

Lunag Ri

This gripping film documents the second attempt of two mountaineers, David Lama and Conrad Anker, to climb Lunag Ri, a virgin summit (6907m) located on the border between Tibet and Nepal. This new documentary, which will have its premiere at Mountains on Stage, is packed with stunning alpine climbing, but it also shows how even the best mountaineers can be fragile in the mountains…

Length: 35 minutes
Director: Florian Kingler

Notes from the Wall

The Belgians are back to Mountains On Stage ! In this documentary, the mythical team composed of Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Nicolas Favresse and Siebe Vanhee are involved in a new adventure in Chilean Patagonia (Torres del Paine), the land of “big walls”. A mix of hard climbing, spectacular exploration, music and humor!

Length: 35 minutes
Director: Guillaume Lion

The Mountain Of The Crystal Diggers

The new gold diggers: it’s the story of a passion shared by four friends who gather each year in the mountains to look for crystals. Global warming and retreating glaciers make the modern era a golden age for this practice. In 2015, the discovery of an exceptional “oven” changed their lives. This documentary takes another look at the mountains, far from performance, it becomes a place for sharing and exploration.

Length: 26 minutes
Director: Pierre Cadot

Surf the Line

In 2015, Anicet Léone and Tancrède Melet had a bright idea: surf in the air. After the death of Tancrède, the continuation of this project became very important for the Flying Frenchies. If adrenaline is guaranteed, the beauty of the film comes mainly from the sincere confessions of the protagonists regarding the absence of their friend, and their approach to risk-taking moving forward. A film that is both intimate and full of life!

Length: 26 minutes
Director: Jeremy Frey

Break on Through

Girl power! The level of difficulty in modern climbing is steadily increasing to reach 9c today, but the gap between men and women is getting ever smaller. Margo Hayes proved it by achieving an historical performance: to become the first woman to climb a 9a+. Her projects are two legendary routes, “La Rambla” (Spain) and “Biographie” (France) which will require an absolute commitment. A must-see film about an exceptional woman!

Lenght : 26 minutes
Director: Sender Films / Big Up Productions
