Bonington: Mountaineer

Bonington: Mountaineer

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 19th Apr 2018

In Bonington: Mountaineer Keith Partridge and Brian Hall have created a moving visual memoir on one of the world's most celebrated mountaineers and adventurers, Sir Chris Bonington.

With a discerning eye that can only come from filmmakers with a lifetime of experience in the mountain film industry, this feature length documentary expertly tackles the sensitive subjects of loss, love and legacy climbing the world's most challenging peaks - The Eiger North Face - Annapurna - Everest - K2 - Central Tower of Paine - Ogre - Freney Pillar, Mont Blanc - Kongur - Nuptse.

'Bonington Mountaineer is a deep, personal and emotional reflection on a lifetime spent pursuing one's own ambitions on the hardest and highest mountains. To summarise Chris's prolific climbing career in a single film is no mean feat. Add to the mix the rich ensemble of colourful characters with whom he partnered on his dozens of expeditions alongside a complex family story and this film could easily have been a series. In 80 captivating minutes we are taken on an eighty year journey through many triumphs and more than one's fair share of tragedy. The film instils an incredibly positive outlook, reflecting Chris's own, and inspires one to get out in the hills and chase our own adventures. It made me laugh and made me cry' Leo Houlding, Climber and Adventurer

Cost: £22.15
