Climbing Film Documentary
« on: June 17, 2014, 08:04:46 AM »
For anyone who might be in the Cape Cod area over July 26 weekend, there will be the debut of a feature film on the history of American rock climbing. The film will debut opening night at the Woods Hole Film Festival, on July 26.

John,

I'm not really sure, as the producer decided to make 2 films. This film focuses on an earlier period, 50's and 60's. Obviously she couldn't interview people like Weissner, Underhill etc. since there not around, but I guess she gave it her best shot.
I think Henry will be in the shorter of the 2 films, along with many other 70's era climbers.

Yes. They seemed to have changed the title often over the many years they worked on it. I'm a little confused myself.
