Award-winning director Alastair Lee and climber Robbie Phillips presents a new adventure, big-wall climbing in Madagascar.

Multi-award-winning director Alastair Lee presents a new adventure, following British climbers Robbie Phillips, Calum Cunningham and Alan Carne as they attempt to open a new route, ground up, on a 700m big wall called Tsaranoro Atsimo in Madagascar. The walls of Tsaranoro are as wild and bold as the country, the rock beautifully carved as if by a providential hand, and the story is that of a real adventure; friends taking the risks that come hand-in-hand with pushing boundaries.

However, once the free climbing begins, disaster strikes. Alan takes a bad fall, breaking his leg, and an epic ordeal unfolds to get Alan from the remote big wall to safety. From here the mood changes; Robbie and Calum are left with some big questions and bigger fears as they must decide whether to continue with their push or give in to their emotions as they learn the hardest way possible what it takes to open a new route on one of the biggest vertical faces in Africa.

Alastair and Robbie will both be on hand to present the film, answer Q&As afterwards, and show some unseen footage lifting the lid on big-wall filmmaking.
