World Film Premiere: Distilled, with Andy Cave & Paul Diffley

Scotland in winter is an arena where mountaineers pit their skills against exacting climbs, often in ferocious conditions, and is respected by climbers around the world. Distilled examines what makes the climbing here so potent.

Andy Cave first climbed in Scotland as a teenager. This was the start of a lifelong journey for Andy, which took him from the depths of a Yorkshire coal mine to the peaks of the Himalayas. As the story unfolds we see dramatic footage of Andy climbing some of Scotland's classic and most challenging winter routes in the full spectrum of conditions that Scotland's mountains can conjure. Distilled is a celebration of Scottish winter climbing and a poignant profile of a life spent in the mountains. The world premiere of Distilled brings both Andy and Hotaches Productions filmmaker Paul Diffley together to introduce and discuss the film, and take Q&A from the audience.
