Special Preview: Statement Of Youth
The eagerly-awaited first look at the film from Nick Brown, tracing the highs (and lows) of the UK climbing scene in the 1980s.
The 1980s saw climbing standards rise exponentially. At the start of the decade, 7b+ was cutting edge, but by the end of the decade 9a was the new world standard.
A small group of climbers would do anything to allow themselves to climb full-time; sleeping in sheds underneath crags, shoplifting for food and clothes, and living off the dole.
Statement Of Youth features those climbers who went on to become some of the most influential figures in the history of British climbing, including Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon, Johnny Dawes, Andy Pollitt, Martin 'Basher' Atkinson, Chris Gore, Zippy, Craig Smith, Steve the Pro, Mark Leach, Quentin Fisher and Ed Douglas.
Enjoy a preview of highly anticipated UKC Documentary, Statement of Youth.
Get involved with award winner Nick Brown as he shines a light on the filmmaking process, joined by Graham Desroy and star of the film Chris Core.
