The Alpinist 12A
To book, click a time above.
Turning climbing from a niche pursuit to mainstream media event, The Alpinist follows Marc-Andre Leclerc who has, until now, climbed alone and away from the limelight. On remote alpine faces with no camera, no rope and no margin for error, the 23-year old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history, and yet he draws scant attention. Intrigued, veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall) sets out to make a film about Marc-Andre. But the Canadian soloist is an elusive subject: nomadic and publicity shy, he doesn’t own a phone or car and is reluctant to let the film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. The Alpinist is an intimate documentary of a visionary climber who follows the path of his own passion.
