Andy Parkin is regarded as one of the world's finest alpine climbers. But in 1984 he suffered a near fatal climbing accident in the Alps. His slow rehabilitation involved painting and sculpting the mountains that had so very nearly claimed his life. Now Andy is known as much for his inspirational artwork as his return to climbing. Finalist Graz 09, Banff 09 and Trento 09, Winner best film Shaff 09 and winner Jury Prize Kendal 09.
Simon Yates (mountaineer and author) and renowned for "Touching the Void" " This eloquent and insightful film reveals the mind of an inspiring alpinist and artist"
Ian Parnell (renowned British alpinist and photographer) " An extraordinary film about an extraordinary person. It goes well beyond the surface gloss of most climbing-related films, delving deep into the heart of what it means to be a human beingin the mountains, an artist, an adventurer and a survivor. This portrait of Parkin is unintrusive, poetic, moving and completely believable; all-in-all a beautiful bit of film-making"
