Well, the film is out. When I was in Portland for the Transitions Cambodia fundraiser, the theater had a poster for the film and a one-week run time.
It is Am Limit, or “To the Limit,” a documentary by Pepe Danquart about the sport of speed climbing, which was shot in Yosemite as the Huber brothers, Thomas and Alex, try to break the speed record on the 3000 foot Nose of El Capitan.
In 2006 Der Stern Magazine sent me to Yosemite to document this production. I had thoroughly enjoyed myself and am looking forward to seeing this film, especially since I was able to see how they were piecing parts of it together.
