Baffin, with Marc-André Leclerc

di

The film Baffin, in memory of the Canadian alpinist Marc-André Leclerc who lost his life in March 2018 along with Ryan Johnson.

As is well known unfortunately, in March 2018 Canadian alpinist Marc-André Leclerc perished in Alaska along with his climbing partner Ryan Johnson. This film retraces Leclerc’s ascents up Great Sail Peak of Baffin Island in 2016 together with Brette Harrington and Joshua Lavigne, and provides greater insight into the 25-year-old recognised universally as one of the most talented alpinists of his generation.
