Chris Bonington - Life and Climbs selected for Banff and Graz Mountain Film Festivals


The film about Chris Bonington has been selected as one of the finalists of the 2015 Banff Mountain Film Festival and of Mountainfilm Graz 2015.

After the Spotkania FilmFestival in Poland’s Zakopane and the Cervino CineMountain Festival, Chris Bonington - Life and Climbs has now been selected by the prestigious Mountain Film Festivals in both Banff (Canada) and Graz (Austria). The documentary about the great British mountaineer was made by planetmountain.com and directed by Vinicio Stefanello on behalf of the Courmayeur Town Council for the Piolets d’Or 2015, during which Bonington received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award.

Chris Bonington - one of the great mountaineers of the second half of the twentieth century - retraces the stories and adventures of a lifetime exploring and climbing the world’s mountains. “It feels like I’m still there…” explains Bonington, remembering those mountains and moments still so vivid and present in his mind. This is the starting point for a journey and a reflection that embraces the deepest, most noble but also contradictory sentiments of this mountaineer and man. His love for his wife and children, his decision to live for and from mountaineering, his friendships, the conquests but also the pain of the loss of so many friends become the story, touching and sincere, of a unique experience and research that never ends, just like all great passions.
