Magnetic Mountains

Mountains provide a stark, but beautiful, arena in which to engage our limitations - physical or psychological - real or imagined. The risks involved are rarely an end in themselves but, without them, can anything lacking the mystery of the unknown be called an adventure?


Where do we draw the line between recklessness and cowardice? And, if confronted with our own mortality, how de we readjust it, if at all?  Can we attain anything worthwhile without at least being prepared to risk something of ourselves?


Magnetic Mountains is an award winning feature-length documentary that follows the story of an everyman who, after falling from an Alpine north face, is struggling to find a balance. Featuring some of the biggest names in mountain sports, it will explore the psychology of risk taking in the mountains, asking – is it really worth it?
