Valley Uprising (2014)

US 103m, Colour / B&W
Directors: Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen, Josh Lowell: Cast: Peter Sarsgaard (narrator), Alex Honnold, Yvon Chouinard, Royal Robbins, Lynn Hill , Dean Potter, John Long, Jim Bridwell

Simultaneously inspirational, hilarious and terrifying, the exploits of three generations of climbers is documented in this unforgettable film about young men and women who have made their home in Yosemite valley since the late 1950s. As a historical overview of the development of sport climbing in the US, Valley Uprising is also a fascinating testament to the climbing counter-culture that flourished amid the conservative values of the National Park Service. Filled with colourful larger than life characters, this is a film that can be enjoyed by non-climbers and climbers alike (Klaus Ming July 2018).
