Matt Heason picks out one of the highlights of this year's Sheffield Adventure Film Festival
Posted: 3 February 2012
We asked Matt Heason, the organiser of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival to select a cracking trailer for a Friday afternoon and this is what he came up. Rather topically, 'Cold' is a very personal account of an expedition to climb 8,000m+ Gasherbrum 2 in winter.
Climbing with Simone Moro and Denis Urubko - currently attempting Nanga Parbat in winter - American climber, Cory Richards, carried a compact digital camera on the mountain and produced this account of the climb which both nearly killed them and resulted in Richards becoming the first American to summit an 8,000m peak in winter. And yes, we have featured it before, but we reckon it merits another look.
The film's already won numerous awards and you can catch it at ShAFF this year from 9-11 March. More details at:
