Guest Presents: The Alpinist
The Alpinist is an awe-inspiring documentary of visionary climber Marc-André Leclerc, a free-spirited 23-year-old known for making some of the boldest solo ascents in history. With no cameras, no rope and no margin for error, Marc-André’s approach is the essence of solo adventure. Preferring to climb alone, and notoriously publicity shy, his quiet accomplishments astonished and inspired veteran documentarian Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall). The Alpinist follows the elusive Marc-André as his climbs become bigger and more daring, to the astonishment of even the most elite climbers.
Why You Should See This Film
With dazzling alpine cinematography, mixing both helicopter shots and GoPro footage that places you right in Leclerc’s shoes, The Alpinist is seriously heart-in-your-mouth viewing. A must see for thrill-seeking fans of Free Solo, The Dawn Wall and more.
