Roraima - Climbers of the Lost World
Austria / 2012 / 97'
Kurt Albert, Holger Heuber and the sports climbing champion Stefan Glowacz face a difficult challenge: the ascent of Mount Roraima in South America. A colossal rock plateau with sheer cliffs, surrounded by thick impenetrable fog and situated in the heart of the wild jungle, with torrential rain and temperatures of up to 40 degrees making it almost impossible to reach. Roraima – Climbers of the Lost World takes us to an unimaginable place where man has never set foot and allows us to discover not only breathtaking natural scenery, but also the value of friendship and solidarity.
